Olympia: Pechstein and Friedrich carry the German flag

The five-time ice skating olympic champion Claudia Pechstein and Bob-Dominator Francesco Friedrich carry the German flag at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing.

A “huge honor” at her eighth Olympic winter games, an “absolute knitter” before the next gold hunt: Claudia Pechstein and Francesco Friedrich carry the German flag at the opening ceremony in Beijing (Friday, 1:00 pm CET). The five-time ice-fast-running olympic champion from Berlin and the BOB dominator from Oberbänburg received most votes in the vote among athletes and fans. The German Olympic Sports Association (DOSB) announced on Thursday.

“It is a huge honor for me to lead the German team as a flag carrier in the stadium,” said Pechstein: “I won everything in my career, what to win and now as Olympic record participant bear the flag for team Germany allowed, makes me very proud. ” And Friedrich said, “That’s at least equal to the gold medal we can win here.”

For the second time after the summer games in Tokyo 2021, where beach volleyballer Laura Ludwig and Wasserspringer Patrick Hausding had led the German team to the stadium at the opening ceremony, a woman and a man were selected. The German team wants to set a sign for equal rights.

Previously, ten men had at the previous games in the summer and winter since reunification ten men, but only five women led the German team at the opening ceremony. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) had released this opportunity to all teams.

Pechstein, who was here 30 years ago in Albertville, has already gotten its great performance before the start of the competitions. The controversial Berliner is the most successful German winter Olympicine (5x Gold, 2x Silver, 2x Bronze), in China, the old master participates in winter games for the eighth time. It concludes with the sole record holder, the Japanese ski jumper Noriaki Kasai so far. Older was never a participant in winter games.

Pechstein: “A huge honor”

And that’s why it’s probably nothing with another medal. “I’m in the first time under the Olympic motto ‘It’s all’ on the road,” said Pechstein, who already stood on Saturday over 3000 m as well as later in the mass start. All the more she is looking forward to Friday: “A huge honor”.

On the other hand, Friedrich is full of victory in Beijing. After his double victory four years ago in Pyeongchang, the 31-year-old record world champion in China wants to adjust the Olympic record of Andre Lange with four gold medals. On the side of Pechstein to run into the bird’s nest, there should be a thrust again.

“To wear the flag would be an absolute knighthood. That would be really awesome,” he had said in advance to the Munich Mercury and the TZ. For the great appearance, Friedrich also increases logistical hurdles. His neighborhood is in Yanqing, arrival and departure are associated with some effort. The role as a flag carrier is worthy of any additional burden: “To announce the team Germany and march with the flag in the stadium – this is the icing on the cake on every sports career. And a crazy honor.”

Crime against Sweden: DHB

Before the third major round match of the German team was contacted at the European Championship, the DHB informed that the return transport of the persons tested to the Coronavirus in the course of the EM has begun. Leipzig’s playmaker Luca Withe and Magdeburg’s left outside Lukas Martens were the first to follow more professionals soon. The remaining squad was agreed with the first joint training session on opponents Sweden. With Hendrik Wagner, at least an infected professional was able to enter the 16er bid.

The reigning Vice World Champion, who began with five Bundesliga stars around his genius playmaker Jim Gotfridsson (SG Flensburg-Handewitt), caught the better start. The Scandinavians depended on directly at 5: 2, because the DHB defense did not put the necessary presence and hardness on the day.

ShootingS tar Foster continues to play big

At the front ShootingS tar Julian Foster was the great bright spot in the German game, at three of the first four goals was the Gummersbacher Top Talent directly involved. The European champion of 2016 was due in the game, but the Sweden was too much left, so it was only 7: 5 for the favorites after 17 minutes.

The faulty game moved towards a manageable level, which was another tick in Sweden. But everyone else Foster kept Germany with actions like his back grenade after 24 minutes in the game (8:10). This increased Fabian Wide, who shortened shortly before the side change. So it went only with two goals behind the break (10:12).

With the side change, Sweden’s Norwegian national coach Glenn Sol berg built on his second row in the back of the back, which could not really convince. With a cheeky seven meters, Tobias Eichmann even set at 13:13 in the 37th minute, the German fans had long since the upper hand.

Drug comes to operating temperature

Before breaking the final quarter, both teams fell slightly in hustle and bustle and closed some too opponents and unclean. Sweden, in the episode, mainly found a suitable gap (later Man of the Match ) and again a suitable gap, but at the DHB team Paul Drug took operating temperature (17:18, 47.). It was a real thriller now.

Gílson remained faithful to his line and rotated further. But so slowly, strength and concentration, Germany conceded Germany in the 53rd minute the 18:21, shortly thereafter Sweden built the lead even on four goals. Through the 21: 25 defeat, the DHB selection has definitely missed the EM semifinals, which had never been issued as a destination according to Gílson anyway.

At the end of the main round, the German team meets on Tuesday (18 o’clock, live! BEI DHB informed) on Russia, the Poland on Sunday in the closing second with a hit almost from the centerline just buttoned a point. In Scandinavia duel between Sweden and Norway then decides from 20.30 clock, who is expected to follow the Spaniards into the semi-final.
