Challenge Walchsee – EM 2019

What do you like most about the sport?

With the 3 disciplines it is always very varied in training and you can see a lot of nature. Triathlon – a sport where you can perfect 3 disciplines and show what is possible. For me triathlon is a lifestyle, this sport is a fixed part of my life.

Which result are you particularly proud of?

The first MD at the Challenge St. Pölten 2019 – everything went perfectly until the 7th km came during the run. With strong stomach pain I had to fight through and it was more than hard not to give up here. But giving up was not an option. With 5h I could proudly end the fight.

What do you do besides sport (job, family, ..)?

My main job is with the police in a special unit – ASE WEGA. Very important for me is the balance with my family and friends with whom I like to go out to eat or spend time comfortably. To switch off, I like to be alone in the mountains and enjoy nature.

How do you manage to balance family, work and sport?

The balance is not always easy to manage in my job, often there is a lot of overtime. A 70-80 hour week is not uncommon, but it is still out of the question for me to cut out training. I do it with passion and therefore the question does not arise. Often it is hard to go into training after 24h duty but a mental toughness belongs to a certain degree to it! I usually do my training first and then enjoy time with my loved ones.
