Mirsad Becirovic from the town of Karlovac has been dubbed the first blind person in the world to win a taekwondo gold medal in a regular competition.
The 36-year-old has revealed that he will try to make it to the Paralympic Games in London, but will have to compete in judo as they do not have taekwondo there.
Mirsad Becirovic became blind after an accident in 1998.
"I was at rock bottom but I decided to fight", said Mirsad Becirovic to daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
