Promotion of young sports talents by market leader in lactate diagnostics

Swimmeeting Bozen
(PresseBox) ( Barleben, )
Finally, the first drops of sweat are visible: The 17 years aged biker talent of the Team Bianchi pedals the ergometer with an impressing power of 400 Watts. At this level, increasing lactate values also indicate his upcoming performance limitation - typically exceeded by regular sports people at a much lower level of 300 Watts already. The participants of EKF's international sales meeting are astonished, the biker's coach Horst Mueller smiles satisfied, and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hartmann from the university of Leipzig states: "Such a sportsman is like a Porsche - trained for highest performance!"

The recipe of successful training bases significantly on an appropriate load level, balancing on the fine line between positive body stimulation and harming overload of the individual. In the growing market for performance analysis, the modern lactate analyzers BIOSEN and Lactate SCOUT are worldwide established as a "quasistandard" today. This is a reason for the German manufacturer, the EKFdiagnostic GmbH, to take responsibility in sponsoring and promotion of young sports talents:

Starting their career very early, the trial biker team "Bikes in Motion" is managed by Joachim Will and supported by EKF's lactate analyzers with great success, finishing many competitions first and achieving a range of national awards. Another sponsoring partner of EKF is the athletic center LAZ in Leipzig, with well known sportsmen like Tino Haeber, Thomas Blaschek and Peter Sack. Many other projects have to be added, like swim coaching congresses in Italy, seminars and road shows in Spain and UK as well as EKF's strong support of sports academies and international events.

"Very often, it's the money what matters in elite sports - but our main intention is education and information" affirms Berthold Walter, founder and CEO of the company. Besides several issues and translations of the booklet "training in your hand - performance analysis in amateur sports", the EKFdiagnostic GmbH also organizes an annual "Info-Day" for lactate testing. Thereby, coaches and scientists, sports dealers and teachers are coming together, to exchange latest workout methods, testing principles and research results.

"The practitioners are the most important source of knowledge - they make daily experiences, and they discover new options at first. As the leading manufacturer of lactate analyzers we like to collect and to convey this information also for amateurs and young talents in sports. Six years ago, it was hardly to imagine that lactate diagnosis could be useful for this kind of sports people - but today, 80% of the customers arise from these target groups, increasing their training success evidently."
