University sports as a trendsetter

At the top-class Sport-Talk Bochum in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, five university sports players showed themselves to be trendsetters.

Where do trends in sport actually come from and how do they become established? What exactly is a "trend"? How important is integration into existing structures for "urban sports" to receive the necessary support for further development from the DOSB and local politics? In 100 minutes, Mayor Thomas Eiskirch, DOSB Chairman Torsten Burmester, Head of the Funke Mediengruppe sports editorial team Melanie Meyer and IOC member Michael Mronz discussed all these questions under the lively moderation of Anke Feller (WDR). The common goal: to get people of all ages excited about exercise.

The guests were also particularly interested in the interviewees, who play their respective "trend" sports at a high sporting level and gave an authentic impression of the positive and inspiring energy that can be generated. Among them were five who have a university sports background: Vincent Braukämper was one of the first trainers at Unifit and introduced "Calisthenics" together with trainee Osama Alabed Alrahman. Benedikt Zauder established the sport of lacrosse in university sports in 2013 and has made a significant contribution to the professionalization of the sport. this sport will be an Olympic sport in 2028! Sonja Greinacher is a national player in 3x3 basketball and 5x5 basketball and was part of the university sports team that became European university champions. The active trainer Davina Fisseler, a Parcour World Cup participant, completes the quintet.

Conclusion: University sport offers plenty of opportunities for personal development and is definitely a relevant player when it comes to trendsetting!
