Athletics writes unique stories, the German Athletics Association tells them.
A respectful three-way fight, unbridled joy in sports, the fight against oneself and against the clock. Everything with a fair attitude and fair means. Variety from sprinting through running to jumping, throwing
and shot putting: all this is athletics. And every athlete has his own personal and unique story. With the new initiative #TrueAthletes the German Athletics Federation (DLV) wants to bring these personalities and stories even further into the public eye.
In expressive pictures and emotional video clips, on posters, flyers and in texts, ten selected #TrueAthletes will tell their stories in the coming weeks. From the children’s athlete to the Masters world record holder. From the recreational runner to the Olympic champion. Because athletics is diversity. And #TrueAthletes are all athletes who fight for their personal goals with fair means.
