Halfway across the globe

Rostock (LEN) – The shuttle service of the Organizing Committee put in some hard work prior to the Arena European Diving Championships in Rostock: 22 trips alone to the Berlin airports Tegel and Schönefeld were needed to bring all participants and officials to Rostock. Additionally, four rides to the airport Hamburg Fuhlsbüttel were scheduled while two trips were made to the regional airport of Rostock-Laage.

With regard to the departure of all participants, the shuttle service reckons with 19 trips to Berlin, two to Hamburg and another three to Rostock-Laage. “We think that, eventually, our shuttles will have accumulated 22,000 kilometers,” explained Edith Manrau and Hannelore Staker of the Organizing Committee, responsible to coordinate all trips. By the way, the shuttle service is entirely run by volunteer drivers.
