My Story

When athletes usually end their sport career, at he age of 36, I started mine. From a 2.5 km jog after work, I found myself in Hawaii for the IRONMAN world championship in just three years.

Without being specifically talented for any sport in particular, endurance sports gave you the possibility cover talent with determination, self confidence and persistency.

Mixing it up with a good plan and time management, everything was possible.
