These are some of the people, who support, inspire or motivate me every day!
My Family: Dirk, Irene, and David
All of my close friends
Jan Frodeno, He definitely is my biggest inspiration and role model. By being very successful and very professional he managed to take the sport to another level! I don´t only want to be as successful as he is in the sport, but also want to have such a positive influence on other people like his sponsor’s fans and also competitors.
Yes Theory „A stranger is just a friend, you haven´t met yet!“ This is their slogan. Even though I wouldn´t consider myself as I shy person, I still admire their contact with strangers. After each of their videos, I want to leave my comfort zone to grow my comfort zone! Seek discomfort!
Daniel Ryf, because she dominates the women field year after year. In other words, she wins nearly every race she competes. This dominance is something I venerate very much!
Lucy Charles, If I bet on triathlon, I would bet she leads after the swim. This would be correct every single time. Coming from a swimming background, she got second at the world championship in Kona two times in a row. If she keeps working hard on the run and bike, she will definitely be a very big contender to become the world champion in the following years.
Laura Philipp, Just half a year ago Laura stepped up to long-distance triathlon. However, the first race she competed was Ironman Barcelona, which she not only won but she also took the title for the fastest female, German finisher of any Ironman race ever. It´s well worth to follow her journey by watching her well-produced videos on Youtube, in which she shares a lot about her training and her love for the sport.
Those above are people, who inspire me on a daily bases, but there are so many more, who inspire me as well: Adam Ondra, Anne Haug, Cameron Wurf, David Mcnamee, Eliud Kipchoge, Florian Wildgruber, GCN, GTN, Gustav Iden, Kristian Blummenfelt, Lionel Sanders, Maximilian Schwarzhuber, Patrick Lange, Peter Sagan, Ross Edgley, Vegan Cyclist, Vincent Luis, just to mention a few!
