Wortathleten: Pamela Dutkiewicz – Der Kampf mit meinem Körper

This article, written by 100m Hurdles World Championship bronze-medalist Pamely Dutkiewicz, is quintessentially what the Wortathleten plaform is all about: An athlete sharing a story that is close to her/his heart. The story has been picked up by numerous newspapers and other media outlets nationwide (and has even been translated for foreign platforms) and is a first major step in putting Wortathleten on the map.

In addition, the weekend also featured the #SHUTUPANDPLAY Dunking World Championship 2016!

Thank you to all the teams, volunteers, crew members and spectators for making the ING-DiBa #SHUTUPANDPLAY 2016 a weekend to remember.
