Markkleeberg, GER  

Guest of Honor at the German Senior Championships

"It was a great idea that the gymnastics friends from my hometown Halle (Saxonia-Anhalt) picked me up and took me to Markkleeberg (near Leipzig) by car! So I could  I met a lot of good old acquaintances there again, because from the first German National Senior Championships in 2000 on I was actively involved myself and was even able to win 11-tim in a row in my age group. But now, at the age of 96, I don't do any official gymnastics competitions anymore, but I meet old gymnast friends, ... it really lifts my spirits! Gymnastics is not just a sport, it is a special philosophy of life, it was and is simply my life"!
