How did you come to triathlon and what sporting past do you have?

In addition to playing soccer when I was young, I always ran and cycled. The impetus for the triathlon was a report from Ironman Austria. This report sparked the triathlon fire in me.

What do you particularly like about the sport?

The challenge of mastering 3 different sports as well as possible.

Which result are you particularly proud of?

The 8:54 at the Ironman Austria 2016.

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

In addition to my job as a key account manager in technical sales, I enjoy spending my free time with my wife Gerhild. I also like to travel with the Vespa in search of good coffee. I also like to go out on touring or cross-country skis in winter.

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

My day always starts at 5:00 am during the week. After an espresso, there is the first training session. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays this is a swimming session with the teammates. After work, there is always an afternoon unit. The larger scopes then take place at the weekend. Of course, this only works with a lot of understanding on the part of the partner! Otherwise, 15 hours of training alongside a full-time job would not be possible.

Describe yourself in 4 words?

It's not possible!

Your life motto?

Work in silence! Let success be your noice!!
