Participating in the Olympic Games is most kids’ dream. Originally from Herzogenaurach, I started the sport of athletics when I was four years old and always loved the sport. Just like many other people, at some point, I had to realize that participating in the Olympics as an athlete was not going to happen.
Today, I am working at adidas in the Athlete Services department, which is for me, one of the most exciting jobs I can think of. Our responsibility is the daily interaction with our professional athletes and the products, making sure their footwear or apparel supports them to perform at their very best. As part of this function, our team has been working together with our athletes in the months leading up to Olympic Games.
