Croatian rowing coach Nikola Bralić has been named the best coach in the world at the 2015 World Rowing Awards…

The World Rowing Federation (FISA), has honoured the best performances of 2015 at the World Rowing awards, with Bralić taking out the top coach award.

Bralić has successfully guided the Croatian men’s quadruple and double sculls over the last few years. The quad earned Croatia’s first ever senior World Championship title in 2010 and then when the double of Martin and Valent Sinković formed in 2014, Bralić led them on an unbeaten winning streak including World Championship titles in 2014 and 2015.

The awards will be presented on Saturday evening at a Gala dinner in Florida, USA.
