Runner-up! Doppstadt congratulates Moritz Florstedt

Canoe talent Moritz Florstedt left the Junior/U23 World Championships in Plovdiv/Bulgaria with a silver medal. Along with his three teammates from Potsdam he finished second in the K4 race over 500 m. With 16 years, Moritz was the youngest athlete present!

We are especially proud that the city of Calbe plays quite a part in Moritz’s success. Calbe-born Olympic Champion Mark Zabel is his coach, and Doppstadt Calbe GmbH has been his sponsor since the beginning of the year.

All of this provides the ideal basis for reaching the next career goal, which is winning the single title over 500 m in the 2019 world championships – then in his bright orange Doppstadt canoe!

Before that, Moritz and the boat can be watched at the 2018 German Championships in Hamburg and the Olympic Hope Games in Poznan/Poland. And there is a good chance that we’ll see Moritz in the 2020 Olympic competition in Tokyo as well.

We wish „our“ athlete all the best for the upcoming races!
