The establishment of Top Team Thuringia will give young athletes from all over Thuringia sporting prospects in their home region. Since Erfurt has the best training and competition facilities – equipped by REGUPOL – it was only natural that cooperation should continue even more closely in the future. Ambassadors of this cooperation are the top sprinter Julian Wagner and his coach Tobias Schneider.
Top Team Thuringia brings together the best athletes in Thuringia in ideal training conditions, under the leadership of the Thuringian Athletics Association. This elite athlete training on REGUPOL continues the great work of the LAC Erfurt Top Team. The goals remain unchanged. All leading Thuringian athletes are to be able to train and perform on a single site. Encouraging the next generation is just as important, and young athletes are to be encouraged to stay in Thuringia rather than go elsewhere. Appropriate sporting and economic conditions have thus been created and improved.
The two most important sports facilities in Erfurt, especially for competitive sports, are the Steigerwaldstadion and the Hartwig-Gauder-Halle (photo). One reason why these two venues are so popular is because they are equipped with fast REGUPOL running tracks. REGUPOL is a third-generation family company based in Bad Berleburg that has installed all kinds of sports surfaces in well over 100 countries since 1954. REGUPOL has been supporting sport in Thuringia for many years and especially the Erfurt Indoor annual athletics meeting in the Hartwig-Gauder-Halle. It is therefore a matter dear to REGUPOL‘s heart to support the ambitions of the new top team Thuringia.
