I have always been a sports enthusiast and, therefore, decided to study sports science. I love to put myself to the test, show willpower and extraordinary athletic performances. I played football in a club for a long time, was national champion with the school fistball team and won dance tournaments in Latin dances in 3 countries. As a ski and snowboard instructor, I was besides winter sports also enthusiastic about other sports such as tennis and golf. I took part in the Vienna City Marathon in 2001 and even at the New York City Marathon in 2018 – the fulfilment of a lifelong dream.
