- Alhambra Nievas Rugby Referee
- Sarah Seiber Taekwondo Referee
- Aimee Barret-Theron Rugby Referee
These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 35 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.
The 3rd Star this week goes to Aimee Barrett-Theron, Rugby Referee. A former star player, Barrett-Theron has taken her career as a referee to incredible heights in a short period of time. Elite level rugby referees are some of the very best sports officials in the world and the rise of Aimee Barrett-Theron to their ranks so quickly is something worth noticing. Here, she talks about her Women’s World Cup experience and the honour of calling the opening game. For showing the professional players of the world ‘How to Do it Right’, Aimee Barrett-Theron is 3rd Star.

Sarah Seiber is a Taekwondo Referee who is following in the footsteps of her Dad. When I am looking for posts to share I am always hunting for real life stories about real people who can give some inspiration and motivation to the sports officials, and anyone else, who might be following along. This article is about a young lady who is having fun, doing what she loves, with the people she loves. It is a ‘Family’ article and I smiled the whole way through so I put it on the list for the 3 Stars. For that, Sarah Seiber, Taekwondo Referee, is 2nd Star this week.

Alhambra Nievas is arguably the top sport officials in the world. She is certainly one of the top few referees of any sport, and currently the number one rugby referee on the planet, along with Rasta Rasivhenge. This post shows the type of leadership and friendship that the elite level rugby referees have for each other. In my opinion, it is the main reason that this group, strengthened even more with Aimee Barrett-Theron, is such a well respected team. Nievas is a key ingredient to the mix and the encouragement and positive spirit that she brings to the stadium helps everyone around her. Alhambra Nievas, Rugby Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 35.
