Beckham (jgw) – An athlete from Beckham will also represent the German colors when the 11th World Games begin in Birmingham, Alabama on July 7. 27-year-old Fabian Thorvesten traveled with the DLRG national team and is therefore also part of the Germany squad.
The World Games, the World Games for non-Olympic sports, are always held in the year following the Olympic Games. 3600 athletes from 110 countries are at the start. Germany’s delegation is the second largest group with 234 athletes in 120 medal events.
Rescue games are also part of the competition program there. Thorveston, who is currently pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Sport in Cologne, qualified for the relay events.
