“Athletes need to be a role model in their society and they shall set the example not only for those who come to the sports hall to cheer on them but also for children who need care and love. Their smiles and thank you are worthier than any other title or trophy” Sokolov said.
Sokolov also attended the annual ceremony for the “Athlete of Dupnitsa”; he presented 80 promising athletes and players from his home town with special souvenirs, including those who are playing in the youth divisions of his former Volleyball club. “I am happy to be back in Dupnitsa and will never forget how much I received here” said the opposite who currently plays in Italy for the likes of Diatec TRENTINO.
The Mayor of Dupnitsa, Metodi Chimev, also presented Sokolov with a special award for his career and for making the name of the city well-known across the international Volleyball community.
