1 round, 10 hurdles, 400 meters.

Three static numbers describing my sport. The number that describes me is dynamic. It is the time after one lap, after 10 hurdles, after 400 meters. It determines victory and defeat. It is only a number but it defines me in all my facets. To undercut this number is my motivation. Day after day I work hard to get faster and stronger. In 2009, I started athletics and ran a time of 52.52 seconds. Five years later, when I won the European Championships in Zurich, the time stopped at 48.70 seconds. Only the coming years will show how far I can push my time. After completing my medical studies in 2018, I will be focusing all my energy on sport in 2019. In order to achieve my goals, I stick to my maxim: Be realistic and believe the impossible.
