The third day of competition at the National Games was marked by joyful cheering, fan chants and, of course, the dancing at the athletes' disco at Brandenburg Gate.

In kayaking, powerlifting and swimming, the last decisions were made today - and in the best weather. But also in all other sports there was a lot of action.

Even though every centimeter was fought for and everyone gave their best until the very last second, in the end all athletes were happy about the joined experience.
