Pluskota is only fit for the finale

Pluskota is only fit for the finale

When Maurice Pluskota had himself photographed with some teammates wearing a mouth guard against the Mers virus before the Universiade in South Korea, the Lions basketball player had no idea that a "plague" would actually strike him down.

"There was a nasty atmosphere after the game. Everyone was so sad and dejected."
Maurice Pluskota on the moments after losing the Universiade final.

Fortunately, it was not a nasty virus, but only a summer flu that the A-2 national player had caught. But the man from Braunschweig was not able to play as energetically as planned in the biggest success of a German Universiade team so far, the silver medal win in Gwangju.

Basketball lions terminate schroder discoverer liviu calin

Basketball lions terminate schroder discoverer liviu calin

This dispute comes as a surprise – all the more so in its vehemence. The Braunschweig Basketball Lions have celebrated their co-coach Liviu Calin's 15. September canceled. The discoverer and trainer of NBA stars Dennis Schroder and Daniel Theis is fighting back in court. Yesterday, a conciliation hearing was held at the Braunschweig Labor Court, the first step in proceedings to protect against dismissal.

But the meeting, chaired by the chairman of the 7. Chamber, Judge Patrick Poltorak, was already finished after two minutes. Both parties – Managing Director Sebastian Schmidt as a representative of the Lions and Liviu Calin along with their lawyers were present – did not want to say anything in the public meeting, will comment in writing in the course of the proceedings. The judge read out only this much: Calin justified his action against the termination with the fact that, among other things, there was no approval from the Lowen Supervisory Board, and in addition, the notice period had not been observed.

Judge Poltorak then set a chamber date for the end of the year. Until then, both parties can still reach an out-of-court agreement at any time.

View of the center of the region

View of the center of the region

This city is the upper center of the region, but what is an upper center if it is not convincing? In this respect, the people of the city and the region vote with their heads, with their hearts and with their feet – and Brunswick can definitely chalk up the result as a plus.

These texts give a small impression – Living and working in Braunschweig. We show what belongs to life: housing, education, culture, leisure, sport. And also how this is being worked out – with an environment for business, higher education and research that can be seen, but also needs to be constantly supplemented and improved.

The result is a snapshot of a special city, which grows and attracts. This results in challenges that also need to be addressed. It goes without saying that enjoyment, pleasure and shopping should not be neglected in the process. But anyone who so confidently attracts people must also take responsibility and develop new ideas – for sustainability, justice, the protection of the environment and sources.

Why olympia must happen from the perspective of these debutants

Why olympia must happen from the perspective of these debutants

If the Olympic Village didn't already offer good prospects because of its excellent location, one could also come to the conclusion that the German field hockey players have settled in quite well for the coming weeks.

The huge buildings in Tokyo Bay, one of which is dominated by black and red flags on the balconies, do not necessarily promise individuality and seclusion. But to soak up at least the last bit of five-ring flair between serious preparation for the competitions and strict Corona protections like the morning spit tests, the players take advantage of small bike trips within the village to the waterfront. "In the meantime, the anticipation is there," says Benedikt Furk.

The field hockey player from Uhlenhorst Mulheim, like the other German Olympia-Participants also often heard sayings such as: "Olympics must be canceled" or "The worries fly with you to Tokyo" and "In a pandemic, Olympics is irresponsible".
