What are your main motivations for doing athletics/handball?

Ever since I was a kid, I was introduced to sports. My father was from Austria and he loved soccer and skiing. My dad is one of my heroes so I wanted to be very good at sports, it’s all I ever wanted to be great at.

What have been your major highlights/achievements in athletics/handball?

I’ve had quite a few but the most memorable achievement I’ve ever received was playing wall-ball was in the 2018 Worlds. The Worlds is hosted once every 3 years since the 1960’s, and we have over 30 countries that compete professionally! This was my first attendance playing for Team USA defeating Ireland in the finals so it was very exciting and a dream come true.
