During his tour around Europe, Samir Becic was unexpectedly honored with the coat of arms of the city of Sarajevo, Bosnia. Samir met with the Deputy Mayor of Sarajevo, Ivica Šarić, with whom he discussed health and fitness in Bosnia and building a stronger connection between Sarajevo and Houston. It was during this time that Deputy Mayor Saric officially presented Samir with the esteemed coat of arms of the capital city of Bosnia Herzegovina.
