This year’s Athletik-Konferenz ATK will take place on September 1-3 in Hennef, Germany. In recent years, the ATK has become one of the most important cross-sport events and contact platform for competitive sport. Expertise, innovative approaches, methodological developments and technologies can be found on spot for a closer look and testing.

Two special highlights are the presentations on monitoring: “Workloads and Injury” by Tim Gabbett, who unites scientific expertise with applicable solutions for the field with a special interest in football. Second in line is the talk of Johannes Egelseer, the athletics coach of German Ice Hockey Federation and Fischtown Pinguins, on “Athletics Training and Monitoring in the German Ice Hockey Federation: Challenges and Implementation of Effective Preparations for the Home World Cup 2017.”

Firstbeat’s expert Christoph Rottensteiner will be at the event to introduce you to Firstbeat Sports, a complete solution to optimize training load and recovery.
