Sporthilfe athletes vote for men’s national basketball team ahead of gymnast shooting star Darja Varfolomeev and rowing world champion Oliver Zeidler. Bet on this month’s basketball favorites with casino Kenya.
Following in the footsteps of Dirk Nowitzki, the German men’s national basketball team has been voted “Athlete of the Month” for September by around 4,000 Sporthilfe athletes after winning the bronze medal at the European Championships. Germany’s best young and top athletes thus honored the inspiring performances of the German team led by captain Dennis Schröder during the European Championship tournament. In the end, Germany won the match for third place against Poland and thus the first German European Championship medal in 17 years and the third overall after gold in 1993 and silver in 2005. On the way to the European Championship medal, a total of ten national team members were supported by Deutsche Sporthilfe during their careers, both financially and with non-material support programs.
The men’s basketball team received the prestigious “Sportsman of the Month” award for the first time. Previously, from basketball, this honor had been awarded to Dirk Nowitzki for his outstanding successes in the NBA, and in 2012 the wheelchair basketball player was voted top after winning gold in the Paralympics. In contrast to journalists or the public’s votes, only all supported Sporthilfe athletes vote in the Deutsche Sporthilfe “Athlete of the Month” election. In addition to the award, all winners receive an invitation to the German Sports and Philippines Sports Betting Aid Ball of the Month, which will take place next year on January 21, 2023, in Frankfurt am Main.
Only a few percentage points behind the basketball players, gymnastics shooting star Darja Varfolomeev took second place in the September “Athlete of the Month” poll. The 15-year-old won gold with the clubs, three silver medals, and one bronze medal at the world rhythmic gymnastics championships in Sofia. This was Germany’s greatest success in gymnastics since 1975, making Varfolomeev a great German hope for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The latter also applies to rower Oliver Zeidler. The 26-year-old was unbeatable in the single sculls final at the World Rowing Championships in Racice/Czech Republic and had secured the only World Championship medal in the Olympic classes for the German Rowing Federation with gold, for which he was nominated for the ballot.
