cow for tennis player

The legendary Roger Federer was lucky twice with prizes.

The fact is that the organizers of the tournament in Swiss Gstaad back in 2003 gave the former first racket in the world a cow! Pet Federer named Juliet and promised to take care of her. The cow stayed to live in the vicinity of Gstaad. Ten years later, the tennis player announced Juliet’s death.

But the eminent champion did not have to be upset for long. The organizers of the same tournament in the homeland of the Swiss again presented Roger Federer with a cow. The gift was made as a thank you for the decision to play in the tournament for the first time since 2004. The second cow was named Desiree.

Piglet for a footballer

In 2020, the famous Ronaldinho was behind bars due to entering the territory of Paraguay with false documents. But in prison, Ron did not waste time in vain and became the winner of the football tournament. In addition to the cup, the Brazilian and his team received another trophy: a 16-kilogram pig.

Lobster for a racing driver

If you really like seafood then you should go for American car racing. There, the winner of the NASCAR race receives not just anyone, but a live, heavy lobster! A crustacean weighing about 10 kilograms is caught in Canada.

After the solemn delivery of the trophy, it is immediately sent to a restaurant, where they prepare a dish for the gala dinner of the champion team.

fish for the skier

It seems that the most creative organizers have come together in cross-country skiing. At the Toppidrettsveka Roller Ski Festival for sure! Swedish skier Astrid Slinn received ten kilos of salmon from sponsors for leading the cut in the first sprint. Nice catch on the ski slope!

footballer chicken

In Polish football, the Man of the Match award was raised in a very original way. The leadership of the local club “Gurnik” presented a particularly distinguished football player with a live chicken. To prevent the bird from escaping, it was placed in a cage. I wonder what happened to her afterwards.

Yogurt and bread for a footballer

In Uganda, even in football, there is not a lot of money, as well as big contracts with product sponsors. But there is food. Thus, the best player in one of the national championship matches received a bottle of yoghurt and a loaf as a prize. And what, nothing worse than some lobsters. Maybe even tastier!

Milk for racing drivers

Champion riders usually open champagne on the podium. But not always. They drink regular milk at the Indianapolis 500!

It is sourced from local farmers and served in glass bottles engraved with the names of the team owner, crew chief and the winning driver. This tradition has its origins in the runner Louis Meyer, who in the 1930s, on the advice of his mother, drank milk to cool down.

Beer for footballers

For winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, the Spanish team received a beer from the team’s sponsor. The fact is that the Sevillian brewery promised before the start of the World Cup that it would give each Furia Roja player exactly the amount of beer it weighs.

Then the most curious considered that the prize volume before the start of the tournament should have been 1686 liters. But the team was sent until 1734!

Cheese for skiers and athletes

Tour de Ski winner Johannes Klebo received a sponsor cheese for winning the tournament. It is true that the Norwegian skier has an intolerance to milk. The prize had to be distributed among family, friends and teammates.

The same award was accepted by the Russian hurdler Sergey Shubenkov, who became the winner of the Diamond League stage of athletics.

“We work for food. No joke, this is a three kilogram prize for first place in Lausanne,” Shubenkov wrote on social media.

Chocolate for a skater

Never tell those with a sweet tooth that for winning the Olympic figure skating tournament in Salt Lake City, Russian Alexei Yagudin, in addition to the gold medal, also received a voucher for 100 kilograms of dark chocolate!

But the figure skater did not turn out to be “in chocolate.” “Then my mother took 10 kilograms, and then the contract with the chocolate factory was terminated and, in fact, ten kilograms caught up with us,” the champion recalled.
