World Fair Play Awards

The World Fair Play Awards were organised by the International Fair Play Committee in Budapest, Hungary in Friday, 17 June 2022. Edina Andrejkó, ENGSO Executive Committee member representing Hungarian Competitive Sport Federation, participated in the event.


At the festive event in Buda Castle Jenő Kamuti, President of the International Fair Play Committee, reminded the audience in his opening speech that the concept of fair play has been around since the ancient Olympics. He added that today, social and ethical changes make it increasingly necessary to expand the idea of fair play. The sport leader stressed that with the rise of cheating, lying, corruption, chauvinism, greed for money and political careerism, fair play is becoming increasingly important. Finally, he expressed his pleasure that, after a two-year break due to the pandemic, the best in sportsmanship could once again be honoured at a combined gala.
