Faster, higher, further: the ideal hall for training and championships
During the 1972 Summer Games and the 2002 European Championships, the track and field athletes warmed up here before their competitions next door in the Olympic Stadium. The hall was named after Werner-von-Linde (1904 - 1975), a sports official who played a key role in Munich's bid for the 1972 Summer Games. The former decathlete, who sat on the supervisory board of the Olympic Park Munich GmbH after 1972 until his death, also gave his name to the Werner-von-Linde sports festival held here by his home club TSV 1860. Bavarian and German top athletes still train here today, and the hall is also the venue for regional indoor championships time and again.
