When did you start cross-country skiing?
When I was little, I tried all kinds of sports. At the age of 8 I stood on cross-country skis for the first time.
What was your biggest breakthrough in your cross-country career?
For me personally, it was when I surprisingly became U23 World Champion in 2022 and was allowed to participate in the Olympic Games in Beijing for the first time. After a very difficult summer and a 4-month forced break due to a heart muscle inflammation, I was able to show a super season despite little training and make my first small breakthrough.
Where have you not been yet, where would you like to go (especially for skiing)?
I would love to go cross-country skiing in Canada and Australia. In any case, that's at the top of my to-do list.
