The World Games Athlete of the Year 2018

Patrick Thomas - Fistball

Patrick Thomas (Germany) is a superstar within the fistball family, but still with both feet on the ground. Patrick won every title in Fistball (2x World Champion, 3x European Champion, 2x World Games Winner) and is known for his outstanding fast strikes which accelerate up to 130 km/h.

In 2017 he was seriously injured in the opening match of The World Games 2017 in Wroclaw. It was not sure if he could ever play fistball again - but just 10 months later, he returned to the fistball pitch. In 2018, he won the European Champions Cup with his club, and led the German national team to the European Championship title.

He came back - and is now stronger than ever!
