    The Federal performance centre Kienbaum is situated in the sector of the municipality Kienbaum, about 35km east of Berlin. Existing houses and buildings were used as a recreation park since 17th September 1949.


    Already since 1951 the facility was used by athletes as a recreation place. On 24th June 1952 the whole real estate was officially given to the competitive sports as training facilities. At first it was only the natural conditions of the magnificent scenic location that made the training possible, but in the following decades the sports facilities were extended more and more. Training facilities that offer the best conditions for a lot of sports today developed.


    Between 1952 and 1990 the sports facilities were under the administration of the German gymnastics and sports union (DTSB) of the GDR. After the reunion of both German states the utilization of the complex for the training of competitive sports could be secured. Today responsible for the sports operation and also the catering is the "Trägerverein Bundesleistungszentrum Kienbaum e.V." . They coached a part of the German competitive athletes in preparation for the Olympic Games in Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney and Athens.


    The association will also meet these purposes in the future. Therefore the sports centre Kienbaum received in1997 the status as a Federal performance centre ("Bundesleistungszentrum" (BLZ)). Since 1998, in arrangement with the Federal authorities, German Sports Union and the association, they started to redevelop the sports facilities and buildings step by step and build new facilities. With that the good training conditions for athletes here remain and will be extended in the future.

    Rutger Smith (born July 9, 1981 in Groningen) is a Dutch track and field athlete competing in the shot put and discus throw. He was the first athlete to win medals at the World Championships in both events. He represented the Netherlands at the Summer Olympics in 2004, 2008 and 2012. His personal best of 21.62 m for the shot put is the Dutch national record.


    In his first international competition, he won a shot put and discus double at the 1999 European Athletics Junior Championships. At the 2000 World Junior Championships he won medals in both events, and he also competed in both events at the 2004 Olympics. In 2005 he won silver medals in shot put at the European Indoor Championships and World Championships. Two years later he won the bronze medal in the discus at the 2007 World Championships and narrowly missed a shot put medal with a fourth place finish.


    A series of back problems affected his throwing after he competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and he did not return to competition until April 2011.


    Since then he has competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics, and won a silver medal at the shot put in the 2012 European Championships.[ He also finished fourth in the men's discus at the same championships. This result was later upgraded to bronze after the disqualification of Zoltán Kővágó.
