Numerous exercise leaders who have been doing this work for the association on a voluntary basis for 25 years or more were also honored. And there’s a training manager who’s been doing the job for over 40 years: christiane rogall. Heidesuse wagner apologized right at the beginning of the event, because not all of those to be honored had obviously received the invitation in time: "next year i will do the invitation myself."
Christiane rogall is still in the gym once a week and leads rhythmic gymnastics for women. "The participants came to me at a young age and it is a great group. On average we are about 20 women and it makes me still incredibly much fun." And one who also wrote a piece of successful soccer history at ATS kulmbach in the 1950s is 79-year-old adolf schroder, who was honored for his 60-year affiliation with the BSLV: "at that time, i already played with karl siemko in the 1st division at the age of 18. Team and we won the north bavarian championship. It was a very good time for me as a young footballer and I was the right wing of our team. At that time we trained three times a week." Adolf schroder still remembers an incident after a promotion game: "an envelope with 20 marks was printed in my hand and i was earning only 29 marks a month as a young pen at the time. That was then a vermogen."
