International Shooting Sport Federation gives away places for RIO 2016

 

Frankfurt/Gabala, 6 August 2015 – Today, the ISSF World Cup in shooting kicks off in Gabala, Azerbaijan with more than 1,100 athletes from 90 countries. Shooters from all over the world will participate in 15 ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) competitions in the next Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. 34 quota places are foreseen, which the athletes will compete for in the World Cup.

 

For the competitions to take place, the German cultural project logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) transported the equipment needed for the event to Gabala in advance. It is with the greatest precision that the experts on the CSL team work on these transports, which are not logistics as usual due to the regulations to be observed and the sensitivity of the event equipment.

 

Before the actual transport to Azerbaijan could be planned, the equipment had to be collected from various sites all over the world, with parts of the shipment coming from Rome and even Acapulco and Larnaca. Last but not least, the material was used at an event in Munich before it was then taken to Gabala.

From Sochi and Glasgow to Nanjing, Conceptum Sport Logistics puts sport on the move

 

Frankfurt/Nanjing, July 22, 2014 – All roads lead to Nanjing may as well be the motto of German logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) From August 16, the Chinese city is hosting the Second Summer Youth Olympic Games for young athletes from around the world (www.nanjing2014.org). On top of organizing the journeys of numerous teams and shipping their equipment, the German cultural project logistics company has been tasked with transporting the time keeping devices. With a number of athletes and their equipment making the journey to the Chinese metropolis of Nanjing from the Olympic city of Sochi, not to mention the many teams setting off from the Commonwealth Games, the containers carrying the equipment will travel to China from Russia and Scotland as well as from countless other countries around the world. “The equipment belonging to the sportsmen and women will be handled with the utmost care, as it is sacred to each and every athlete. For this reason, we can’t just treat it like we would more everyday freight. Furthermore, for logistical reasons, the sports items are temporarily stored at the venues of previous sporting events before being brought to another competition site, hence the multitude of transportation routes to Nanjing,” says Sebastian Stahl, managing director of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

 

Almost 4,000 athletes between 15 and 18 years old

In contrast to the Olympic Games, the approximately 4,000 young sportsmen and women being sent to Nanjing by the world’s 204 National Olympic Committees (NOC) are no more than 18 years of age. 70 athletes are travelling to the event from Germany alone. The competition not only includes the 28 disciplines that will feature at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, but will also give the young athletes the chance to take part in more unusual sports. In addition to mixed-gender team sports, the games will include showcase events that are not normally included in the Olympics, such as sport climbing, skateboarding and wushu. The main focus of these games is on youth development and conveying the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.
