Career[edit]

Tokič's first competition was in Montpellier, France where he won the ETTU Cup. Via Cagliari, Italy and Ljubljana, Slovenia he transferred to SV Plüderhausen, Germany in the 2000/2001 season. He then went back to Slovenia to work within a training group, with which he stayed for three years. In 2003, he returned to Germany to play for TTC Frickenhausen. In 2005/2006, he won the ETTU Cup, the DTTB Cup and the German League with the TTC Frickenhausen. In the 2007 European Championships he reached the quarter finals in the men's singles competition.

Tokič has participated on 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China[3] where he lost in the third round to the eventual champion Ma Lin,[4] and the 2009 World Table Tennis Championships in Yokohama, Japan.[5][6][7] In 2010 Tokič attended the 2010 Slovenian Open international table tennis tournament.[8] In October 2011 he won a bronze medal in both the Singles and Doubles competitions of the 2011 European Championships. At the 2012 Olympics, he again lost in the third round, this time to Gao Ning of Singapore.[9]

At the 2016 Olympics in Rio he lost in round 4 against Dimitrij Ovtcharov. Bojan took the lead of 1-0 after playing the longest table tennis game in history of Olympic games scoring 64 points total which means he won 33 to 31. In the first game he suffered a pain in his right hand which disabled him to play at his best. At the end he lost 4:1.[10][11]

He is in a relationship with table tennis player Monika Molnar.[12] Tokič is being sponsored by the company Tibhar.
