In general, I adore all sports activities. However, endurance is more suited to me than weight training.
I still remember when I got a bike for my birthday at the age of 9 I was not so convinced and motivated. I always had to go up such a stupid hill that wasn't my thing. I would never have thought that today everything is about sports activities.
Most embarrassing sport moment:
In the training camp in Sabaudia Italy, it was the last training day. I was happy about every second that I was faster in the rowing boat. There was the opportunity to ride alongside the German women's four. Sure, they didn't know anything about my plan. No matter, because it was only my motivation to row faster than them. Long speech, my undertaking was abruptly terminated with driving up into the bridge pier. The attention of the women's quad and all those who trained on site was now given to me.
Proudest sport moment:
Qualification for the Olympic Summer Games RIO 2016 in Valparaiso, Chile March 2016 in Skiff (single).
