Olympic Center Carinthia
Sportpark Klagenfurt opened its new Olympic Center Carinthia with a celebration on December 1, 2014. Together with other high-rank representatives of the province of Carinthia and the city of Klagenfurt, ÖOC president Dr. Karl Stoss and governor Dr. Peter Kaiser cut the red-white-red ribbon at exactly 18:45 o’clock that day.
The Olympic Center Carinthia is the fifth of its kind in Austria, following Vorarlberg, Tyrol, Salzburg, and Upper Austria.
The Olympic Center Carinthia team follows the “High Performance Unit“ approach and the goal to accompany and support athletes and their coaching team to reach their highest possible athletic success. Foremost important among the interdisciplinary cooperation of each specific area is the generation of larger scopes of action for the coaching and support teams of the athletes.
It is in the teams highest interest to be able to offer optimal framework conditions for contemporary and innovative athletic supervision and care, and to measure the success as well as individual development of athletes that are set by these important requirements.
The Olympic-High-Performance-Unit integrates diagnostic elements of sports medicine, sport science and psychology, nutritional science, and physical therapy. The multidisciplinary consultations with experts in each of these areas conclude the comprehensive diagnostic process.
