Sebastian Runge Into the ISA HOF.
Sebastian Runge from Meerbusch was inducted into the International Shuffleboard Hall of Fame. He is the 3rd member of the German Shuffleboard Association to receive this honour. (2016 10 26)
There are a great number of good reasons for this vote. Sebastian Runge was able to finish as best German player in 6 World Championships (2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2014 & 2015). He furthermore is the only the German player to participate in all World Championships since 2006. Additionally, Sebastian received the “Merit-Award” for his outstanding contributions to the sport of Shuffleboard at the World Championship 2007.
Apart from his sporting success, his organizational skills and the strong readiness to help at events of the German Shuffleboard Association have to be highlighted as well. This became particularly apparent in the course of the Inaugural 2008 when International Shufflers from Brasil, Canada and USA spent one week on a trip in Germany and the Netherlands where Sebastian Runge took over the responsibility for the organization of the trip to the Cologne area. Furthermore, he was also strongly involved as part of the Organization Committee of the World Championship 2010 in Germany. In addition to that, his advice and opinion in terms of issues concerning creative design is always highly valued.
The honour and official ceremony took place at the “Hall of Fame Dinner” at the World Championship in Florida. Not only the accompanying members of his family, but also the members of the GSA who will represent Germany at the Team World Championship in the USA, will be able to experience this honour live, and are sure to applaud.
We congratulate Sebastian Runge for the induction into the Shuffleboard Hall of Fame! 2016 10 26
