Kenan Sofuoğlu
Wow! A motorcycle riding world champion with real principles. You don't get to see that often.

Kenan Sofuoğlu Open link in a new window became the first ever Turkish world champion Supersport (on a Ten Kate Honda) in 2007. As such, he was entitled to a lot of money from one of the sponsors, a Turkish gambling company. The amount totalled 700,000 Turkish liras (some US$ 470,000). But since the Islam forbids gambling, Kenan, a devote Muslim, refused the money.

The money is going towards charities. Thumb Up Smiley
