Jurgen in (cooperation with) press and media
For sports organisations it is becoming increasingly important (as Thomas Bach, IOC president, stated earlier) to realize that “youth today has so many options for their leisure time that you just can’t wait for young people to come to sport”.
In order to become /remain appealing to young people, sports need to profile themselves as lucrative and media friendly. Whether attracting younger people is the main driving force or a side-effect of attracting sponsors, making the cultural and artistic dimensions of events like the Olympic Games of secondary importance, is another discussion.
Making the sport of sailing more media friendly is not only a matter of selecting the disciplines to be presented to the media and the interaction between media and athletes / coaches, but also explaining the roles of the different officials and improving their approachability / interaction within the given rules framework.
This website has been created with the intention to provide some information about Jurgen and his activities. It however can not be comprehensive.
