Will the finals be televised?

So very wide. Both ARD and ZDF have reported over 25 hours on their major TV shows as well as over 70 hours in internet streams. “For us sports that have been overshadowed by big football, this is a great interest. Three-time Olympic boat champion from Potsdam we all really enjoy it,” says three-time Olympic boat champion Sebastian Brendel from Potsdam.

What is the importance of tournaments?

A very different one. Canoeers, for example, compete in unusual individual races over a distance of only 160 metres. “Changing the spur to a sprint is really cool,” says Brendel, who is preparing for this year’s world championships with the national team. When it comes to swimming, some athletes travel straight from the world championships in Budapest to Landsberger Allee. The triathlon with Laura Lindemann at the 8th Potsdam Olympics is also part of the German Bundesliga series.In athletics, the international highlights title can be purchased directly with a DM title, even if the criteria are already met.Olympic long jump champion Malaika Mihambo is a superstar “Berlin is kind of a transit station in the direction of the World Cup and the European Championships,” Potsdam discus thrower Kristen Budens, who won the silver medal at the Olympics in Tokyo, says she is looking forward to the “very special atmosphere” at the Olympic stadium.

What next this summer?

From August 11 to 21, Munich will host the European Championships – European Championships in nine different disciplines: track and field, regatta, rowing, cycling, triathlon, gymnastics, table tennis, beach volleyball and climbing.
