Thank you very much @SteemSports! I am very honored to have been selected for the second step in the contest. Thank you for the opportunity to share what sports mean to me!

Please read my post and vote for it if you like it!

Personally I have to give it to this guy, ever since I've started Steemit, I have not seen someone who works so tirelessly to help give back to the community in the way that he has, we both have been working to build on our communities slowly and I met him along the way. very much deserves it, the effort that goes into each post is unreal and it's deservant of greater exposure. See you at the top buddy!

P.S. I request you all to vote this fella and read his work. Not degrading anyone else what people give the community is amazing I just think he edges it.


thank you really very much didn't expect such a nice voting comment!

we'll be at 70 rep this year ;) !

great work!

I would like to vote for @uwelang!

And besides, he is doing a lot in favor of the Steemit community, especially the German one.

Ok guys! @fingersik announces that his Steemit friends are rather scarce and that he would be most honoured if even those that don’t know him would spend their 5 minutes to read his article:) peace!

great reply buddy, good luck

praise from the competitor is more than welcome:P :)

I vote for @costopher, League of Legends is the best!

Me too! @costopher is a nice diversion from 'real' sports. Mind is what counts too!

Hello @steemsports, Zagreb is calling... 🙂
And my vote 👍 goes to... Simple German Guy - @uwelang

Yaaay! @irime here. I'm so happy to have made it into the Top 20, thank you guys.

Being rather new to Steemit I have just a handful of dedicated Steemians following me, so I would like to invite those who read this message to take a look and cast their vote if they like my entry - it's about martial arts!


Cheers! I am off to take a look at the other finalists...

I vote for @casparleuzinger!

I vote for @costopher

I vote for this old dude @uwelang ! He might be older than Gandalf the grey! ;)

I will be lookin forward to the next one :)

Just finished reading all of the posts and put my vote in for @irime
It was tough, I loved the pieces about social media ties in the bundesliga, the passion for ultimate, esports as a legitimate sport and the coaching aspect of sports. I'm don't practice martial arts, but somehow this post about how practicing your sport by bringing your body and mind into a singular focus and pushing out all of the 'noise' the world throws at us, sold me on this post.
Also, thanks for putting this contest out there guys (and gals). I really enjoyed a lot of the posts it created!

@swansed Thank you so much for taking the time to read! More than your (very appreciated!) vote, I am grateful that you found something meaningful in the post I wrote, a little aspect of my experience that you could connect with. I think this is what makes Steemit a great community. Greetings from Berlin :-)

Hey all. Would like to put in a plug for myself, @doggedfi!

You can check out my article about beginning to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu here! Please consider placing a vote for me if you enjoy the article! 😄

I vote for the amazing @irime!

I vote for @doggedfi

My vote goes to @irime

I vote for @doggedfi

Beginning My Jiu-Jitsu Journey

only because he's the best

I think @doggedfi deserves to win because he kicks ass.

I vote for @irime 's homage to martial arts and her view on how it becomes a partnership with your opponent upon continuous praxis.

Let's go @wickedcute!

Hey guys!
It's so awesome to have been included in the Top 20! It's an honour, thank you very much!

I hope you win, dear beer buddy @costopher! @steempub-trail could support you too!

Great stuff, you did not spell my profile name correct, it is @uwelang

I have messaged our staff and will have that changed shortly! Remember to spread the word! Best of luck!

Thanks for the help buddy, spreading it when name is correct :-) - the link works at least

It's fixed - thank you for spotting that. :)

Cheers - mentioned earlier already - just in order to play fair - another user there was also a little typo in the name @casparleuzinger - you missed an "s".

thanks @uwelang for your help! really appreciate it :)

All good mate - good luck

We've made the correction! Goodluck and thanks for participating!

Thanks a lot! In order to be fair - another user there was also a little typo in the name @casparleuzinger - you missed an "s".

I support you entry, buddy @uwelang! Hope you win! If the payout of comment counts, say and I'll up it!

Thanks a lot! I think you just need to comment with the steemit account name of the one you support and they count the mentions

If you have ever rooted for a guy to suffer a minor injury because you did't really want him to be seriously injured but you just wanted him off of:

  • your team
  • your arch rival's team
  • just your television in general

Then you should vote for @theregularguy.

Here's the post.
