Deutscher SportpresseBall named Wladimir Klitschko «Sportsman with heart»

On 5th November at the Old Opera in Frankfurt the annual ball was held. For 35 years Deutscher SportpresseBall raised the reputation of a cult event of German sport, where stars of Olympic Games, champions of the world and Europe are awarded.

Annually the event gathers famous politicians, businessmen, cultural workers, representatives of media and stars of show business. On the stage of the big hall, eminent sportsmen receive awards. Not for sport victories, but rather for charitable activities, humanity and generosity.

Organizers of the event assert, that in the time when egoism as well as success at any given price affect the society, the prize-winners with exemplary social behavior and unconstrained emotionality show how important it is to live these values.

Thanks to the charitable activity and successfully implemented projects of the Klitschko Foundation, Wladimir Klitschko for the second time became a laureate of German National Award and bears a title of the “Sportsman with heart”.

The team of the Klitschko Foundation are proud of this award, but it is just the beginning. There are even more new aims and projects!
