Sports Promotion Prize 2021
On 1 December, I was awarded the Basel-Landschaft Sports Promotion Prize 2021 by Cantonal Councillor Monica Gschwind and Cantonal Parliament President Regula Steinemann. It honours me and makes me proud to receive this important prize. I would especially like to thank those who have always supported me and believed in me!
Change of coach - Thank you Fritz!
I came as a long jumper and you shaped me into one of the best steeplechasers in Switzerland. I had the goal of competing in the Swiss Championships and you took me to the Swiss Elite Championships and the U23 European Championships. My dream of competing at the Olympic Games was so far away and now seems to be a realistic goal for the coming years. Thank you Fritz for your great support!
U23 Swiss Championships, Nottwil
After a long season with many wonderful moments, it was difficult for me to maintain focus in the past weeks. So it was with mixed feelings that I started at the U23 Swiss Championships, for the first time over 5'000m. In a rather tactical race, I finished a good second in 14:52.18.
U23 European Championships Tallinn, Estonia
With my time of 8:59.01 I qualified as 31st out of 37 runners for the U23 European Championships in Tallinn. In the pre-run I set myself the goal to run with the leaders for as long as possible, which I finally achieved wonderfully. With a new personal best of 8:44.19 - 15 seconds faster than I have ever run over this distance! - I finished in an excellent 2nd place and qualified directly for the final. With a time of 8:46.62 and an excellent 8th place I confirmed this time in the final run. To be the 8th best U23 Steeplechaser in Europe makes me proud and happy!
