The Olympic sailing competitions in Kiel decisively advanced the city in Kiel, according to Mayor Ulf Kämpfer. "They were a milestone in city history," said the SPD politician of the German Press Agency. "In a way, the event has completed the post -war period in Kiel - Olympia gave the city to a real modernization boost." Kiel has become a modern city. The sailing competitions for the Summer Olympics in Munich took place from Kiel from August 29 to September 8, 1972. Since Saturday, the city has been reminiscent of the major event with a colorful program until September 8th.

The Schleswig-Holstein capital had only received a direct freeway connection in 1972, a new high bridge over the North Ostsee Canal and an internationally competitive sports center in Schilksee. There were also striking changes in the city center. "Up to a modern sewage treatment plant, the city is full of infrastructure that was created with a view of the Olympics, accelerated or financed," said fighters. Kiel also grew vigorously in the awareness and also further expanded his reputation as a sailing capital. "Many modernization processes have been significantly accelerated by the Olympics."

Neither Moscow nor Kyiv can control Ukraine's skies. These are the jets they're using to fight the air war.

  Neither Moscow nor Kyiv can control Ukraine's skies. These are the jets they're using to fight the air war. As of late July, observers have identified 36 Russian aircraft and 35 Ukrainian aircraft as lost, but the totals for both sides are likely higher.Throughout the buildup to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, NATO countries, including the US, insisted they would not send troops to the region amid concern that the presence of their personnel on the ground would lead to a dangerous escalation of the conflict.

The mentality of the Kielers also developed away from the feeling of being just a shipyard and a city destroyed by the war, said fighters. The city had increasingly understood itself as very cosmopolitan. "The picture of Kiel has become much more multifaceted and more international, also through its universities."

Whether an Olympic edition is conceivable? "At some point there will certainly be a German application again," said fighters. "And then Kiel has to be ready again." If Hamburg had decided in 2015 for 2024 Olympics, the sailing competitions would have taken place again in Kiel. In the event of a new application, however, the topic of sustainability must play an outstanding role, said fighters.
