Last month, Radović finished third in a doubles event in a cadet tournament in the Czech Republic. He partnered with Lithuanian Merdadasom Stankevičiusom at the event. As a 13-year-old, Radović competed at the able-bodied 2014 World Team Table Tennis Championships for his country. He was one of the youngest competitors at the event.
