"I would like to present you with the President's Medal for three reasons. Firstly, for the exciting and dramatic game. It was unique! Secondly, for your willpower, endurance and motivation to win even from a bad position. And thirdly, above all, for the sense of unity you gave to our nation. Such moments are rare. Yesterday was such a moment, and you gave it to us!" said the President of Latvia.
