A formal award ceremony for student athletes who achieved impressive results at the state student championship “Unisport Finals 2017” took place at the UNIRI Rectorate on Friday, November 6, 2017. The medals were handed in by the University of Rijeka Madam Rector, Professor Snježana Prijić Samaržija, Ph.D., and the president of the Rijeka University Sports Association, Haris Pavletić:

  • to the most successful faculty of the Unisport League 2016/2017
  • to the most successful sportswoman and sportsman of the Unisport League 2016/2017
  • teams/individuals – award winners of the Unisport League 2016/2017


We are aware of the challenges that sports and physical and health education are faced with and we are looking for new paradigms in these segments; one American, the other European. It is clear that there is not enough physical and health education at the universities and I invite everyone to think about this problem. On the other hand, our task is to make our university sports and results even more visible, concluded Madam Rector while thanking and congratulating the participants.

Haris Pavletić thanked Madam Rector for the support given to the university sports so far, as well as the Vice-Rector Professor Goran Turkalj, Ph.D., and the Faculty of Engineering Dean, Professor Jasna Prpić Oršić, Ph.D., for their support and the monitoring of the student athletes activities, as well as to all faculty teachers of physical education. We have the logistics, we have a strategy, we just need infrastructure. We need a real sports hall - a temple of university sports. This is a problem that has been troubling us for years and I hope, with the help of the University Administration, that dream will soon be realized, concluded Pavletić.
