A man and woman are shaking hands on a track.

Emotions, cheers of jubilation, thundering applause, tears of joy - thousands of Olympic sporting events remain firmly engraved in our memories.


At the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, many new and fascinating moments were added. 16 athletes from Bayer clubs took part. And quite successfully: Two of them won medals. They followed in the footsteps of the successful Bayer athletes who have so far won a total of 70 medals at the Olympic Games. Many of their performances have remained engraved in our memories. They include decathlete Willi Holdorf, double Olympic champion Heide Ecker-Rosendahl, and Ulrike Meyfarth with their sensational achievements and comebacks. Names and pictures we will never forget.
