Biography

Forward Uroš Marović was capped 203 times with the Yugoslav national team between 1967-76, scoring 198 goals. During his career, Marović played at three consecutive Olympic tournaments starting in 1968, at the 1975 World Championships and at the 1970 and 1974 European Championships. Marović won Olympic gold in 1968, European Championship bronzes in 1970 and 1974 and Mediterranean Games golds in 1967 and 1971 and silver in 1975. But Marović is probably most remembered for scoring a decisive goal in overtime at the 1968 Olympics in the gold medal match against the Soviet Union, which Yugoslavia eventually won 13-11. At the club level, Marović started with Jardan Split and from 1968-76 played with VK Partizan. With Partizan, Marović won Yugoslav titles in 1968, 1970 and 1972-76, Yugoslav Cups from 1973-76 and European Champions Cups in 1971, 1975 and 1976.

Marović finished his career soon after the 1976 Olympics and became a successful sports official. After working as a vice-president of Serbia & Montenegro Water Polo Federation, Marović was president of the Serbian Water Polo Federation from 2006-08. He also worked in various leading positions with VK Partizan until 2010, when he was elected president of VK Partizan.
