The volunteers of the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest were nominated for the International Fair Play Award by Balázs Fürjes, co-chair of the event's organising committee, together with Sebastian Coe, President of World Athletics for their dedicated and persistent voluntary contribution.

The award was presented to Balázs Németh, CEO of Budapest 2023 Zrt., Dr. Szilvia Perényi, Director of the WABudapest23 Volunteer Programme and six lucky volunteers by Balázs Fürjes, newly elected Hungarian member of the International Olympic Committee and Secretary General of Sunil Sabharwal, International Fair Play Committee. Prof. Dr. Tamás Sterbenz, Rector of the Hungarian University of Sports Science, also attended the ceremony.

The six lucky volunteers who were present to receive the award were selected by lot from among the volunteers who had completed the most volunteer hours. They all represented the more than 2,500 volunteers of the World Champ proudly holding their volunteer T-shirts to be acknowledged.

Congratulations to the WABudapest23 Volunteer Team, we are extremely proud!
