First the emotional triumphant from Edina Müller in front of the eyes of the sonemann, then the fabulous round of Lindy Ave in the Olympic Stadium: At the end, the German team in Tokyo left a positive impression.
But in the total balance of Team D at the 16th Paralympic summer games, these star hours were only beauty corrections. The downtrend continues, the top nations pull it – and with rank twelve there was the worst result ever in medal levels.

The base must clearly enlarge. Currently there is a very strong dependence on the athletics and cycling. At least the team after the weak start in the second week damage limitation.
Paralympics: Goldrackets lit
Some of the gold druggets touted by tribunes, such as double-winer Jana Majunke, Markus Rehm, Martin Schulz, Banner’s owner Natasha Hiltrop, Johannes Floor, or now at the end of Edina Müller lit.
