The German national women’s soccer team beat Sweden 2:1 in the final. Its players include Alexandra Popp, Almuth Schult, Lena Goeßling, Babett Peter, and Isabel Kerschowski, all of whom play for VfL Wolfsburg, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft. The opposing side included yet another member of the “Wolves” – Nilla Fischer, who despite the defeat was still happy to get silver.
Å day later came a second silver medal. The women’s kayak four with Sabrina Hering took second place in the 500-meter sprint, beaten only by Hungary. A 24-year-old specialist in office communications who has a sports support position with Volkswagen Sports Communications, Hering works as a clerk in the human resources department for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
