Tokyo Trophy [Edit]

The Tokyo Trophy was presented in 1964 by the city of Tokyo. It was to be awarded to an athletes (or group of athletes) whose conduct during the Olympic Games or Olympic Winter Games was an example of outstanding sportsmanship. It was only awarded twice. In 1967 it was given to the Swedish brothers Lars Käll and Stig Käll, for their efforts during a Flying Dutchman sailing race at the Tokyo Olympics when they stopped in mid-race to help the Australian crew of John Dawe and Ian Winter, after they had capsized. It was also awarded to Britain’s David Bodington for his sportsmanship during the 1968 Winter Olympics at Grenoble, when, during a speed skating race, his racing partner fell, and Bodington stopped his race to avoid injuring the fallen skater.
