In June, Hamburg took on the prestigious role of being the global hub of sports medicine and science for a remarkable three days. The renowned harbour city nestled along the banks of the River Elbe played host to an assembly of 1,650 experts hailing from 32 nations, all congregating for the momentous Sports, Medicine, and Health Summit (SMHS). Moreover, the local community of Hamburg was graciously welcomed to engage in a range of activities, thought-provoking panel discussions, and the captivating “SMHS Arena.”
In the freshly renovated Hall H of the CCH (Congress Center Hamburg) and its surrounding outdoor spaces, an array of engaging activities were available for all attendees to enjoy. Some of the offerings included morning, noon, evening and even night yoga sessions, the thrill of bobsledding on 30-meter tracks, the invigorating Hyrox challenge focusing on strength and endurance, speed training, fitness tests, and even a specially tailored skating experience for wheelchair users. In total, 30 hours of diverse physical activities were accessible to participants.
