Press Release 20.09.2022

After the successful cooperation between the German Hockey Association (DHB) and the Munich expert for micronutrients, and MITOcare GmbH & Co. KG, at the U21 Hockey World Championship 2021 in India, both sides now want to expand their cooperation. MITOcare® is now supporting the German women's and men's national team in preparation for the big goal, the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

"As top Olympic athletes, we are always on the lookout to raise our performance potential down to the last detail. In a few first "walking attempts" with our male U21 national team, MITOcare® turned out to be a success factor," says DHB sports director Dr. Christoph Menke-Salz and adds: "Due to the constant high stress in training and competition, our athletes have a very high need for micronutrients. MITOcare® supports the nutrient base and thus provides the basis for optimizing the metabolism for repair and rehabilitation between the stress phases.”

In order to ensure this, regular, sometimes joint laboratory checks of the metabolic parameters, but also the evaluation of injury numbers, training loads and other increased abnormalities should help to achieve a more stable training and competition load. That's why the team doctors are in close contact with the doctors and experts from MITOCare® on diagnoses and therapeutic options in order to get the best out of the partnership - but above all out of the athletes.

Alexander Sahmel, doctor, partner of MITOcare® and himself a former national hockey player explains “Micronutrients are the basis for a healthy body and a healthy psyche. This is very important, especially for top athletes when it comes to preparing optimally for a competition. The fact that the DHB relies on our micronutrients and our medical and scientific know-how is an important sign for us and motivates us".

Christian Burghardt, doctor and co-founder of MITOcare®, is also pleased about this cooperation: "It is a great honor for our company to be able to accompany the German national hockey teams with a view to the Olympic Games in Paris in two years' time. We have already proven in other cooperations that we athletes can optimally support them in preparing for competitions, among other things".

MITOcare® has been a reliable partner for top German athletes for years when it comes to micronutrients and dietary supplements. In addition to the Bavarian Olympic base, the Munich-based company also supports athletes such as soccer professionals Quirin Moll and Moritz Leitner and tennis player and Wimbledon finalist from 2013, Sabine Lisicki.
