5th Trojka Iz Bloka Chicago

The event was started off brilliantly by Nikola Mirotic opening the tournament as its first shooter and setting the pace with 13 points. The 1st round of competition saw 72 competitors trying to beat Mirotic’s score but only only, Pavle Cosic, can boast about topping an NBA players score.

After the first round was complete, while the judges were compiling the top 20 who will move to the Quarter Finals, we had a special performance by Aleks Chicago. Aleks debuted his new song “Putevi Raja”, featuring Melita, for the first time at our charity tournament. Shortly after Aleks’ performance, the quarter finals were under way.

There were plenty of returning champions and top finishers from previous years, but this year, the Crown went to NIKOLA JOSIPOVIC!!! Nikola has won second place previously in Chicago and New York and fourth place in Mladenovac, Serbia. We’re very glad he is persistent and came back again to claim his new crown. Second Place went to newcomer GABE EGERT and the Third Place finisher was last year’s champion NIKOLA BOROJEVIC. Thank you to all of our competitors, guests, friends and sponsors for making this year the most successful Trojka ever!! We raised $20,018 altogether and had a great time doing it!

We can honestly say this was the best Trojka ever and a perfect fit for a 5th Anniversary. We are confident that our charity three point tournament has become a tradition which is firmly cemented into this community and will continue to grow each year. THANK YOU EVERYONE for your support!!!!
