1st place at Berlin Masters Cup, 20th Feb.

My first competition of this year, the Berlin Masters Cup, was a great experience and lot's of fun. I hadn't had the normal amount of training, as I've been busy with my studies lately, so it was exciting to see what I could do. With great help from Anna von Boetticher, I got two good trainings before the competition and the strangest thing happened: I was enjoying static!

I did a very comfortable and strong 5'14 in STA at the competition (video coming soon), and was walking around smiling the rest of the day. The dynamic was just gonna be a nice swim to secure my place for the overall ranking, and I came up after 136m. Afterwards I was a little unhappy that I didn't do more, so I'm very eager for another competition now. Finally some good motivation again!

It was the 12th time Berlin Masters Cup was happening, and it was one of my first great competitions back in 2007. This year it was dominated by alot of germans, as well as some great polish diver and the usual danish dynamic guys. The competition was the Indoor German Championship as well, and the new champions are Sergio Martinez Alvarez and Barbara Jeschke.
