In 1989, when I was 19 years old, my American shooting friends gave me the nickname SLIM. I guess, Nemanja Mirosavljev was too hard to pronounce (sometimes even for me), and my appearance definitely fitted the bill. And so, from that moment on, I’ve been known as Slim by most of my worldwide shooting friends.
Apart from having won medals at almost every possible competition except at the Olympics (been there 5 times!), my friends know me as one of the fastest shooters ever, and an excellent kneeling shooter.
What I’m really proud about myself is a change that I went through during my career. From absolutely “wild” approach to shooting, I turned to more scientific approach to the sport in trying to improve my results. As a result I discovered that all the knowledge I gained in this process I could easily transfer to other shooters!
So I started helping shooters, advising them…. Along the way I obtained the ISSF B coaching lisence, and it’s already been 9 years of coaching experience that I’ve greatly enjoyed, especially seeing my protégées progress and prosper with ease and at a great pace.
Snježana, Guy and myself have been sharing similar visions and enthusiasm towards shooting, coaching and life, and because of that I am sure that “10.9 SYNERGY” will prove to be the best coaching team ever. Give us the chance to prove it!
