Jovica Spajić was born in a small village near Priboj – a town surrounded with magnificent mountains and the river Lim in their foothill.
Searching for his quintessence, he continues his schooling in Sremska Kamenica and after graduating from High School of the Internal Affairs, he returns to his hometown where he works until 2008 as a police officer in Priboj police station. The same year, he comes to the capital and becomes a member of Special Anti-terrorist Unit (SAJ) within the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Serbia.
Guided by motives enhanced by his permanent desire for constant self-improvement in order to broaden the mind which is resisting selfish, low, materialistic impulses, he perfects and completes his spiritual expansion by spreading out into equally sublime physical spheres of interests and actions.
He is a black belt holder in Japanese jiu-jitsu and judo. He competed in Cross Fit and accomplished outstanding results in all disciplines. Since 2012 he has been a member of the Serbian ultra marathon national team and has represented his country at the world most significant endurance races and competitions.
He persistently improves and acquires knowledge and skills through continuous courses and training in alpinism, free climbing, parachuting, survival in extreme conditions, topography and nutrition. He is exceptionally tactically, mentally and physically trained.
All the experience allowed him to undertake the greatest and most extreme ventures a human body can bear. He carefully chooses the biggest and toughest world races to take part in. In 2012, his versatility, readiness, motive and a deep faith in himself lead him to the most demanding world ultra marathon races where he becomes one of the best ultramarathon runners in the world. The exceptional thing about him is that he factually is a competitor but above all he moves his own limits in the fight with his strongest rival – himself.
Jovica’s aim is to awaken and motivate other people with his results to understand that they can always move their limits, beat themselves, be persistent, committed and believe deeply in their own journey. No matter whether it is the race or life problems, surrender is not an option.
