old acquaintance returns to ac lichtenfels as hopeful

The german wrestling league (DRL) has announced that it will pause its league operations in 2020. Under the umbrella of the german wrestling federation (DRB), the first state federations are considering suspending the season. North rhine-westphalia already announced it would not resume operations at the state level until 2021. At present, it is far from certain that AC lichtenfels will be able to start its eighth bundesliga season in october as planned.

2012 as a huge talent to the ACL

When the bundesliga should start, a wrestler will wear the ACL jersey he had already put on in 2012 – tim muller. Muller came to obermain as a 20-year-old talent, and has competed 30 times for the ACL – most of them victorious. In the course of the two years in lichtenfels, muller made a name for himself on the obermain. He won more than two-thirds of his fights before he left lichtenfels for ispringen in the 2014 season. There he fought his way into the semifinals of the german championship with KSV, and later also with ASV mainz. Muller considers winning the german championship in 2017 to be a milestone in his individual sporting career, when "after a long break and many, many hurdles" he was able to win the title after becoming german champion of the manner again in 2015.

Wrestling genes present

Muller was formally born to wrestle. His father was already on the mat. Cousin dieter schwind, a european and world champion, was a sporting role model for the youngster while he was gaining his first experience as a wrestler. At that time, the native of aschaffenburg was still on the mat for hosbach and developed there into a promising talent, which also attracted the attention of AC lichtenfels. However, it was to take some time from the first contact to the change. The decisive factor was finally simon pilzweger (2009 to 2014 at the ACL) "who guided me a bit there", muller remembers the decision to move to lichtenfels. Two successful years later, it was clear to the now 22-year-old muller that he would not be able to make the weight of 66 kilograms for another season. A move to the 74-kilo class was inevitable. However, pilzweger was at home in this one. Muller, who did not want to be a rival for his friend, therefore decided to accept the offer of KSV ispringen.

Huge letdown at borussia monchengladbach, big relief at eintracht frankfurt: the last-minute K.O. The bundesliga leaders missed out on the german trio’s first complete march through the group stage of the european league in ten years.

Nevertheless, there are still three bundesliga teams in the sixteen-final draw next monday, since besides frankfurt and vfl wolfsburg, who have already qualified, champions league relegated bayer leverkusen will also be playing in the competition during the winter. In the first meeting.O.-in the 15th round, renowned opponents such as ajax amsterdam, FC arsenal, manchester united, celtic glasgow, inter milan, benfica lisbon, FC porto, FC sevilla or red bull salzburg await the unseeded bundesliga trio.

Borussia, of all teams, became the only german club to fail early with a last-minute 1:2 loss to basaksehir istanbul. "We’ll pick ourselves up again," coach marco rose defiantly proclaimed ahead of the year-end spurt in the league.

curfew: bamberg's city council wants nothing different

Currently, the pubs have to close at four o'clock on weekends and at two o'clock during the week. This will probably not change even after the demonstration by the students against the current lock-up times. The chairmen of the parliamentary groups in the bamberg city council, whom we asked about possible corrections, were unanimous, from the CSU to the SPD, in their view that the current regulation is already a compromise and that they do not want to change it.

For example, helmut muller of the CSU. "We will not question the decision of 2011, because we believe that we have to keep all residents of bamberg in mind." Muller recalls that residents originally wanted an earlier curfew.

Even in the bamberg SPD, there seems to be no majority for a cave-in: "the current lock-up period is a compromise that we would like to keep", said faction leader wolfgang metzner (SPD). Metzner at most announced his willingness to reconsider the question of special permits for cultural events. Background: one year after the introduction of the new curfew, the city council decided to reduce by 50 percent the special permits it had issued too often, which has since been done. Metzner does not see a compelling connection between the topic of culture and the postponement of the night's rest by one hour, as demanded by the students: "what should an artist have against starting his event one hour earlier??"

Cheering for the very last time

Landesliga nord, male C-youth: HSG schwanberg/main – TV eibach 34:28 (18:11).

After his players had received their well-deserved applause and thanked the opponent for a fair game, the last performance belonged to the coach. On the tribune, the spectators rose from their seats; on the field, everyone turned in his direction and showered christian renz with applause.
After the afternoon had been dominated by sports, the 44-year-old now experienced his most moving moments, as he had just played his last game as youth coach of HSG schwanberg/main. "This season we were one of the strongest teams in the league, but unfortunately we had some bad luck with injuries. In the last game, my team once again showed their true capabilities. That was the crowning conclusion, renz was happy about the final.

On the last day of play, the hosts once again became the tongues on the scales. While the fourth place for the hosts was as good as fixed in advance, it was still about the championship for the guests from eibach.
To do so, however, the team from nurnberg had to win in the maintalhalle in order to wrest the title from the matchless table leader from lohr.

Grune disputes openness to coalitions other than red-green

The head of the bavarian green party, dieter janecek, caused a stir with his call for openness for alliances other than with the SPD. "Anyone who still relies on the camp campaign model is riding a dead horse," wrote janecek and a co-author on tuesday in an internet blog.

Grunen chairman cem ozdemir put janecek in his place: "I recommend that our bavarian state chairman worry about the upcoming state elections in bavaria," ozdemir told the "tageszeitung/taz" (wednesday). "There is certainly still enough to do, which should keep him busy."

In his appeal, janecek had argued that voters should be able to count on the greens implementing their ideas in a red-green government after the federal elections. But in the event of missing this goal, the party should counter a possible rough coalition of insistence with a small option of change. This could mean, for example, a black/green coalition.
