Leo Berkman receives the Nick Johnson Award

February 28, 2018

Congratulations to Leo Berkman for being named the PAC Blue Youth Team's recipient of the Nick Johnson Award.
 

The Nick Johnson Inspiration Award, established February 2015, recognizes athletes on a yearly basis that fully embody the vision and values of the Olympic Development Program. The values of the program are based on the Olympic movement, defined as "Olympism."

 

"Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles."

 

The values that are derived from Olympism and translated into ODP are the backbone of why the program exists and what it sets out to pass on to its participants. ODP athletes should have the utmost respect for their opponents, officials, and the game of water polo. ODP athletes should strive to maximize their potential as athletes and as people. Nick Johnson was a shining example of this during his time with us. We hope this award inspires us all to embrace the values of ODP and be a part of the Olympic movement.
