Cucherat in German Bundesliga

May 4, 2009

Deutsche Turnliga reports:

“Das Niedersächsische TurnTeam Hannover/Celle hat noch mal kurzfristig auf dem “Transfermarkt“ zugeschlagen und hat den französischen Nationalturner Yann Cucherat verpflichtet. Der 29jährige Franzose errang bei den Europameisterschaft in Mailand vor knapp vier Wochen den Titel am Barren und die Silbermedaille am Reck. Nach drei Kampftagen steht das NTT mit 2:4 Punkten auf Platz sechs unter acht Teams und muss nach der schweren Verletzung von Nationalturner Robert Weber vermutlich das Saisonziel, erreichen des DTL-Finals in Karlsruhe Ende November, nach unten korrigieren.”

The Niedersächsisches TurnTeam (NTT) Hannover/Celle engaged Yann Cucherat last-minute for the Bundesliga competitions, which have already started. The 29 years old French gymnast won the gold medal on parallel bars and the silver medal at high bar at the Europeans 09. After three meets, the NTT is on the sixth place of eight teams. Because of an injury of national team member Robert Weber, they propably won´t reach their goal, to qualify for the Final in Karlsruhe in November 09.

It seems, as if the Bundesliga is quite interesting for international gymnasts. How much do they earn by helping the different German teams?
