The Boeing 747-8 with the registration D-ABYA and the baptismal name “Brandenburg” landed at 3:45 p.m. at Frankfurt Airport.

About 50 athletes with their gold, silver and bronze medals were on board this flight from Beijing among them the successful bobsleigh pilots around double Olympic champion Francesco Friedrich as well as Katharina Henning and Victoria Carl, who sensationally won silver in the women’s cross-country relay and the gold medal in the relay sprint.

Due to the Corona rules, the athletes, whose competitions had already ended in the first week, each left after their competitions.
