The Greinert Family and the Dietmar Hopp Foundation sponsor and support students who engage in top-level sports. This way, they can reconcile their academic and athletic career.
Due to the additional workload arising from their training schedule, it is particularly challenging for student athletes to pursue their degree. Yet, the experience they gain from sports often enables them to perform extraordinarily well in their academic career.
Top-level student athletes face a massive workload. I want them to have enough time for both sports training and studying. They motivate other people to practice sports as well. I am always happy to see more children and adolescents who abandon their game console and play soccer or practice for track and field competitions instead.
