As a young girl, Andrea found her passion as a gymnast, a xc-skier and just a little later as Biathlete. This passion led her with ups and downs to 2 Olympic Gold medals and 8 Worldchampion titles. Now she is sharing her learnings with the new generation.
Let me tell you why I like to do that
I competed through most of my life and had great results and some not-so-great ones. Those I call my learnings. I learned a lot, and my last wake-up call was just early enough. In other ways, my career would have been ten years shorter, and my life would be a different one. And I want you as well to have an athletic career as long as you like to compete, and not as long as circumstances dictate it.
9 FACTS ABOUT ME AS AN ATHLETE
I had a great start in my life. I was very active, loved running around, and it was hard to get me inside at the end of the day. Starting school, I had all sorts of different after-school activity options and chose to join gymnastics, xc-skiing, and singing in a choir (don´t ask me to sing - better for your ears). In third grade, I quit gymnastics because I hated missing xc-ski sessions because of it. The choir didn`t affect my training negatively (or my singing performance positive), so I quit that too, but not until I switched to a sports boarding school when I was 13.
I was competing until the age of 36 and looking back to lots of things I did right, lots of things I didn´t do optimal, and I keep educating myself on how I could have done better and passing on what I discovered.
