3 Stars 2017 Week 36

  1. Bibiana Steinhaus Football Referee
  2. Jennifer Huggins Boxing Referee
  3. Nigel Owens Rugby Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 36 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.

3rd Star

Nigel Owens is probably one of the most famous referees in the world today. For many years the rugby world has chosen Owens to take charge of its most important matches. His exchanges with players have been legendary. The sport of rugby has a reputation for sportsmanship and honour, at least at the elite levels, and when you see a match with Nigel Owens in the middle, you understand the meaning of the word respect in sport. Most of his focus these days has been on the speaker circuit where he is in huge demand. He speaks to audiences that include everyone from the ‘rich and famous’ to the ‘you and me’. I have never seen him myself, but from what I see in my searches, he is absolutely hilarious. Like this television advert. I thought it was funny. That wins. Nigel Owens, Rugby Referee, is 3rd Star.

2nd Star

Jennifer Huggins is a Boxing Referee, and well known to the Officials101 Twitter audience. Huggins is Canada’s top Boxing Referee, at the moment, and she is a whole lot more. A very successful entrepreneur, with a gym in Toronto, her charity work is also amazing and widespread. The Fight To End Cancer fundraiser that she created and operates has raised millions, but she also does a thousand little things behind the scenes that people don’t see. It is quite inspiring. It is an honour that Huggins takes a moment from her busy schedule and shares her insights with the 101 Twitter feed. This week, she sent us 3 great posts. You can decide which one you like most. I put them all together and Jennifer Huggins, Boxing Referee, is 2nd Star for the week.

1st Star

Bibiana Steinhaus is a #Football #Referee in Germany. She might be the most recognizable of the worlds’ female soccer referees. Steinhaus has been in the middle for a number of high profile international matches in women’s football she is cuurently grabbing more attention for her work in men’s football in Germany. This week, Steinhaus will become the first female referee to ever appear in a Bundesliga match and that is pretty big news. Bibiana Steinhaus, Football Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 35.
