Sports Olympiad Day 1: Swimming

The Opening Ceremony of the 18th Sports Olympiad of German Schools in Southern Africa at the German International School in Johannesburg (DSJ) on 11 March 2023 was just magical:
Great performances, amazing speeches and the team spirit was already buzzing!
Thank you to our DHPS LRC representatives and Olympiad athletes Nico Esslinger and Trisha Mutumbulua for their great words, you made us proud.

The first competitions took place on 12 March 2023 and what a successful day it was for the DHPS swimmers!
Medals for each and every swimmer and so many new records:
  • Our Competition group 3 boys (Robin Engelhard, Nico Esslinger, Max Krafft and Fabian Biederlack) broke the record in 4 x 50m relay
  • Maya Stange broke the 50m breaststroke record (2010, from DHPS alumni Vera Adrian)
