Biographical Information

I already finished the 2017 YRQ in Voyageur Class with my team and had the chance to help as a volunteer in 2019. In addition to my experience on the Yukon River, I gained long-distance experience in 2019 by paddling with some teammates in a C6 Outrigger the Prague-Hamburg race, which leads 800 km down the river Elbe in 5 days.
I've been practicing paddle sport since 2010 and I also love to hike and run. As Captain of our Dragonboatteam, which is listed in the 2nd German Dragonboat League, I train every week.

Aims for this race

Due to the cancelation of our beloved YRQ I will pretend and hope we will have a good time although.
