An eventful and special year 2020 is coming to an end. For this reason, we would like to review the past university sports year with a small picture gallery.
Jahresrückblick 20 DHM Leichtathletik Halle
The German University Championships in Indoor Athletics took place in February. This was an extremely successful competition for the RUB students, with 6 medals won. Unfortunately, due to the Corona pandemic, all other university sports events for 2020 had to be cancelled.
Jahresrückblick 20 ENAS Sitzung
In mid-February, we were still allowed to gather in groups: Vice-Rector Prof. Kornelia Freitag (back row, 4th from right) is pleased that University Sports hosted a board meeting of the European Network of Academic Sports Services (ENAS). Colleagues from six countries discussed and decided on strategic and political activities for the coming years.

Jahresrückblick 20 Unifit
Corona-compliant welcome rituals at Unifit: High Five became Low Feet. Despite a reduced number of training stations and special booking modalities, the irons were pumped at Unifit.

Jahresrückblick 20 Yoga Outdoor
Whether it was drizzle, wind or cooler summer days, the artificial turf was used this year for relaxing strengthening in Pilates/Yoga, swinging the hips in Zumba/Salsa and getting some serious power in circuit training.
Jahresrückblick 20 Bochum Lied
The university sports team also took on "non-sporty" challenges: In the song "Bochum" (Herbert Grönemeyer), which was created especially for the digital summer festival with the participation of many RUB institutions and personalities, the university sports team turned Unifit into a recording studio without further ado and - of course - sang about the "Doppelpass" (one-two). You can find the link to the full video under the picture gallery.
Jahresrückblick 20 Wicke
After two years of successful cooperation with VW Wicke (here: archive photo from 2017), we are pleased to have extended the contract for another two years. This way, university sports receives important support in times of crisis, which directly benefits course participants and competitive athletes. Thank you!
Jahresrückblick 20 Universiade 2025
In a joint press release of 28 September, the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia and the federal government pledged their support for the application of the German University Sports Association (adh) for the 2025 Summer Universiade. This means that there is a very high probability that the largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games will be held in the Rhine-Ruhr region in the summer of 2025.
Jahresrückblick 20 Rudern
In October, a total of 6 RUB students won medals at the European Rowing Championships in the Polish city of Poznan. Johannes Weißenfeld, Jakob Schneider, Malte Jakschik and cox Martin Sauer won gold in the men's eight. In addition, Larina Hillemann (coxswain of the women's eight) and Cosima Clotten in the women's lightweight double four each won silver medals.
Jahresrückblick 20 Onlinekurse
The first University Sports live online offers started at the beginning of November. While at the beginning there was one course per day, you can now book up to 4 different courses per day. You can register for the online offers at any time via the link below.
Jahresrückblick 20 Spitzensportstipendium
Within the framework of the Deutschlandstipendium, 24 top-class athletes received a top-class sports scholarship in November. They will receive 300 € per month for one year, which should make it easier for them to combine their studies and competitive sport.
Jahresrückblick 20 Ausblick
Unfortunately, this is what Unifit looked like for most of the year. But our eyes are now on the future. If we want to fill this picture with life again next year, we already know that we need reinforcements in the team early on. That's why below you'll find the link to a job advertisement for Unifit receptionists. We look forward to receiving your application!
