Olympians – Role Models, according to the results of University research

“85.6 per cent of the population in Germany agrees with the statement that German athletes play an exemplary role in terms of performance.” At the same time, the value of German athletes is still very high: “81.3 per cent of Germans have confidence in the fact that German athletes act morally, respect the rules, fair play and incorruptibility,” the study says. For international athletes this figure is only 39.3 percent.

This is the result of a study by Deutsche Sporthilfe and the Deutsche Sporthochschule in Cologne on the acceptance of top sport in Germany – published by the German NOC website. Deutsche Sporthilfe currently supports some 3,800 successful and hopeful up-and-coming and top athletes from over 50 different disciplines; the Deutsche Sporthochschule is the largest sport university in Europe.
