Herr Botschafter Teuber

Krawuzikapuzi.
Da ist der Michi Teuber doch glatt (nach mehrmaliger Nominierung zum Laureus Sports Award) mit anderen Weltklassesportlern (Axel Schultz, Franziska van Almsick, Christoph Langen und Jochen Schuemann) zum Laureus Ambassador of Sports ernannt worden.
Gratulation - Chapeau
Wie wir ihn kennen wird er sich dort mit gleichem Einsatz für den Behindertensport, den Sport allgemein oder für die gute Sache einsetzen.

On december 12th, five german sporting persons including myself, were appointed Laureus ambassadors at the Laureus Media Awards 2005 in Munich. On behalf of Edwin Moses, Chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy, Vice-Chairman Boris Becker presented the certificates of appointment to Axel Schulz (boxing), Franziska van Almsick, who won 10 olympic medals in her carreer, double Olympic Champion Christoph Langen, America´s Cup winner Jochen Schuemann and to myself. The role of the Laureus Ambassadors will be to attend and participate in acitivities spearheaded by Laureus and to communicate the spirit and vision of Laureus: Sport has the power to change the world.

For me, the appointment means at first the obligation to support the social projects of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation all out. In his writing, Edwin Moses named the new members of the Laureus Friends and Ambassadors Programme as sporting heroes, who embody the qualities Laureus is searching for and pointed out, that only high profile individuals, who have become a role model were shortlisted for the nomination. In this context, I am of course proud to be invited by the sporting legends of the Laureus Academy to join the initiative. I am a Laureus-fan since my first nomination for the Laureus Awards in 2003 and I hope that I can support Laureus as a member of the paralympic movement in a special way.

The Laureus World Sports Awards were created to celebrate great sporting achievement and to raise awareness for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which is supported by the 40 members of the Laureus World Sports Academy. Laureus practises understood integration in awarding achievements in paralympic sports with the Laureus World Sportsperson with a Disability Award.
