Hello! I am Arthur Hackenthal and I am 23 years old.
I have been working at Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023 since February 2022 and I really enjoy it.
In my blog I give you insights into my everyday life.
Do you aready know „Die drei ???"
I am a fan of ‘Die drei ???’ and have about 80 CDs. On 13.11.2022 I was in the Mercedes-Benz Arena and saw the voice actors perform an episode live. That was really great.
‘Die drei ???’ are detectives and solve every case. Justus Jonas has a memory like an elephant, Peter Shaw is the sporty detective and Bob Andrews is responsible for the archives.
I can only recommend ‘Die drei ???’. You will love it.
I really liked that I had a lot of fun with the volunteers at the National Games and had interesting conversations.
The Games were also very funny because the volunteers were a colorful group.
The volunteers were able to do many different tasks, get used to the tasks and become more and more confident.
For example, sorting cables, cleaning the tablets for the Healthy Athletes program, or announcing a show act on stage at the SO Festival.
As a volunteer, you can do and unpack a lot of things or be on shift in the service area.
It was also really exhausting at times, and we had to do a lot of work and prepare everything. But we managed it.
The National Games 2022 & Special Olympics World Games 2023
All athletes had fun and the National Games were very nice. Hopefully this year's Special Olympics World Games will be huge.
The National Games were a big success and for the Special Olympics World Games, the goal is clear: Inclusion. And everyone can participate, even if you come from other countries. That doesn't matter.
I liked that I was a part of the National Games, that so many volunteers took part, and that all the athletes had fun and enjoyed themselves. I also really enjoyed driving all over the city and being at different venues.
Come to the Special Olympics World Games and be a part of something big. Inclusion is a big thing here. But what I like most is that my hometown Berlin is a beautiful setting for the Special Olympics World Games.
The Olympiastadion Berlin
On 05.11.2022 I was at the Olympiastadion for Hertha Berlin against Bayern Munich. I got a guided tour of the stadium and was in the players' dressing room, on the coach's bench and in the VIP area.
I took photos with Herthinho, the Hertha mascot and I was able to hold a small press conference in the media room.
The stadium is very nice and big. You have to take a good look at the stadium during the Opening Ceremony.
Until next time,
