IASI 2011: Morning Session Day 3

Leave a comment

The IASI 2011 Workshop concluded this morning in Leipzig. The final session started with a guided tour of the very impressive Institut für Angewandte Trainingswissenschaft (IAT). I was fascinated by the facilities at the Institute and was delighted we were able to see some of the backroom activities of a world famous institute.

After the tour the Workshop attendees met to discuss ways to develop IASI’s work. I acted as a facilitator for the discussion and with all delegates (Germany, China, Japan, Australia, Finland, United Kingdom, Qatar) contributed to a consensus statement about IASI in regard to:

  • The nature of IASI as an organisation
  • What IASI does
  • An action plan for the next two years

The consensus statement will be available for discussion once the Secretariat has had an opportunity to format the document (a one page A4 document). Hartmut Sandner closed the workshop with his thanks to attendees and his colleagues who had helped with the organisation of the Workshop.

The day ended with a visit to the Kanupark Markkleeberger:

Der Kanupark am Markkleeberger See ist die modernste künstliche Wildwasseranlage in Deutschland und eine von fünf Strecken dieser Art weltweit. Hier trainieren die deutsche Kanu-Slalom-Elite und Spitzensportler aus der ganzen Welt sowie Nachwuchstalente aus der Region. Die Wildwasseranlage ist nicht nur Trainings-, sondern auch Wettkampfstätte für die Slalom-Kanuten.
