Respect For the Others And Fair Play Is Intrinsic To Sport

Tony Estanguet, two-time Olympic Champion in Canoe Slalom Aims To Share His Experience With the Youth On Fair Play

Tony Estanguet, one of the Athlete Role Models visited the CIFP booth and talked about his experience of fair play.

'I think fair play is extremely important when you do a sport. I experienced the real fair play spirit many times when I competed as a canoer. When I won gold medal at the Olympic Games in Athens after the final it was not known immediately who was the winner. Nevertheless, we decided to celebrate the moments of victory together! The most important thing was to share our pleasure with each other. My aim is to talk about this kind of experiences and encourage the youth to live in the spirit of fair play.'
