On 8 January, a group of 16 PhD researchers went to see the International Bobsleigh World Cup competition, which happened to be a fun day-trip in Altenberg. The group, accompanied by our volunteer Therése , proved neither to be afraid of the cold, nor of radical sports in the snow.
One of the researchers, Sujay, kindly wrote a short commentary on the event, which we would like to share with you all:
‘The group saw the competition live and cheered when Johannes Lochner of Germany celebrated his first World Cup Victory in the four-man bobsleigh world cup. A mild snowfall kept the mood intact. In the afternoon, the group went to try their hands on sleigh riding. The researchers enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon of sleigh riding, who pledged to come back to the venue in the near future and get more fun out of the similar winter sports activities.
Keep doing the awesome work. On behalf of the whole group, I would like to say, we had a lot of fun.’
The Welcome Center team thanks you all for your participation and engagement! We hope to continue the amazing work with you throughout this winter and beyond!
