Olympia in Germany? DOSB wants to give new application “on the way”
After the “functional” play in Beijing, the German Olympic Sports Association (DOSB) is looking forward to the Olympic Return to Europe and offers a new one’s own application.
“It’s time, reasonable, slow and carefully approaching, as we get an application back on the way,” Dosb President Thomas Weikert on Saturday in Beijing: “Maybe 2030 is too early, but then everything is open.”
After the failure of a total of six German applications for the games since 1992, he has experienced a lot of support from other countries in China in his talks in the last two weeks in China, said the new bidding chief. “Everyone is glad that we celebrate a comeback internationally,” Weikert said, “It’s certainly realistic to apply. Of course, we have to do our homework. This includes providing sustainable games. But that’s all that all belongs to that pulling a strand, population, politics and business. “
Weikert hopes for a more positive mood in Germany, because the International Olympic Committee (IOC) with Agenda 2020 “has considerably changed its conception of Olympia and” human rights and sustainability “played a greater role.
Therefore, after winter games 2014 in Sochi and 2018 in Pyeongchang, the DOSB welcomes the return to Europe. “We are looking forward to the fact that the Olympics are now standing in front of a taste and return to the Alpine room,” said Chef de Mission Dirk Schimmelpfennig with a view of Milan-Cortina 2026: “We wish you to return the games without pandemic restrictions we love. ” Weikert, who talked about “functional games” in Beijing with “collateral damage, which is concerned with the human rights situation,” said, “The future of Olympic games looks hopelessly, as they have now been awarded in Democratic Countries.”
DOSB pulls positive Olympic conclusion
The delegation performance of the German OlympiaTeam has drawn a positive sports balance shortly before the end of the winter games in Beijing. The team was “very well presented and taken care of for a lot of enthusiasm in sports Germany,” said Chef de Mission Dirk Schimmelpfennig on Saturday: “We have achieved a good result.”
The goal of finishing “in a corridor between games in Sochi 2014 and Pyeongchang 2018 will be achieved,” said mold. This also applies to the second goal, “to the best three winter sports nations also belong to these games”. After 98 out of 109 competitions, the German team was on Saturday afternoon local time with ten times gold, seven times silver and five times bronze behind Norway and in front of the US in the second place of the medal mirror.
However, mold clearly noted that only two associations had provided for precious metal: the BOB and Sleigh Association BSD, which won 55 percent of previous German medals, and the German Ski Association (DSV) with 45 percent.
“In Pyeongchang, we had the medals distributed on five associations,” he said, this time snowboard, ice hockey and figure skating went out empty. Other associations have been “a bit far from the world’s top” four years ago. “You have to look at in view of the upcoming games, which belongs to the overall picture of this balance”, stressed molds: “But overall we can be very satisfied.”
