Wörth's Mayor Thomas Gneißl honored successful athletes at the New Year's reception in Hörlkofen's town hall.
Wörth - Mona Mayer impressed with her "fantastic performance" in the 4 x 400 meter relay at the European Championships in Munich, enthused the community leader.
With her team, the athlete achieved 5th place at the European Championships.
In singles she took 1st place at the German championship over 400 meters, 1st place at the Bavarian open-air championship over 800 meters and 2nd place at the Bavarian indoor championships over 400 meters.
Last year, Andreas März swam to the national top again in his U20 age group and once again achieved “three excellent podium finishes at the German championships” – one 3rd place and two 2nd places.
His parents accepted the award for the successful athlete, who is studying in America.
"Andreas Brummer is on the road with the Frisian pentathlon, the stone throw and fencing in sports that are not quite as prominent and media-heavy, but he is very successful there," announced the mayor of another honor.
Brummer won the Bavarian stone throwing championships, was runner-up in the Friesian pentathlon and also vice-champion at the Lower Bavarian epee fencing championships.
With Renate Dünhuber, Gneißl welcomed a "long-time regular guest" at the sports awards in the field of tennis.
Dünhuber fought his way to second place at the southern Bavarian championships. Tennis ace Margret Köckhuber has also been on the list of honors for many years.
She and her team from TC Forstenried were happy about the 1st place at the Bavarian.
Thomas Elsenberger, head of the Wörth community, welcomed the “well-known repeat offender when it comes to outstanding successes in curling”.
In the individual target shooting competition, the top athlete is “regularly at the top”.
It wasn't quite enough for a podium finish at the Bavarian championship, but Elsenberger still qualified to take part in the German championship.
With his team from EC Sassbach, he achieved "two great titles" - 1st place in the European Cup in men's team play, which is equivalent to a European championship title in this discipline, and the title of German champion in men's team play.
Elsenberger spontaneously decided to donate half of his prize money of 200 euros to the helpers' group of the municipality of Wörth for their tireless work.
