Top Sprinter recommends REGUPOL running tracks
Crossing the finish line in 10.11 seconds with no wind over the 100 m, sprinter Julian Wagner catapulted himself to first place on the list of the best for the year at the Meeting International in Schifflange in August 2021. Only 6 athletes in Germany were ever faster than the athlete from Top Team Thuringia. He and his teammates train in the German track and field city Erfurt. Here, the best training and competition facilities will be available to them – equipped by REGUPOL. Seen in this light, closer cooperation between the two organizations in future was a logical step. The ambassadors for this link are top sprinter Julian Wagner along with his trainer Tobias Schneider.
Top Team Thüringen
Top Team Thüringen aims to bring together Thuringia’s best athletes under the direction of the Thuringia athletics association and under ideal training conditions. This “talent forge on REGUPOL” continues the great work of the LAC Erfurt Top Team project. The goals remain the same: all Thuringia’s top athletes are to train and compete under one roof. Equal priority is also given to promoting the up-coming generation: promising young athletes are to be encouraged to stay in Thuringia rather than going elsewhere. To make that happen, the sporting and economic framework conditions are also going to be created and improved.
„I love to bring out the best in myself. While training on REGUPOL I polish my skills for upcoming competitions.“
Erfurt’s two most important sports venues, especially for top class sport, are the Steigerwald stadium and the Hartwig-Gauder Hall. One reason why they are so popular is because they are both equipped with the fast REGUPOL running tracks. For years now, REGUPOL has been a keen sponsor of sport in Thuringia, especially the annual “Erfurt Indoor” athletics meeting in the Hartwig-Gauder Hall. That explains why supporting the ambitions of the new “Top Team Thüringen” initiative is matter close to REGUPOL’s heart.
