After Gustav Iden as a new addi­tion to the profes­sional team, the hep junior team now also receives ener­getic rein­for­ce­ment. Anabel Knoll, Olympic parti­ci­pant from Tokyo, Katha­rina Möller and Ben Bettin will become part of the junior squad which also includes Jannik Schaufler and Simon Hense­leit. Thus, the hep sports team is well prepared for the upco­ming season.

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.

Laura Philipp and Sebas­tian Kienle Compe­ting in March
A season with two Ironman world cham­pions­hips is unique and makes 2022 an incredibly special compe­ti­tion year. Laura Philipp will be the first to start the season at Ironman 70.3 Dubai on March 5. The two hep compe­ti­tions “hep Triathlon Heil­bronn powered by Audi“ on June 12, 2022 and the “Chal­lenge Roth powered by hep“ July 3, 2022 on are also fixed dates in the calendar of the hep sports team.
