Night of the sports

For the 9th time the "Night of the sports" of Austrian's region "Burgenland" was organised. This event is dedicated to honour the sportswoman, sportsman, trainer and team of the year 2008. It was already a great honour for me to be one of the five nominees in the category "Sportsman of the year". One of my coaches, Richard Schuh, was nominated in the category "Trainer of the year".

Sportswoman of the year was awarded to Birgit Koschischek (Swimming), Sportsman to Bernd Wiesberger (Golf), Trainer to Paul Gludovatz (Football) and team to Oberwart Gunntes (Basketball). So, we have seen no big surprises and the best-known athletes and trainers were voted by Burgenlands sport-journalists.

As every year, we have seen a nice organised event with a delicious buffet after the official part.
