Fair Play is an Attitude say Martin Sesaker and Markus Furnlund Skogvold Young Olympians
Two Norwegian curling players, Martin Sesaker and Markus Furnlund Skogvold shared their thoughts on fair play with the International Fair Play Committee when they participated in different activities conducted by various international organisations as part of the Culture and Education Programme at the first ever Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck.
Martin believes that curling is a gentlemen sport and there is a lot of fair play involved when they play. The players respect their opponents as much as their own team members. They discuss the niceties of the game and play by the rules.
According to Markus fair play is composed of different values like respect, trust, open-mindedness and that is what keeps the sports spirit alive. Fair play gives sport a lot of pleasure and everybody should behave in a fair manner on and off the field. Fair play is an attitude.
