Welcome to The Beautiful Games

One of the toughest questions you could ask me is: What is your favourite sport? Well, I might come up with Equestrian sports, Biathlon, Rugby, Judo, American Football… But actually, I love (almost) all sports, Olympic and non-Olympic. I love the variety of sports, the different challenges, the many variable skills necessary to practice them. And I love the artistic beauty that lies in all of them.

In my native country, Germany, there is only one sport which dominates all the media and the public interest. At work, usually the only (sports-related) topics are whether anybody could still stop Bayern, whether you support Borussia Dortmund and hate Schalke or vice versa, and whether Bundesliga’s ‘dinosaur’, Hamburger SV, will avoid relegation again this year…

And so, to contradict that, this blog will not focus on one specific sport but feature all of those which nowadays have to be considered as “Randsportarten” (‘fringe sports’) in Germany. And “Randsportarten” means all of them, except Association Football…

I want to share with you my opinions and views on current events and developments, memories from once upon a time, stories you’ve never heard before, and which you probably might not be able to forget so soon. The stories which only sport can write, and which it does write every day, somewhere in the world, from the biggest arenas to the smallest backyards.
