JAKO extends partnership with Niko Kappel
Niko Kappel remains JAKO brand ambassador. The 27-year-old has extended his contract until 2025. As the current world record holder in the Para shot put, he is one of the most popular para-athletes in German sport and competes for the VfB Stuttgart athletics department.

Kappel has already celebrated several successes in his career. His greatest achievement came at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro when he won the gold medal. The highlight of the past season was his world record, which he was able to extend to 14.99 meters just a few days later. His next goal is to win the gold medal at the World Championships in Paris this summer. As the reigning world record holder, Niko Kappel is one of the top favorites.

Niko Kappel is a role model in terms of ambition and motivation. In addition to his sporting successes, he is also heavily involved in social activities. He is particularly active in the areas of promoting young talent and inclusion.
