The series is designed by the sports division ORF Burgenland for TV, Radio and Internet. From the talented sailing duo – to the avid tennis player or young diver – young local athletes must be rewarded for their hard work and exemplary training.

On the other hand, it is an appreciation from the clubs and federations here in Burgenland.
