The University of Klagenfurt invited me to a very special panel discussion with other athletes about how our sport changed us, what we learned through our sport and we also looked at social aspects. Before we had the chance to talk about our experiences, a popular Austrian book author “Franzobel” read a few lines from his book “Cordoba”.
Another special guest was Verena Bentele from Germany. She is a blind Paralympic biathlete and cross-country skier and she is a 4 – times World champion and 10 – times Paralympics champion. It was incredible when she talked about her way to the top, how she trains and what she learned from her sport.
