2016…

..is coming to its end. A year that has been good in so many ways, but yet so strange. Its been a brilliant sports year and i have achieved outstanding results, but i have put all the results in perspective when i think back over the year.

2016-3

Gone too soon, Its been a year of loss. Loss of good friends. In August my dear friend David lost his battle to Cancer. A month later my dear colleague Jorge lost his battle. As Im writing this my best friend Sara´s boyfriend, Andreas is battling a sever liver cancer…

2016-1

Sara and Andreas have been visiting me the past summers. They have been by my side, supporting me achieving my best sports results. They were in Lisbon this summer when i won my double European Gold medals. It was very special sharing that moment with them. But yet those achievments feels so small when i compare them to the battle of life…

2016-4

Sara and Andreas at the Europeans…

2016 has been good in many ways, but yet so strange…

I dont know what 2017 will bring,  we shall see…

Stromp 2016

2016 was in fact a fantastic sports year for me and it was a big honor to receive my 3rd Stromp last Friday at the Sheraton Hotel in Lisbon.

The Stromp award is considered as the “Oscars” of Sporting.  I got the first back in 2011 when i won a silver medal at the European AG Championship in Spain, in 2014 after the Gold in Austria and this year as a recognition for my 2 gold medals in Lisbon.
