KIT University Sport Wins adh Competition Ranking
The umbrella organization of German university sports, adh, publishes the national competition ranking of German universities every year. The prestigious adh ranking is made up of three sub-rankings. In addition to the pure performance ranking, the participation ranking and the host ranking are also included. Since 2006 the performance of the students and their university is evaluated. All rankings consider the absolute performance of the individual universities without weighting them according to the number of students.
Last year, Karlsruhe University Sports defended its strong second place from 2011, and the German Sport University Cologne seemed impossible to dislodge from the top in the overall ranking with its distinctive competitive structures. But in 2013, the KIT succeeded in winning the overall ranking for the first time and thus received this special honor. After all, the competition ranking is confirmation that university sport in Karlsruhe also sets national standards. Second place in the overall ranking was secured for the first time by WG Münster. Last year's winner Cologne landed in third position.
Whereas in last year's organizer ranking they only occupied sixth position, in 2013 they were able to achieve the leading position. In the participant ranking, the previous year's victory was defended. As in the previous year, the performance ranking was concluded with a strong fourth place. The German Sport University Cologne took a commanding first place in this sub-ranking.
"The competition ranking of the adh already confirmed to us in the past two years that university sports at KIT are excellently organized and structured. The good performances of our students as well as the great work of the honorary chairmen and responsible persons in the past year, let this great result come about. They are to be thanked for it", Dr. Dietmar Blicker, head of university sports at KIT, states with great pleasure. "Moreover, the top position is a proof of the commitment and the good work of the employees of university sports as well as of the sports department at KIT." However, the head of university sports does not want to lean back on the first place in the competition ranking of the adh: "We strive to be able to continue to offer the best conditions for our weekly 7000 participants and their supervisors."
