Justin Sexton (left, of Helsinki, Finland) is presented the
Mike Marshall award by Bruce Guettich (center, of Steamboat
Springs, Colorado) and local organizer Yves Archambault.
The Mike Marshall award is given each year in recognition to
an individual who works beyond the call of duty in promoting
and/or competing in footbag sports. It is in memory of Mike
Marshall, the sport's founding visionary and co-inventor of the "hacky sack".
Justin has single-handedly built the Finnish Footbag Association,
a thriving club that brought 10 athletes to this year's event.
