The entire premise of sports is competition, which can sometimes lead to less-than-ideal actions among players. But, it makes the moments of true sportsmanship all the sweeter.
In a video circulating online, a parent is cheering on her daughter, Ava at her soccer game. Ava and the other players are very young and clearly still learning how to play the game, so when she has the ball and is blocked by an opposing player, she has a little bit of a meltdown. Instead of kicking and screaming, Ava simply stands with her head down and cries.
When the little girl from the opposing team, who blocked her, sees Ava crying, she stops what she’s doing to embrace her in the cutest hug ever. Despite the game going on without them, the two stand in an embrace until Ava starts feeling better. Never has there been a more adorable act of sportsmanship.
Watch the heartwarming moment in the video below, and remember to share the story with your friends.
