hep sports team Creates Sustainable Support for Young Talents
If you want to reach the top of the world as an athlete, you need time, first-class equipment and a strong team. This is exactly what the hep junior team has been offering since 2019 – with success. Anne Reischmann has proven that. She made the jump from the junior team to the professional selection of the hep sports team in 2020.
The hep junior team currently competes in the short distance. The team’s declared goal is to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and in international ITU competitions..
hep sports team manager Ronnie Schildknecht is looking forward to the newly formed team: “With the new athletes comes a fresh wind with a lot of potential into the hep junior team. I see the special strength of the squad currently in the short distance with the goal of an Olympic qualification.
In addition, Annabel, Ben and Katharina as individuals with their personal attitude are also something very special and an enrichment for the entire team. At this point we also say goodbye to Malte Plappert, Fabian Eisenlauer and Chris Trunk who will leave the hep junior team.“
Young, Ambitious and Committed Reinforcement in the hep junior team
Katharina Möller: The 21-year-old communications student recently completed her basic training as a sports soldier and trains at the state base in Freiburg. Her achievements include an eleventh-place finish at the Junior European Championships and the German runner-up title in 2019. In her everyday life, it is important to her to help shape a future worth living through conscious decisions.
Anabel Knoll: The Ingolstadt native already competed at the Olympic Games in Tokyo last year. After studying biology in the USA, she is specializing in biodiversity and ecology in her master’s degree program in Bayreuth. With her expertise, she wants to contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and endangered ecosystems.
Ben Bettin: Ben is from Berlin and at the age of 21 has already had his first successes in the First Triathlon Bundesliga. He is currently studying physics as a sports scholar at the University of Boulder, Colorado. For him, sustainability means thinking about the impact of one’s own actions on people and the environment – today and in the future – and how compatible alternatives can be found for the benefit of all.
