Wiesbaden celebrates the German Sports
On Saturday evening it was time again, the German Sporthilfe invited to the ball of the sport in 2018 to Wiesbaden. A unique gala night in the sponsors of sport, business partners, athletes
, Media and government officials come together to celebrate the achievements of all athletes. As in previous years, Wiesbaden was the city that created a festive setting.
In an interview with the Minister of the Interior
Before the big sports staging, where all the spectators waited, I had a stage appearance with the Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière next to the walk over the red carpet with Lucia. With his support and that of the government, the German sports reform should continue to progress positively in financial terms as well, we are curious. Also, the European Championship 2018 and its stars should act as a beacon of German sports and attract thousands of spectators to Berlin. In the interview, I underlined the special importance of a home championship for every athlete – pure anticipation.
Athletics and the Ball des Sports 2018
A special highlight was a breathtaking staging of athletics. After 2 days of rehearsals with star koreographer Marvin A. Smith, all moves and sequences were done and we were ready to rock the ball of the sport. It’s best to watch the video of the German Sports Aid and enjoy the pictures that will make you want to Berlin 2018!
Together with Julian Weber and Andreas Hofmann we were able to transport the dynamism, aesthetics and power of the javelin throw into the ballroom.
