Welcome to my blog and thank you for following me!
With great pleasure I take you into my world as a triathlete. Triathlon, and everything that comes with it, has become my passion and occupies an important part in my life, therefore I´d like to give you a bit of my enthusiasm!
I started blogging to take family and friends with me on my trip to my first Ironman on Lanzarote on the 20th of May 2017 and, via Ironman Maastricht on the 6th of August, I took not only family and friends but also many other supporters and followers on my road to the World Championship Ironman Hawaii on the 14th of October 2017. A dream has become reality at lightning speed!
I kept on dreaming of going back to Hawaii to become World Champion in my agegroup in a few years, but it only took me one… I’ve been through an amazing season and performed better than ever on World Championship Hawaii on the 13th of Ocotber 2018. In a new course record of 9:36:27 I became WORLD CHAMPION in agegroup 30-34.
2019 was my first year as professional triathlete and it’s like the story continues. The big dream was to qualify for Hawaii, which is quite a challange as a pro. With an incredible race at Ironman Malaysia on the 24th of October, I took the win and secured my slot for the world championships in 2020! Unfortunately this has to wait another year as the world of triathlon has standing still because of COVID19. It’s the date that is changed, not the goal!
Follow my road here! Enjoy the ride 😀
