Racing - that's why I'm at the starting line so often.

Which result are you particularly proud of?

On my so far slowest Ironman (Frankfurt), which I was able to finish in 10h18min despite a wheel crash due to a broken stem with a somersault and total wheel damage 4 weeks before the competition and many problems in the race.

Your greatest achievements?

Ironman 70.3 World Championship, AK Vice National Champion Olympic distance.

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

I am an entrepreneur and work in the field of IT security, I am married and have 2 daughters.

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

This can only be achieved with good time management and family support.

Honest, spontaneous, humorous, purposeful,

Your life motto?

Plan well but don't forget to live!
