Emotions were sky high and the german mens team Mojito(Mosh-gee-toe) numero uno, held a strong front during the pre game press conference. The captain Florian said that he will need motivation from his team and will not spare any team members that do not have the motivation to give what it takes to win the match. When asked what the teams diet was like Florian exclaimed  “Eggs Eggs Eggs..”

“Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!”- Captain Florian on the teams diet.

The co- captain Jonas added that they optimised the teams diet by eating cuban rice and beans, to into get into the mindset of their opponents.

In addition there was still a friendly mixed team match. German women formed a team with cuban men, and the german men paired with cuban women. In this friendly match, the wrath of the losers was felt and like a phoenix the german women and cuban men were reborn and beat the previous winners 2-0.

Sunday- daily update DAY 00

​The summer school has not yet officially started, however, the first alumni and students were already early and ready to register for the courses. The ISSEM organisation  team was already prepared to welcome this year’s participants. 

New and old faces came together, kisses were flying in the air and smiles were exchanged. Stories from the past were reheated, and current affairs were discussed as well. The alumni in particular were very open to share and tell us what they had been up to. It felt like all these people were eager to be a part of something that they had been a part of before- in another time and place.
