What's your story?

I was born in Augsburg at 07.05.1990. I started paddling in 2001 in Augsburg. My first coach and mentor was Klaus Gebhard. We had a lot of fun in the group until 2010. Then he stopped with coaching, that was a sad day. But I didn´t stop paddling, because i love the sport too much. In 2012 my dream came true - i was qualified for the Olympic Games in London. It was more than only the first Olympic Games for me, I won there the silver medal. That was amazing. I want to have that experience again which is why i do what i love everyday.
