Retirement Horst Strohkendl

After reaching the age limit of 65 years, Horst Strohkendl finished his services at the Fakulty of Special Education of the University of Cologne at the beginning of the year 2007. Still showing excellent shape and health he keeps on serving the German Wheelchair Sports Federation in various positions:

  • Chairperson of the Committee of instructor training for Sports and Rehabilitation
  • Chairperson of the Committee of Rehabilitation and Recruiting in Wheelchair Rugby
  • Technical Director of the Wheelchair Club Cologne
  • Acting in an advisory capasity in Sports for Children and Youth.

The longtime involvement on international level terminated after realising the necessities for grass roots level work and recruiting in the member countries of the international federations. Actually this subject is very much related to the objectives of IFAPA. He hopes to report about his experiences at the forthcoming Symposium of ISAPA and to enjoy meeting with old collegues and friends.  A direct contact with the international sport scene is still employed with IWAS.
