Deborah in an interview

1. what sport do you do and how did you get into it?

I'm a bobsleigh athlete (pusher) and came to bobsleigh via athletics.

2. What makes your sport special?

Running through the ice channel at an average speed of 130 km/h is pure adrenaline!

3. What motivates you to do your sport?

I love pushing my limits every day and pushing them further. But it's also incredibly fun to work together as a team to achieve our goals. The special moments we experience in competition and sport stay with me forever and drive me on.

4. What has been your greatest success to date?

Olympic gold with my pilot in Beijing 2022.

5. What criteria do you use to decide which competitions you take part in?

We have a World Cup season of eight World Cups, followed by a season highlight at the end, usually a World Championship. The aim is to qualify for the World Championships. I share the World Cups before that with the second pusher in our team.

6. What does an ideal day look like for you?

Sleep in, have a hearty breakfast with good coffee and spend the rest of the day outside in the sun with friends or family.

Fun Facts

Everything about recovery

1. what does perfect regeneration look like for you?

quite simply: sleep! But I also like to regenerate a little more actively, for example with a short walk or Reboots.

2. When do you prefer to use your Reboots?

After an intensive running session to get the lactate out of your legs and loosen up your muscles.

3. How important is the topic of "regeneration" to you?

Very important! Regeneration is what allows me to perform the intensive training sessions at the highest possible level.

4. What is your insider tip for using the Reboots?

I like to spend a little longer in the Reboots, but with less pressure.

5. What do you keep yourself occupied with while you're in the Reboots?

Mails or I'm on my cell phone, otherwise the occasional book :)

6. What else would you like to pass on to the Reboots community?

Don't neglect regeneration! Training is much more effective if we give the body the rest and recovery it needs.
