I first took up triathlon in 2000, because I was very athletic and did lots of different sports, so my father encouraged me to do triathlon. I have an athletic family background. The people who have had the most influence on my sporting career are my whole family and my coach, Peter Kriegelsteiner.
I currently train in Tirol, and during an average training week I spend about eight hours swimming, 10 hours biking, and five hours running. I have participated in the Singapore Friendship Camps. My favorite ITU race is Kitzbuhel; it’s close to where I live and organized perfectly. My triathlon goal is to get faster.
