Other teams in the race for the best team title were the Jug rowing team from Dubrovnik, VK Sveti Krševan, yachtsmen Šime Fantela and Igor Marenić, the Nada rugby club from Split, the Split Tommy indoor soccer team and the Mornar Brdospas water-polo club from Split.
The Pujanko judo club was named the best crew while other notable names in sports were Blanka Vlašić, the track and field athlete, Ivan Kljaković Gašpić, the yachtsman and Duje Ajduković, the tennis player.
