Silver and two bronze medals

silver and two bronze medals

At the german open with 554 kickboxers from seven countries it meant a hard work for all fighters of the taekwon-do department pommersfelden to reach a podium position. Especially for mallika maliwan, who competed in an international tournament again after a long time. She fought her way through to the semifinals, but then had to admit clear defeat to ella boro. But mallika maliwan was very satisfied with third place, even though she knows that she still has a lot of training ahead of her if she is to make it to the top again internationally.
David herzog competed in both the seniors and the juniors – the latter mainly in order to qualify for the junior national squad – and took it in his stride that he had to fight many energy-sapping fights. First herzog had to fight in the senior category and immediately convinced with a victory over the hessian kevin trebing. After that the pommersfeldener eliminated rozman milos to compete again with timmy sarantouitis, whom he had last faced at the german championships. This time david herzog showed a good performance again, but the revenge for the defeat failed: timmy sarantouitis was in some actions always a tick faster than david herzog and it was clear that he has more fighting experience. Despite the new defeat herzog proved that he has shortened the gap quite a bit and was finally happy about place 3.

The wear and tear is too great

after a short break david herzog had to fight again in the juniors and after a walk-through he had can caya from austria against him. In this fight it went over both rounds full to the point, because can caya inspired by the victory of the first fight now also wanted to kick david herzog literally out of the race. But also the pommersfeldener wanted to reach the semifinals, fought at the limit and was rewarded with the victory.
One round further he met the strong hungarian tuykoti mate. In this fight the two regular rounds were not enough, because mate managed to equalize in the last second. So 60 seconds of extra time had to decide the race. Here, too, both fighters gave their all, but herzog landed the winning punch, which earned him the recognition of the hungarian.
The wear and tear on his strength became noticeable in the final. Against dominik meyer he was only one point behind at the end of the first round. But herzog was too slow in some actions and had to allow points of the opponent in own counters. When herzog got cramps in his left leg, the fight seemed to be over. After a short break he tried everything to make up for the two point deficit, but in the end neither time nor strength was enough to leave the mat as the winner. Herzog, however, had nothing to reproach himself for and was quite satisfied with 2nd place.

Design award for coburg female students

Design award for Coburg female students

The team of sarah luthke, erika schuberth, lisa visintainer, lisa weinfurtner and bianka wilk prevailed against competitors from all over europe. The success of the coburg students is rounded off by another placement "runners-up": with benjamin bartke, michael biebl and paulina mecik. The theme of this year's competition was "hotel design for the staff". The winning quintet flew to london for the awards ceremony and gala dinner at the end of november and were guests of the british competition organizers reardonsmith architects. An unforgettable experience and reward for hard creative work right at the beginning of the winter semester with various night shifts and concentrated idea generation.

The theme of this year's competition was "hotel design for the staff" – so not the design of the usual chocolate sides in the hotel such as guest rooms, reception, lobby or wellness, no, this time it was about the design of the staff area / back of house for the diverse staff in a 5-star hotel.
For the first time, designers are thinking about how people who work in the hotel, as service staff, chambermaids, doorman, concierge, at the front desk, security, administration, etc., should be treated. Provide top performance around the clock to ensure that the guests' stay at the hotel is as pleasant as possible. The positive interaction of an appropriate and supportive interior design in the background with motivated employees behind the scenes of a hotel – that was a real challenge for the students. The prize winners mastered this by designing a floor plan that optimizes all work processes and at the same time creates free space for well-being. In addition to the necessary rooms such as changing rooms, staff restaurant, kitchen, training room and laundry, this floor plan includes other facilities that positively influence communication and working atmosphere. For example, the students planned a recreation lounge, a smoking area, a kindergarten and a fitness room, which fit perfectly into the concept of optimized workflows. Light, acoustics, atmosphere and individual identity-creating ambience describe the design facilities.

