SPORTSMANSHIP VIDEO: SWIMMER, 9, WINS FIRST PLACE BUT GIVES TROPHY TO HOSPITALIZED RIVAL

December 18, 2013 / by Admin

JUPITER, Fla. – One of Florida’s best young swimmers earned a first-place trophy at a recent meet — and gave it to his rival.

Nine-year-old Joshua Zuchowski competed Dec. 7 with the Jupiter Dragons at the Santa Claus & Holiday Spring Invitational in West Palm Beach.

He won first place, but he gave the trophy to 10-year-old Reese Branzell, who swims with the Lake Lytal Lightning. Reese is another top swimmer in the state, but he’s been ill with a bone infection for weeks.

Reese tells ABC affiliate WPBF-TV Josh sent him his trophy with a note reading: “I won this trophy for you today, and I hope to see you back in the pool.”

Josh says he felt sorry for Reese, and that he was trying to be a good sport.
