22nd Summer Deaflympics for people with hearing loss

Athletes competing at the Sofia Deaflympics powered by power one – the hearing aid energy


The 22nd Summer Deaflympics are due to take place from 26th July to 4th August in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. These Olympic Games for people with hearing loss are recognised by the International Olympic Committee and take place every four years. World-class athletes will compete to win medals in five Deaflympic team disciplines and thirteen Deaflympic individual disciplines.
The German Deaf Sport Association is sending experienced athletes as well as new competitors from the association's successful junior programme, who will represent Germany in a fair competition. The athletes will be supplied with top-performing and reliable power one hearing aid batteries.

For the first time in the history of the Deaflympics, a flame relay has also taken place, with the Deaflympic flame being carried from Paris, the birthplace of the games, to the host city Sofia in Bulgaria. The flame was carried through Germany by bicycle by the German flame relay team, who were also supplied with power one hearing aid batteries.

power one – the hearing aid energy from the manufacturer VARTA Microbattery - wishes all the top athletes a successful Deaflympics and we hope that their dreams of winning a medal will come true.
