He was denied a start at the Olympics.

Since his international debut in 2009, the jumper with a right lower leg amputee has been unbeaten at high points. He was three times Paralympic winner including relay races, won seven World Championship and six European Championship titles. With 8.48 meters he holds the world record, in 2016 he was the German flag bearer at the Paralympics. In 2014 Rehm caused a sensation when he became German long jump champion in the competition for non-disabled people. A start at the Olympics after the model of Oscar Pistorius was denied him despite intensive efforts.

In addition to Rehm, Schönfelder and Kappel, Martin Fleig (para Nordic skiing), Johannes Floors (para athletics), Georg Kreiter (para alpine skiing), Thomas Schmidberger and Jochen Wollmert (both para table tennis) were nominated. Previously, the former mono-skier Anna Schaffelhuber had been voted "Sportswoman of the Decade", while the short shot putter Mathias Mester had received the special "Special Achievement 2020" award for his media activities in the Corona crisis. The "Team of the Decade" will be announced on Saturday.
