Biography

My father was one of the first triathletes in the former eastern part of Germany. He won his first triathlon in 1984 in Leipzig and finished in 4th place (AG 40) on Hawaii in 1993. He was my first coach and mentor and we still train together from time to time. After my first triathlon 1990 it was my greatest desire to become professinal Triathlet. It all became true after three-month national army service ( oct-dec1997) i got sended to the army sports promoting group Mainz. In january 1998 i moved to the olympic Center to Saarbr├╝cken, where i could train together with the best german short distance Triathlets. Since then i life my dream nearly every day, smile.
