Reason: "Sports was always a big part of my life. I constantly was always looking to play any type of sport, and as soon as I found a sport like rugby, I found my focus point. I started at 13 years old at Burnaby Rugby Club. They kind of took me in." (World Rugby YouTube, 11 Mar 2016)
Additional information

ESCAPE
Made a refugee during the Yugoslav wars, with he and his mother living in a United Nations camp on the border of Croatia and Bosnia for six months. They moved to the Croatian town of Pula for two years before being cleared to move to Canada, after a church agreed to sponsor them, when CEJVANOVIC was four years old. "You either left or you took a serious risk of getting killed. All sorts of thing can happen. I would definitely say I'm one of the lucky ones. My life in Canada, for me it's like winning the lottery." (edition.cnn.com, 25 Mar 2016; theglobeandmail.com, 17 Feb 2017)


INTERNATIONAL FIRST
Became the first Bosnian-born player to play international rugby. (edition.cnn.com, 25 Mar 2016)


SEVENS LESSONS
"I used to be a very lazy rugby player. Sevens taught me how to work off the ball." (theglobeandmail.com, 17 Feb 2017)
