PERSONAL BEST
67,16 m (2016)

At my very first Olympic Games in Rio 2016, a childhood dream came true for me. I won the Bronze Medal throwing 67,05m – it was my biggest accomplishment.

My journey began deep in the west of Germany, in Bochum. This is where my home is, where I grew up and where I currently live with my family. While my wife and my little son always support me and make sure I stay balanced, my dad is pushing me to my limits every day during training. We've been working together since many years, he plans my training sessions and helps me improving my technique. Every day we keep on giving our absolute best with one goal in mind: pulling off the perfect throw when it matters most. We look for the optimal interplay of technique, power and feeling.

The Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 are my next big goal and I would highly appreciate if you could support me on my way – both on social media as well as in the stadiums all over the world!

Partners

In the ring I compete as an individual athlete and an ideal interplay of technique, power and feeling is essential to pull off a great throw. Everything needs to work together perfectly well at the right moment.

In order for me to create those opportunities, I need a team at my side that has got my back, making it possible for me to focus entirely on throwing discus. It is not only my coach and family who help me achieving this, but also my partners and sponsors. They have great confidence in me and I take it as my responsibility to justify this trust.

If you would like to support me on my way, I would highly appreciate the opportunity to meet you personally. I believe that shared values and goals are pivotal for a team to function effectively. That is why I would like to give you an understanding of my values and goals in a personal meeting and work out all the possibilities of a potential cooperation.
