German Team Aims for Medals

Sponsor power one: peak energy for peak performance.


Ellwangen, 11th July 2017

At the 23rd Deaflympics from July 18 to 30, 2017 in Samsun, Turkey, the Olympic Games for persons with hearing disabilities, some 4,000 athletes from 80 nations will be competing for medals in 21 disciplines. The German team is bringing 110 athletes to Turkey. The team is being supported and equipped by power one, which has been a partner and sponsor of the Deutscher Gehörlosen-Sportverband DGS (German Deaf Sport Federation) for many years.

“The DGS and its top athletes benefit from business support. That’s why we’re so pleased that VARTA Microbattery has been our partner since 2011. Many of our athletes wear hearing aids or implants that depend on batteries,” explains Peter Fiebiger, Communications Manager Samsun 2017, Deutscher Gehörlosen-Sportverband e.V.

With its power one brand, VARTA Microbattery, a subsidiary of VARTA AG based in Ellwangen, Germany, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hearing aid batteries. The market continues to grow steadily, and today VARTA Microbattery enables 25 million people around the world to reliably hear again.

“The German athletes can always depend on their hearing aids during competition, because they’re powered by high-performance power one cells,” says Torsten Schmerer, General Manager Retail at VARTA Microbattery. “We’re proud to support the German team and wish all athletes all the best and every success at the Deaflympics 2017.”
