CBS will air the 2019 Musial Awards ceremony as a one-hour TV special on CBS nationally this Saturday, December 21 at 2 p.m. One of the recipients is CVA wrestler Marek Bush. There will be encore airings on CBS Sports Network on Monday, Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 11 a.m.
Marek and his parents Bob and Julie traveled to St. Louis for the Nov. 23 event. Named for baseball hall-of-famer Stan Musial, the Musial Awards honor the year’s greatest moments of sportsmanship and the biggest names in sports who embody class and character. This year’s ceremony featured Olympic gold-medal gymnasts Bart Conner and his wife Nadia Comaneci who received the Stan Musial Lifetime Achievement Award.
Marek’s story had already made national news, in part, due a a feature by Steve Hartman which aired on CBS News. With Marek trailing in a match, his opponent became injured. Marek refused to capitalize on the injury and allowed the opponent to win.
