What is most important for you about sport?
Sport gives me self-confidence and endless experiences which reach beyond the usual ones and shape my social values. Further, sport is big fun doing it with others.
What is special for you about sport shooting?
The complexity of the sport: Body and soul have to perfectly harmonize and technical knowledge comes on top. It's all about perfection.
What would be your advice for other athletes?
It doesn't matter if you are a paralympic or olympic athlete nor if you are an amateur or professional. It is important to believe into yourself and work towards your goals.
What would be your advice for others to advance in life?
Set your goals and consequently go for it. But do not forget about the nice details and joys apart your way. Be open for new things, be humble for the achieved and always be respectful with others. That would be a nice foundation to enjoy life.
Do you have a personal maxim in life?
Carpe diem with joy.
