With temperatures above 30 degrees, cooling down and enough to drink were provided on Day 4 during the sports competitions. And yet there were some particularly hot moments that made the fans' hearts of our athletes beat faster.
The surprises were a total success and the athletes were thrilled: While the competitions were in full swing, prominent guests visited us in Olympiapark.
First, the entire professional team of Hertha BSC walked across the Maifeld together with club manager Fredi Bobic. The players took a lot of time for the enthusiastic athletes, some of whom forgot at short notice that they were actually supposed to be playing a final.
Bobic stayed even longer and handed out the medals at the football award ceremonies, which made for beaming faces.
But that was by no means all: A little later, Philipp Lahm, ex German national team player and member of the World Games Committee, and Célia Šašić, two-time European football champion and DFB Vice President for Diversity and Diversity, also visited us.
Both were thrilled by the atmosphere in Olympiapark and attended several sports events.
Not only beach volleyball pros Nils Ehlers and Clemens Wickler, but also BR Volleys player Ruben Schott were at the finals in Unified beach volleyball and the subsequent award ceremony.
We are very happy that the achievements of our athletes are also appreciated by prominent people. Because even today - especially in this heat - there was fenomenal sweating, cheering and winning.
