Summary

Born in Bosnia in the former SocialistFederal Republic of Yugoslavia, Aleksandar Duric overcame a difficult childhoodto become a junior canoeing champion. Against all odds, he made an unlikelyappearance at the 1992 Olympic Games whilst the fires of the Bosnian War ragedin his homeland, a war that had tragic consequences for the Duric family.

A nomadic career in football followed, beforeDuric finally found his feet and his home in Singapore. It was in this SoutheastAsian nation that Duric truly made his name, becoming an all-conquering forcein Singapore's top domestic league and going on to represent the Singaporenational team more than 50 times.

Told in a refreshingly frank and honest manner,Beyond Borders is far more than afootballer's memoir. Duric's tale of tragedy and triumph, adversity andadventure, is as surprising as it is inspiring.
