The entire IFMA community have been part of the month-long online voting for the International World Games Association’s Greatest Athlete of All Time. Sofia Olofsson and IFMA would like to congratulate Nicol David the Squash superstar and former United Nations Development Program Ambassador, who has been declared as the outright winner with 318943 votes.
“Nicol David is an inspirational Ambassador. It was an incredible race and it was good to see how athletes got support not only from their own sport but also from their country and the highest sport authorities. Sport really unites people in a special way and the vote was a celebration of that.”
“It is a celebration for sport but also that 3 females have made it in the top 5 shows that gender equality shines in the world of sport!”
Sofia congratulated Nicole and further stated that she is now looking forward to representing Sweden again in the World Games 2022. She was IWGA athlete of the year in 2016 and then won 1 gold medal at the World Games 2017 in Muaythai.
