Bosnia’s best basketball referee, Ademir Zurapovic, will referee the final match of the basketball tournament of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, between the national teams of the United States of America and France.
The 49-year-old referee from Tuzla already refereed several matches of this tournament, including the semifinals in which the United States defeated Australia with a score of 97:78.
For Zurapovic, who has been a FIBA referee since 1995, this is the first time at the Olympic Games.
