Ivan Kljaković Gašpić, nicknamed Bambi, won silver medal at the 2008 Finn European Championship held in La Marina di Scarlino, Maremma, Tuscany, Italy, 2-10 May 2008. Ivan was born in 1984, and is a member of the Yacht club Zenta from the city of Split. He started sailing at the age of 12 and lives in the town of Solin near Split.

His very nice boat on the above photo is easily recognizable by red and silver squares from the Croatian Coat of Arms.
