How & why did you start:

I have always been very sporty. After quitting with volleyball, I first started taking different group training classes and worked as an instructor as well. Yet, I had a feeling that something was missing. It wasn’t giving me enough challenge. I tried CrossFit out the first time in Germany but it took me a couple of years until I went to the on-ramp course at CrossFit 33100.

Your coolest sport memory:

The first qualification to Winter War as an RX athlete.

Your biggest goal:

I want to stay healthy and achieve my top potential as an athlete.

Motto:

In life, you must do things that make you happy.
