Nov-15-06  dehanne: Is Bora from Kazakhstan?
Jan-16-08  brankat: No, Bora Tot was from former Yugoslavia.

Had his best years during the 1930s, and again after the WWII, in the '40s and '50s. He was a member of the Yugoslav Olympic team in Munich, 1936. After the War played regularly in Yugoslav national Championships.
