German Running National champion 10K, Half, Cross-Country
Polar helps me as a marathon pro with my training management and to perfectly balance training load and recovery. I wouldn't want to train without my Polar Vantage V anymore.
July 16, 1987
2:12:50h (marathon, 2015)
1:03:14h (half marathon, 2018)
28:40:39min (10.000m, 2014)
13:31:24min (5.000m, 2012)
I like to have a double espresso before my races.
Proudest sporting moment:
My first finished marathon in Berlin in 2015. My time of 2:12:50h is still my personal best but also was my ticket to the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016 which made a childhood dream for me come true.
