50.000 fans celebrate an ice hockey festival

Block 2, row 2. As a spectator, you can't get much closer to the playing surface at the ice hockey spectacle in nurnberg's frankenstadion. Uwe-heiko schuller is nevertheless not satisfied with his standing position directly behind the barrier fence: "I thought I could see better from here. At fubball the place is optimal, but today it is nothing." the ice tigers fan from roth is "only" standing 40 meters away from the ice, but the crowd blocks his view of the playing field.

He is nevertheless enthusiastic about the open-air premiere of the german ice hockey league (DEL) in the sold-out fubball temple in france. Just like timo eichardt. The young man from wolframs-eschenbach stands on the other side of the stadium. Another 50 meters further away from the ice than schuller, but about 40 meters higher: block 27, row 27: the last one under the roof. "It's better than being indoors. From up here, I can see everything, even the puck", says eichardt from his seat, which offers an almost bird's-eye view. He, too, is impressed by the spectacle: "A game like this could be played more often."

At six stations, the students got a taste of the sport and learned a lot about basketball. The focus was on dribbling, passing, throwing, basket handling, ball handling and coordination. The leadership was in the hands of the graduate sports economist and youth coordinator sebastian bohnlein, who is on the road with ten young helpers in the schools to inspire the young people for basketball.

Sports teacher gudrun gasiew from the wallburg-realschule emphasizes that the action day is not a one-day event for the sport of basketball. "We have been taking part in the basketball competition "jugend trainiert fur olympia" for a long time. At the schools-league in the district habberge we became first with our team. We were qualified for the franken-first-champion in bamberg and achieved a good second place. In addition, three bundesliga players visited our school last year, providing a lot of information and leaving a special impression."

When dreams become reality

When dreams become reality

It was not so long ago that a friend told me that the witzmannsberger krawietz now sells wienerla at the basketball in the HUK-arena. It was probably not going to be a great career for tennis anymore. And a colleague from the sports department used to like to report on young kevin. For the top it is never enough for the lad anyway. The land of a day under a distant second. Now the former three-case high from the district of ahorn has made it after all!

He showed it to all his critics. And how! 2019, that was his year. The year of KK (not AKK) gave him the breakthrough: winner of the french-open, davis cup for germany, among the top ten doubles players in the world rankings. Bravo kevin!

Christopher haase: daring but not winning

No fewer than 63 teams were on the grid this year, including the audi R8 LMS
with the number 25 car of audi sport team sainteloc with haase, vervisch and winkelhock. Training sessions and qualifying races went well for the trio, with the sainteloc team consistently placing the audi R8 LMS well ahead of the field. In combined qualifying result was fastest audi at all. Markus winkelhock drove the car to seventh place in the decisive qualifying session, which resulted in sixth place on the grid after a competitor was penalized.
The race itself developed better and better for christopher haase and his teammates as it progressed: "we had a bit of bad luck at the beginning with the yellow and safety car phases, but we didn’t let that irritate us and continued to work with concentration.", reports the 30-year-old.
