Diabetes researchers set a good example

Sports as diabetes prevention is a longtime known fact. Scientists from DZD partner Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID) put this into practice and participated in the 8th REWE Team Challenge on June 8th, 2016. The 16 PLID Runner went along with another 15,984 runners to the 5km long route from Dresden Altmarkt to the DDV Stadium.

Despite the warm temperatures, the PLID teams, where researchers from different working-groups thus established deeper contacts, can be proud of their great rankings within all participants. In the rankings of the solely female teams, the team "PLID 3" finished with a total time of 1:51:11 on the excellent 94th place of a total of 520 competing teams. In the mixed teams, team "PLID - AG Birkenfeld" finished on place 114 (1:33:23), the team "PLID 2" on place 506 (1:42:36) and the team "PLID 1" on place 1312 (1:54:38) of total of 2129 competing mixed teams. In the individual competition, Nina Wodrich was able to ran the fastest time of 00:22:47 and reached place 173 from 6592 within the female rankings. On the male side, Frank Möller finished with 0:22:27 and was ranked on position 2208 of 9954.

Congratulations to this great success and many thanks to all on the track as well as behind the scenes.
