On July 4, an official ceremony for the winners of XVII International “Fair Play” Award, took place in historic Italian city Castiglione Fiorentino.

The President of XVII International “Fair Play” Award – Angelo Morelli greeted the athletes who, in their sporting careers, followed ethical norms and rejected the notion of victory by any means necessary.

In the nomination “Sport and Life”, the winner was the only two-time RG AA Olympic champion – Evgenia Kanaeva. Receiving the award, the Vice-President of RRGF noted that such an award is a high sign appreciation for an athlete, who put their hearts and souls into their professional activity.

In the nomination “Life for Sport”, the award was given to the Olympic fencing champion – Pavel Kolobkov.  In his speech, Deputy Minister of Sport In Russia, emphasized that the call for fair play is clear for every person. In his opinion,  a clear call for reaching sport ideals, including merciless war against doping, has been sent to the world from Castiglione Fiorentino.

The rector of Russian International Olympic University – Lev Belousov attended the ceremony as a guest. Answering questions from the hosts of the ceremony, he told the audience about the University and Master’s program in Sports Administration, which is the major educational product of the RIOU.

    Yeah I know she likes to keep it private. Maybe she would have made a statement a long time from now. Either way, I guess we will just wait until Viner tells us whether it is a boy or girl and when the baby is due, lol

    @M, I don”t think Zhenya would announce this kind thing officially except maybe journalists to ask her. She didn’t even tell the public her wedding. She is always low profile and protects her private life.

  3. M says:

    Congrats to her if it is true! I know that has been one of her dreams.

    I am sure she wanted to say it in her own time than her coach givign it away, lol
