“The federation wants to create a cordial relationship with the German Olympic Committee through this exchange programme.

“Leipzig City University has many experts in Wheelchair Basketball training, who can be of immense benefit to our federation.

“They will be trained at the Leipzig City University with the assistance of the German Olympic Committee.
