The best women handball player of all time (IHF website), Svetlana Ceca Kitic (50), admit to Serbian media that “she didn’t believe that will be voted as the best”. Two times voted as a best player of the World in 1977 and 1987 was honest in interview with balkan-handball.com:
– Sincerely, I didn’t believe. I finished my career a long time ago, people maybe forgot on me, so I had a wish, but I wasn’t sure. I thought that will be “dead heat” between me and Sinaida Turtschina. I only could admit to her, that she was better. Anja Andersen finished her career after me and she is from Scandinavia, where is Internet more popular than in the Balkans, but I am really glad that even fans who didn’t watch me on the court, voted for me. That is making me so proud.
