Running a smooth marathon at the Ironman World Championship one day.

After playing tennis and football as a teenager and many years of sporting time out I came into endurance sports quite late. I changed my whole lifestyle and made my way from an unfit couchpotato to an Ironman. Nevertheless I've been at home in triathlon already for several years and have been an 361° ambassador since 2017.

In 2019 I was able to fulfill my dream of participating at the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. Unfortunately I was not able to finish the race and I had to drop out during the first part of the marathon. That means I have unfinished business with the island and the race so I will be back someday to realize my dream of finishing the Ironman World Championship! 

2021 is all about the family. In addition to a professional change, there are also great changes in the family area (wedding and birth). As in the past sport will provide the necessary balance here.
