back Fair Play: The Real Winners are…

Varda Mirkin from the Israelian Mamanet team Galili got one of the three Fair Play Awards at the 5th World Sports Games 2017 in Riga.

The referee called a ball “out” – Varda called it “in” to her own team’s disadvantage. The second award was given to the Austrian judoka Andreas Mruk (picture), who helped an injured opponent by carrying him out of the gymnasium to let him have professional medical care. The third award was given to the Brazilian table tennis team acceptance of the referees’ verdicts and treating referees with respect. CSIT has implemented the Green Card for special merits in the field of Fair Play. Referees can show this card to athletes who deserve it in their opinion.
