At the IAAF Outdoor World Championships in 2013, Vuleta became the first Serbian track and field athlete to take home a medal.

Early Life, Family, and Education

Ljubia Spanovic, the champion’s devoted father, and sporty mother Vesna Spanovic gave birth to Ivana Spanovic. Ivana’s mother was also a long jumper and a well-known athlete in her day.

Spanovic was likewise drawn to her mother’s sport and eventually became what she is now.

Similarly, Ivana’s schooling and education remain unclear, however, we do know some details about her youth.

She was a great Avril Lavigne fan, and one of her friends gave her the CD. She enjoyed all of her songs as a child.

After winning the world junior title in 2008, Ivana received a small girlie automobile named a Citroen C1. She instantly developed an attachment to it as she had just started driving then.

During her younger days, the world champion liked experimenting with her hair. She shaved part of her head but afterward regretted it and claimed to have had a chaotic upbringing.

Ivana enjoyed karate as a child. She trained for two years alongside her older brother and achieved the green belt level.

Karate was discontinued primarily because of her brother’s departure.

Body Measurements, Age, Height, and Weight

Spanovic was born on May 10, 1990, making her 32 in 2022. She is also 5’9″ tall, which adds to her allure (175cm).

Furthermore, the world champion weighs around 63 kg, which is an ideal height-to-weight ratio for an athlete like herself.

Ivana took silver in the long jump at the Diamond League race.

Ivana went on to win silver in the long jump at the 2015 Diamond League race. As a result, the Serbian Olympic Committee declared her the best female athlete of the year.

Spanovic set a new national record, one of only a few that year. So we can definitely say that 2016 was a very good year for Vesna’s daughter.

Injuries In Leagues

However, pain and injuries are all too common in the lives of athletes. Spanovic was injured, so she only competed in two Diamond League conferences during the offseason.

Similarly, Ivana dominated the early stages of the competition. Nonetheless, she finished fourth in her last attempt.

Following that, Ivana won the 2017 Diamond League race in the long jump for the second time.

Spanovic’s presentation was thrilling to watch during the European Championships qualification round. However, a wound in that round forced her to surrender and protect her designation.

When it comes to the injury, it was to the Achilles tendon. Unfortunately, it forced Ivana to drop her final-season role.

Despite being injured earlier in the summer, Ivana won gold in the championship.

This Serbian champion suffered numerous injuries throughout the summer. As a result, she was forced to withdraw from the World Championships in Doha.

Furthermore, Ivana suffered a metatarsal bone break in June 2020. Because of that incident, she decided to leave the season. As a result, Ivana only played one game in Novi Sad that season.

Net Worth and Salary

The former world champion earns a lot of money from her professional career. Brand endorsement and deals are two other sources of income.

Ivana currently represents the brands Red Bull and Nike. Her net worth is estimated to be $10 million.

Spanovic’s salary is unknown, but she is officially paid in the five figures. We will keep you updated as soon as we receive more information.
