For the last time, the University Sports Show of the RWTH University Sports Center (HSZ) impressed all the audience and participants in the old Königshügel sports hall. In addition to unique athletic performances and a fascinating opening show, athletes were honored for their extraordinary achievements in their sports.


At a spectacular final show in the current Königshügelhalle, all the audience and participants celebrated university sports. The BigBand "Full House" of the FH Aachen provided a unique atmosphere. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Rüdiger, Rector of RWTH Aachen, and Prof. Dr. Bernd P. Pietschmann, Rector of FH Aachen, were enthusiastic about the show and the sporting performances. The opening show choreographed by Shahin Sadatolhosseini was one of a kind. He processed his impressions from his rhönrad trip to Iran with the help of musical accompaniment by the Iranian singer Sanaz during the performance. Values such as diversity, democracy and openness made a special statement here.

The "Ehrenamtspreis der Sparkasse Aachen" was awarded this year to Carsten Schlotterhose. He stood out for his extraordinary commitment to his sport of table tennis.

The "Top Sports Award of Aachen University Sports powered by STAWAG" rewards outstanding achievements in the field of sports. The award winners were Philipp Pabst and Sven Farwig. They were highly successful in their sport Bridge.

The last University Sports Show in the old Königshügel sports hall marks the end of an era. Peter Lynen and the HSZ look positively into the future. We are still planning a great program and providing as much structure as possible. The new hall would look and be equipped even more modern as a result.
