Olympic Javelin Champion Thomas Röhler worries about the young athletes in Germany. "We saw a big slump in organized sport in 2020. And one day we just won't have any top athletes," said the 29-year-old in an interview with the news portal t-online.de.
Alfons Hörmann, President of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), also warns: "It is frightening what is becoming evident in the children's and youth sector." There are "currently almost no new members in the clubs", and many would also resign. "Hopeful young athletes will be lost to us. Entire years will go into the future significantly weakened," said Hörmann.
Röhler finds it "relatively difficult" that top athletes are allowed to train in contrast to others during the corona pandemic. The athletes are "quiet, you see less of the athletes than usual because we appreciate the situation, but also because we don't want to put salt on the wound," said the 2018 European champion.
