Colorful Sports Festival at the Königshügel Excites 4,000 Guests!
After three years, the RWTH FH Sports Day finally returned to the Königshügel sports facilities. Students and other sports enthusiasts discovered a lot there. No matter if it was gymnastics on the wheel, windsurfing on the surf simulator, or snowboarding on an artificial snow slope: At the RWTH FH Sports Day, trying out more than 50 different sports was welcome.
One of the highlights of the Sports Day this year was once again the Institute Olympiad. The colorfully dressed teams were made up of students, employees, and professors from various institutes and facilities of the Aachen universities. They competed against and with each other in exciting tournaments. The event focused on sports and fun in equal measure. In the end, the team "Die Spektralstrahlkulären" came out on top. Team "EINtracht HEIZER" could be happy about the honorary prize for the best fans.
In seven tournaments, ranging from cagesoccer to tennis and beach volleyball, the approximately 800 participants gave their all. The winners, who climbed the winners' podium at the end, were delighted to receive prizes from Sparkasse Aachen as partner and title sponsor of the event. This year, the honorary work award of the Sparkasse Aachen went to Lars Tevort. The long-standing chairman for snowboarding distinguished himself through his outstanding commitment to winter sports.
The RWTH FH Sports Day not only offers an insight into the sports program, but also into the sports facilities of the HSZ. The students are excited to finally be able to do sports together again at the Königshügel. The new construction of the Königshügel sports hall is planned for next year; then the university sports will have to find new space. But one thing the Sports Day has clearly shown: After two years of Corona break, the demand for university sports and events remains high.
