«With an Olympic application, it shouldn't just be about taking Olympic Games in Germany. The company and especially the host city really have to feel like it, »said the 28-year-old long jump Olympic champion of the German Press Agency.
Mihambo (28) is one of the main actors of the European Championships from August 11th to 21st in Munich, where Olympic Games took place 50 years ago. It was the last games in Germany. Olympic supporters hope for a new signal through the championships with 177 medal decisions in nine Olympic sports.
Race walker Jemima Montag embodying 'Australian values' as a role model to inspire next generation of athletes
Australian race walker and reigning Commonwealth Games champion, Jemima Montag says she's embracing the pressure of defending her crown at the Birmingham Games, but most of all wants to inspire the next generation of athletes. A medicine student who loves to cook and spend time with family, the 24-year-old also talks of superstitions; like the lucky number three, her lucky pyjamas, and a lucky golden bracelet she wears from her late grandmother.
Mihambo: "It is about the Olympic idea"
"It has to be about participating in the Olympic idea and wanting to spread them: Living tolerance, learning together and learning together and holding on to each other. It must be in the foreground that such things are placed more in society and that the Olympic Games are also lived from the values - otherwise it would not be desirable for me, »said Mihambo.
seven times German applications have been unsuccessful since 1986, also because the citizens were against it - for example, when trying to make the winter games for 2022 with Munich and for the summer games for 2024 with Hamburg. The last attempt at the Rhein-Ruhr initiative for 2032 also failed. The coming summer games will take place in Paris, 2028 in Los Angeles and 2032 in Brisbane in 2028. The next winter host are 2026 Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo.
After the disappointing World Championships, the German Athletics team is aiming for a double-digit European Championship medal result from August 15 to 21. «It is definitely nice to come to such a place and to see that this sports facility is still actively used. And it's nice to know the story of this place. But ultimately, for us athletes this year is about writing our own and new stories. The anticipation of this is great, »said world and European champion Mihambo.
