What I like about my work

  • I have always been an enthusiastic sportsman and during my studies I got the chance to pass this enthusiasm on to others both as a trainer and as an employee through university sports. Developing university sports in the vibrant atmosphere of the Ruhr-Universität and convincing more and more students and employees of our sports activities is a very exciting task.
