The World Health Organization WHO defines health very holistically – as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Sport is one of the most effective health care measures. Sport promotes personality and team spirit education – and not just muscle building – so we support and support the team of the Dragon Boat Team “Metal Casting Dragon”!
“Metallgussdrachen” – a great team that is (almost) unbeatable!
The trainer Andreas “Richie” Reichert has formed a homogeneous, powerful team with his expertise, his infinite patience and serenity from 20 individuals. Through him, through their camaraderie and team spirit, this team has grown into a dedicated unit and is always good for a surprise today.
The team finds its place among the best teams in the Saarland. But the paddlers of the metal casting kites are always ready to accept austerities in their limited leisure time and to torture themselves in training. Before competitions up to 3-4 times a week. The training plan includes endurance training while running, strength training in the gym and of course the water training. In 2015, for example, they were able to achieve great success as the best Saarland team at the Monkey Jumble in Saarbrücken over 11 km, and also drive home the victory at the Indoor Cup in Calypso, Saarbrücken.
For the coming years, they are also firmly in the spotlight of the head of Saarland’s dragonboat sport and want to permanently establish themselves there. The team manages again and again to create common short-, medium- and long-term goals. The metal casting dragons “always set the sails correctly, because they know exactly where the harbour is”. Their common goal creates cohesion and lets them work together instead of working side by side.
That is why the LUCK team continues to support the »Metal Casting Dragons«.
The Dragon Boat Team »Metallgussdrachen« is organized in the canoe club Völklingen e.V. The club page with lots of information about the dragon boats and all other activities can be found at www.kanuclub-voelklingen.de/
