Polar has been my partner in crime for over a decade. I have always been interested in how the human body works and how you can learn new things. That’s why I also ended up studying physical education and coaching at university. In the future I want to be able to encourage children and grown-ups to find their way to exercise and enjoy the joy of sports!

13.49s (110m hurdles)
I always have to go and touch the first hurdle before the race.
