Zdravko Jezic (YUG)

Honor Water Polo (2010)

The information on this page was written the year of their induction.

“Pusko” played on three Olympic teams for Yugoslavia winning silver medals in 1952 and 1956. He contributed to the development of the “dynamic game” after restriction of movement was discontinued in 1950, helping to develop the “Yugoslav school” of fast-style water polo. He played in every one of the 113 consecutive national team games from 1950 to 1960 (captain 1958-1960) and in over 400 games for his Club Mladost’s team (captain 1952-1962). Bela Rajki called him one of the outstanding personalities of his time.
