SRM Triathlete, Dirk Bockel, won the 12th edition of Challenge Roth, the European Long-Distance Championship on July 14th, 2013. Inspired by record crowds and perfect race conditions Bockel completed the 3.8 kilometer swim, 180 kilometer bike, and the final 42 kilometer marathon run in 7:52:01. “This was a dream coming true for sure,” said Bockel. “I’ve been doing triathlon for 24 years now and I would never have imagined I could do this time – believing is such a big part of this sport, as well as putting in the work. I had my fastest ever swim, fastest bike and fastest run. I’m not known for my run, but I got a PB, a new national record. To cut it short, it’s a dream come true."

SRM Indoor Trainer in Space Simulation Training

07. August 2013 - 1 year, 3 months and 15 days ago

Scientists from Bielefeld University’s Research Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) were studying how intelligent assistance systems can help astronauts to keep fit – both physically and mentally. However, tests were not limited to humans, the robots were subjects as well. The scientists were testing both their suitability and their durability. The experiment ended on Saturday (April 27). The experiments are conducted under the supervision of Professor Dr. Franz Kummert and Professor Dr. Britta Wrede. The eight test subjects spent 18 days living closely together in a sealed off area of the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Cologne. ‘Their living conditions were almost as cramped as those in a Space Shuttle,’ said Kummert. Distraction was provided by two robots, Flobi and Nao.
