The SC DHfK is the most successful sports club in the world. Above all in the disciplines of athletics , swimming , rowing , canoe racing , canoe slalom , handball and cycling , athletes at this club made the world class. By 1989 they had won 93 Olympic medals and 136 gold medals at world championships. Some, such as Gustav-Adolf Schur , Uwe Ampler , Klaus Köste , Christian Gille , Anett Schuck , Günther Merkel , Manfred Merkel , Angelika Bahmann , Margitta Gummel , Bärbel Eckert , Siegfried Brietzke , Thomas Munkelt and Kristin Otto , are mentioned here as examples .


The SC DHfK is divided into the departments

as well as a children's sports center.

Handball department

Rowing Department

The history of the rowing department goes back to the year 1866, in which the rowing club Germania was founded in 1866 . This rowing club went on April 6, 1919 in the rowing company Wiking Leipzig . From 1945 until the fall of the Berlin Wall , the traditional club continued to exist in Minden . With the inclusion of RG Wiking Leipzig from Minden, founded by Leipzig rowers who moved away after the Second World War , the rowing department is directly in this tradition. For this reason, the official name of the department until 2012 was Rowing Society Wiking in the SC DHfK Leipzig e. V. With the Elster-Saale Canal and investments in the Burghausen rowing center, there are good conditions for high-performance sports.

The period after 1990 was marked by radical changes in the rowing department. Trimmed by a large coaching staff to three coaches, the national and international successes collapsed. In 1992, Kristina Mundt and Kerstin Müller won Olympic gold. The SC DHfK only took part in the Olympic competition again in 2008 with Annekatrin Thiele , who won a silver medal in a double scull. At the Olympic Games in London in 2012, Thiele rowed the silver medal in the women's double fours and crowned her successful streak with a gold medal in the same boat class at the Games in Rio 2016. In addition to Tim Grohmann , Philipp Wende also took part in the Games in Rio. In the men's quadruple, he rowed the gold medal with his teammates. Tim Grohmann supported the team as a substitute.

Floorball department

The floorball (floorball) department has its origins in the SSC Leipzig . Most of the SSC players founded the Canoniers floorball department in the RBS Leipzig club in 2003 . However, the demands of the team, which initially played in third class, increased and for practical reasons they looked for a large main club in the form of SC DHfK. Since 2008/09 the team has been playing floorball under the name SC DHfK Leipzig . In 2008 the then Canoniers Floorball Club won the German runner-up behind the record champions UHC Weißenfels . The second men's full-field team plays in the third-tier regional league in 2010/11.

Former departments (formerly sections)

Volleyball section


Judo Section (until 1970)

At the Institute for Martial Arts at the DHfK, the Judo department was set up in September 1953 with the teachers Horst Wolf and Siegmund Haunschild . Judo found many fans among the sports students, who formed a strong judo section in the HSG Wissenschaft DHfK . After founding the sports club at the DHfK, the students Hubert Sturm (1959), Hans Müller-Deck (1960), Burkhardt Daßler (3 ×, from 1962) and Helmut Howiller (4 ×, from 1964) won a total of nine GDR championship titles. The judo team of the SC DHfK Leipzig won the GDR runner-up in 1961 and 1965. In 1966 and 1968 the SC DHfK was third in the GDR team championships. From 1969 onwards, at the instigation of the German Judo Association, the most competitive Leipzig judoka was concentrated in the Sportclub Leipzig (SCL).

Football section

The soccer section of the SC DHfK Leipzig played a semi-series in the second-rate GDR league in 1954 and was then dissolved again due to unsuccessfulness.


In an effort to create a promising top football team in Leipzig, a football section was founded in 1954 at the sports club of the German University of Physical Culture in Leipzig (DHfK), in which two teams were put together. The players should benefit from the university's scientific knowledge and in future form the trunk for the national soccer team. In order to set up the teams, players were "delegated" by other teams from all over the GDR - this is the usual GDR description for player transfers. In the first team, players were brought together, most of whom had already been used in their previous clubs in the men's area and therefore had a certain amount of experience. The second team, on the other hand, should become a reservoir for promising young talents. The Hungarian János Gyarmati , who had previously coached SG Dynamo Dresden , was used as coach for both teams .

The two teams of the SC DHfK Leipzig were immediately classified as newcomers to the second-rate GDR league without sporting qualifications at the beginning of the 1954/55 season - the SC DHfK Leipzig I in season 3 (Southeast region) and the SC DHfK Leipzig II in Season 2 (Southwest region). When it became clear at the end of the first half of the season that neither of the two DHfK teams would achieve the goal of "promotion to the GDR Oberliga " - and because of the reduction in the GDR league to one season, even the third division threatened - both teams were disbanded without further ado . The players of the first team were mainly divided between the teams of the ZSK Vorwärts Berlin and the SC Dynamo Berlin , which was founded at the same time as the SC DHfK Leipzig and which arose from the delegation of the team from Dynamo Dresden to the capital. The place of the SC DHfK Leipzig I in the GDR league took the SG Dynamo Dresden team that remained in Dresden at the beginning of the second half of the season.

The second team went to the newly launched SC Vorwärts Leipzig , which also exercised their right to start in the GDR league.

After the dissolution of the DHfK teams, Gyarmati was promoted to national coach of the GDR team.
