Night of sports
Monday evening, in Austria's eastern region "Burgenland" (my club's home region) the sportswoman, sportsman, team and trainer of the year were honoured.
Next to Michael Stocker (Grasski), Georg Tischler (disability sports - athletics), Bernd Wiesberger (Golf) and Andreas Ivanschitz (Football) I was one of the five nominees. Burgenlands sport journalists voted for Ivanschitz in the end.
Together with my clubmates from HSV Pinkafeld, we were nominated in the category team of the year, but the victory was devoted to the male swimming team of Eisenstadt.
Our club coach Richard Schuh was again nominated in the category trainer of the year. The coach of a football team, Paul Gludovatz, could gain the vicotry.
Sportswoman of the year became Miriam Ziegler (figure skating).
It was a success that representatives of the orienteering sport were nominated in three different out of four categories.
"Drumatical" and "ABBAriginal" were responsible for an entertaining framework programme.
