Ogy began swimming at the age of five as part of conditioning after surgery for Legg-Calvè-Perthes syndrome, which causes pain, loss of range of motion, and difficulty in walking and running. With the unwavering support of his mother, who drove him 60km every day for seven years to the local swimming club, the Serbian triathlete didn’t just beat the disease, he dominated it.

After 10 years of competitive swimming, he participated in his first triathlon, discovering his potential. The 10-time Balkan champion is poised not only to be the first Serbian triathlete to compete at the Olympic Games, but the first from the Balkan peninsula to qualify.

Achievements:

          10x ITU Balkan Champion

          current ETU European Aquathlon Champion (2019; 2020 race was not held)

          12x Continental Cup podiums

          Multiple Elite National Championships medals in Triathlon (Sprint, Olympic, Long distance), Duathlon, Aquathlon, Athletics and Cycling

When I see the scars on my right leg (which happens every day) it reminds me that with willpower and discipline it's possible to defy the odds.
