Nenad Vukanić was a part of the Yugoslavian national team that clinched the bronze medal at the 2000 Olympic Games. A few months before the 2000 Games, he won the Champions League, as Becej player.
He has been working as a coach for years. At the end of 2017, Vukanić became the head coach of the French national team. Since then, the team has grown, slowly but surely climbing the ladders at both European and World contests. He plans on expanding France’s success at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and in 2024 when France will host the Games.
France didn’t qualify for the 18th World Championships in Gwangju this summer, but the French achieved a historic success at the Championships in South Korea. French male team, led by Vukanic, won the first place at the inaugural world’s tournament in beach water polo.
