Sefedin Hodžić has been an employee of ArcelorMittal Zenica since 2008 in the Transport department, as a section manager. He is married and the father of two children. Apart from his family and regular business obligations, he is involved in athletics in the discipline of javelin throwing. Since 2015, he has been achieving notable results at the Balkan Championships, winning gold medals. In these seven years of the competition, he did not perform in 2021 due to difficult conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

ArcelorMittal Zenica, led by CEO Nikhil Mehta, recognized the remarkable results of our colleague and supported Sefedin’s participation in the Balkan Championship, held in September 2022 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

More than 300 competitors from 12 countries participated in the competition. In the javelin throwing discipline, in the final part of the competition, the eight best took to the field, where Sefedin showed his quality by achieving his personal record and winning first place – gold.

“I train and practice every day, I make the maximum effort to be better than myself, first of all. In a way, I expected an excellent result because I am aware of the effort involved. If you work well, you can expect a good result. It’s the same in business, and in competition. The key is to do your best, and good results are consequences.”
