Sebastian Kornum is Denmark’s Sportsman of the Year

In front of 1,600 people, Bent Jensen, the Director of the Danish financial institution Sparbank, handed 18-year old pro windsurfer Sebastian Kornum the Sportsman of the Year award. Jensen said that Sebastian won the award because for the past six years there isn’t a junior title he did not win. The young windsurfer, Jensen continued, won 5 Nordic Titles, 7 Danish Titles, and the Junior World Champion title. Sebastian managed to become an expert windsurfer without disregarding his studies. He is a valuable role model for young people and a great windsurfing ambassador, concluded Jensen.

Now that you know what Bent Jensen had to say, here is what Sebastian Kornum had to say about winning the Sportsman of the Year award:

“I am very, very proud of this award!” said Sebastian. “I see it as an award not only for the way I do my favourite sport, but also as a true acknowledgement of the sport itself. Windsurfing and surfing certainly are fantastic sports, and I am glad if I can inspire other young people, too. I look forward to help them the best I can.”
