Grief in the Israeli and European basketball

He was awarded for his good job by being an observer at the World Championships and the Olympics - 2010 World Championship in Turkey and 2012 London Olympics. Besides, he was officiating the final game at the 1998 World Championship between Russia and Yugoslavia.

Mr. Virovnik was very popular at the international basketball world. He was a member of FIBA Technical committee, FIBA Instructor and FIBA commissioner.
