Alfons Hörmann is doing a farewell tour called “Tacheles,” which includes leaders of various political parties and government officials. He talks about how important sport is for health and exercise.
Andreas Hörmann, Germany’s sports minister, said that sports are “shocking” and complained about how bureaucracy often slows down their mark; he gave Chancellor Angela Merkel a swipe and asked her to be concerned about the lack of success in top-level sports. He also predicted an unsuccessful performance from the summer games held in Tokyo this past winter. Hörmann told the officials to stop interfering with sporting organizations within Germany, or a U.S.-style scandal could ensue. In ten years, he said, German athletes would succeed where the state doesn’t interfere and fail where they take active leadership roles by sabotaging their team.
They would illustrate with an instance that the phrase “a top official” was used to describe a particular event. They would also mention “responding to Hörmann’s assessment” and how much of an impact it could have on history if that list is followed up to eight years under the current leadership of the German Olympic Committee President Reiner Hörmann.
Wolfgang Hörmann, the former President of Baden-Württemberg who is currently on a farewell tour through the country to address public concerns about his legacy, is not just fighting for his past. He has been persistently fighting for the future of German sports for decades. Some candidates, like Christian Wulff, have expressed interest in taking over Hörmann’s legacy.
Two days before the Olympics, an announcement was made on Germany’s public broadcaster. The DOSB begins a massive “re-education” program in light of the recent problems within the organization, leading up to the opening ceremony. However, recent criticism from sporting leaders has strained relations between the DOSB and some high-ranking political figures involved with the sport.
