Who I am and how I got started

I’m a professional triathlete from Austria. When I was a boy I started as a track and field athlete and cross-country runner. In the 2000 I joined a friend and his parents and did my first triathlon. From that time on triathlon became my life. In 2012 I changed from short distance races to long distance races, and since 2015 I have been a member of the professional triathlon team „Pro-Team Mohrenwirt“. However, I’m not just an athlete but also the head coach of one of the most successful youth triathlon teams in Austria. Furthermore I also coach some ambitious age-group athletes.

Three words that best describe me

  • hard working
  • creative
  • stubborn like a donkey 

Why I use Formthotics

Because with Formthotics my shoes fit better and I have the feeling that I can run faster and ride harder with them.

When I think of Formthotics…

I think about a small piece of equipment that I would never want to miss in training or races.

A perfect days goes like this…

Breakfast, 5k swim, 120k bike ride in the sun, nice run off the bike, followed by a pizza and chocolate cake.

Three things on my bucket list

  • Winning an Ironman race
  • Riding down the Pan American Highway with a motor cycle
  • Becoming a dad
