This self-experiment attracted attention not only amongst the wrestling fans before the Olympics. The journalist of FAZ, Daniel Meuren (http://www.faz.net/redaktion/daniel-meuren-11104348.html), exposed himself together with world champion Frank Stäbler to the torture of boiling and wrote in the form of a multimedia diary about his experience. This extraordinary piece of sports journalism was now awarded with the first prize of the Association of German Sports Journalists (VDS) in the category „Great Online Price“ (http://www.sportjournalist.de/VDS-Nachrichten/Meldungen/;2104-VDS-Berufswettbewerbe) for the year 2016.
The German Wrestling League congratulates Daniel Meuren on this award!
May many colleagues follow his example and report on our great sport.