The award-winning work impressively demonstrates how much basic preparation and professional teaching support pay off: right at the start of the winter semester, the entire 7. In the second semester of interior design, the students had the opportunity to attend a workshop lasting several days with external professionals from the top design office JOI-design in hamburg, corinna kretschmar-johnk, and the hotel competence center in oberschleibheim, managing director christian peter, and to take an in-depth look at the requirements, conditions and necessities of hotel personnel. Professor rudolf schricker from the interior design program organized the workshops, accompanied the design seminars and facilitated the students' participation in the competition.

Back in october, markus hartsch reported that his players would like to see a change in the coaching position: "the boys want to hear a different approach, just try something different for a change." after six years, this decision was understandable and no problem for the 57-year-old. "I felt really comfortable in hoheim, but I’m also really looking forward to the new task", says hartsch.

What his new task will be is now clear: starting next season, hartsch will coach TSV mainbernheim, which is also based in wurzburg’s kreisklasse 2 (district 2). "I had several offers", says the kitzinger. The reason he chose TSV is "a very simple story: I trained around 15 players from mainbernheim when they were young. The future trainer also knows the rest of the team very well.

For the club, the decisive factor was that hartsch "has been responsible for successful soccer and continuity in the coaching position for many years" stand. This is confirmed by the trainer. "I’m now in my sixth year at hoheim, i was also on the sidelines in altenschonbach for several years." thomas bergner currently coaches TSV, but will leave the club at his own request, according to the statement.

Althausen live and in historical photos

Althausen live and in historical photos

Equipped with flashlights, a group of explorers didn’t let the rain stop them from learning more about this part of munnerstadt during a short evening tour of althausen. The tour took place within the framework of the series "oh! How beautiful is munnerstadt instead of.

With a great deal of knowledge and infectious enthusiasm, joachim may presented the history and culture of his home village. Indeed, the old franconian houses and the remarkable sculptures in the light cone of the flashlights unfolded a special charm. In the darkness, everything seemed a bit mysterious, and by "feeling each other out", guido with the light beams, individual details could be perceived much more intensively than in daylight.

Church organ tuned

The architectural highlight of althausen is undoubtedly the church st. Cyriak, whose rococo interior was restored to its original state during the last renovation. The color scheme with light blue, green, pink and ochre decorative elements in the dominant white may seem unusual to today’s eyes and therefore unharmonious at first, but may was able to convincingly demonstrate that it was a coherent concept by the master builders of the 18th century. Century is all about. As a special treat, may, who works as an organist here, briefly tuned the church organ. This is one of only a few instruments by the famous wurzburg organ builder johann philipp seuffert (1693 to 1780) that is still largely in its original condition and therefore still sounds as it did 250 years ago.

“Bum-bum”-kevin returns home

It all reminds one a bit of the story of tennis pro boris becker. Kevin krawietz from witzmannsberg can now probably understand how boris becker must have felt after his wimbledon victory in 1985.

The french open title winner was honored by the community of ahorn on wednesday evening at the "alte schaferei" received. Many media representatives, but also many friends of kevin krawietz had come together and created a perfect setting for the tribute to the outstanding sporting success. And in the middle of it all: a still beaming kevin krawietz.

"This doesn’t happen every day", father rudi describes the success of his offspring. From the very first match, kevin and his partner andreas mies had always fought and their fan community had always cheered them on. From the first game to the final, rudi krawietz, who had once been a very successful squash player himself, had worn a red t-shirt. Of course it was sweaty and had to be washed in between, rudi revealed with a mischievous smile. "But the father can only be the basis giver", coburg’s third mayor thomas nowak remarked somewhat jokingly.

"I have done some research", says alfred bernhardt and adds: "we are the only organization that has god in its motto." what the catholic parish secretary is referring to is the fire department and its "god’s honor, the neighbor’s defense". It’s warm, it’s saturday, and it’s the final spurt in the national soccer league. Will bayern be champion or dortmund? Many may also be interested in this here in the dorfstrabe. Burning even. But they are still here, and not in front of the television, because of the spirit of camaraderie.

Alfred bernhardt has not yet moved, is not yet in the white robe in which he will perform the blessing of the new vehicle.
