My life has been full of challenges, after becoming disabled at age 13 I didn’t give up,

I looked for oppurtinities to live life at the fullest and became a professional athlete.

I have a mission to take myself to the highest level possible. After winning the World Championships Ironman, I was on a fast track  to the Paralympic Games in London 2012.            

                            But... everything suddenly changed.

After an accident in 2010 my body started to change and after a long/ hard rehab period I am back on my own feet again! For me a new competition has started now,

I don’t know were or when it is gone finish but I will succeed and I will run!
