Isabell Werth (GER), one of equestrian sports most decorated champions, has once again stolen the show, receiving the Best Athlete Award at the ninth edition of the FEI Awards Gala 2017 held at the KIBON Avanza in Montevideo (URU) on 21 November 2017.
The German superstar (48) was unable to attend tonight’s ceremony but spoke to guests via video message, and Soenke Lauterbach, Secretary General of the German Federation received the award on her behalf.
“To receive the best athlete award is really fantastic it makes me really proud, really happy to get this support from so many people and that they’re really behind me and they respect what we have done in the last months”, Isabell Werth said. “2017 was just amazing, it was a really great year. It was all horses I have to say! Of course the highlight was Omaha with the World Cup final with Weihe, it was a fantastic freestyle!”
