The Shoe of Laura Sárosi
Nominated by Márton Jedlicska:
The European Badminton Championship, in which Laura Sárosi also participated, as the Hungarian contestant, was organized in France. During the game one shoe of the German Karin Schnaase- probable winner -broke away, and since she didn’t have a spare one right there by the field, she would have had to give up the race, since according to the rules she couldn’t have asked for a break to change it. At this point, Laura, instead of throwing up her arms and rejoicing for certainly making it to the next round, ran to her bag and smiling, handed over her extra pair to her opponent. Laura did not make it further during the Championship, but her gesture was something that we can be more proud of than an eventually lost medal, and that captured the attention of the entire sports world.‘
