On Thursday the 28th of November, the ESSF Student Sports Gala took place. Our very own Marissa Damink had been nominated for best sports woman and our men’s team of NSK Teams 2019 were nominated for best sports team of 2019. A group of Gauls were present in their best black-tie outfit: a suit or dress with of course neon running shoes underneath. Our trainer Ton was there too in his best (training-) suit. Everyone had fun: there was great live music, and free champagne and beer. The award ceremony started at around ten o’clock. First, the best sports man of 2019 was announced: Jacco Pereboom. Next, the category Best Sports Woman. Marissa was the first to be called on stage. After the short introduction of all three nominees, the envelope with the winner came. Wim Koch opened the envelope…. ‘and the winner is ..’ Marissa! She accepted the heavy bronze trophy and gave a short speech: for Marissa another trophy to add to her collection of ESSF student sport gala trophies. Next, the best sports team of 2019 was announced. And the NSK men’s team was second!
After the ceremony, Footloose (and our Gaul Yuk) got us moving with a dance workshop. Some found out that besides running around in circles, they also have a talent for spinning around in circles. Meanwhile Michiel found his talent of fitting shaped blocks in the right holes.
We then captured the moment with pictures in the photobooth and the great evening continued through the night in Kafée Kix.
