Eduard Tiozzo, or just Eddie, as his friends call him, is a life-long athlete and an expert in physiology and sports science.
He earned his undergraduate and masters degrees in Sports Science in Zagreb, Croatia before moving to Miami, USA to obtain his doctorate.
We spoke with Eddie about his formative years in Dubrovnik, how he got into sports in the first place, about his extensive schooling, his views on the culture he was immersed in in the Old World vs. that which he experiences now living in Miami, as well as about various aspects of, if I might add, quite interesting work that he dedicates his time to these days. . .
Note: To you fans of computer science and UFOs, the acronym CP does not stand for Component Pascal and this ET is very much a terrestrial.
We encountered the NFL linebacker and an athlete in the truest sense, star of the Travel Channel's show and citizen of the world Dhani Jones strolling the streets of Dubrovnik. Approachable and personable, he immediately agreed to an interview.
We met John Vargas, the coach of Stanford University's waterpolo team, in the township of Mlini, Croatia. He kindly agreed to an interview just minutes before his team was to face "Gusar", one of the local II Division teams.
We met Tony Azevedo, an American waterpolo ace and easily one of the top world players, at the pool of "Jug CO" in Dubrovnik. Approachable and down to earth fellow, as most greats are, he immediately agreed to share a few words about his background, the sport, cultural adjustment to living in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
