Eugenio Monti – Fair Play Awardee

Eugenio Monti, story of the first ever World Fair Play Trophy

MontipostThe first ever World Fair Play Trophy was awarded to an Italian bobsleigh competitor, Eugenio Monti, for his remarkable act in the two-man competition at the 1964 Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck. When Monti learned that Nash had broken a part of his bobsled in the first run, he did not hesitate to lend the necessary replacement part to Nash and his partner Robin Dixon, who then went on to win the gold medal. Monti, though, won the glory and the respect of his fellow competitors. Everyone wins with fair play.
