Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began diving in 1995 in Berlin, Germany.
Why this sport?
When she was young she wanted to become a professional gymnast, but coaches who watched her perform suggested she should switch to diving. She has always been fascinated by the way someone can do so many rotations in such a limited time.
General Interest
Hero / Idol
Chinese diver Tian Liang. (Athlete, 23 Feb 2007)
Injuries
She required surgery on a back injury in late 2013 after one of her inter vertebral discs became dislodged. Although she returned to competition in July 2014, the injury meant she had to stop diving from the 10m platform for the rest of her career due to the risk of injuring her back again. (zdfsport.de, 13 Jun 2015; berliner-zeitung.de, 20 Aug 2014)

A neck muscle injury stopped her diving in the individual qualifying heats of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. (rp-online.de, 08 Aug 2012)
Awards and honours
She was named the 2003 Junior Female Athlete of the Year in Berlin, Germany. (Athlete, 23 Feb 2007)
Other information
RETIREMENT
She retired from the sport after finishing ninth in the 3m springboard at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "I think it's a good farewell. I am satisfied with this result to say goodbye." (fr.de, 28 May 2017; etwasverpasst.de, 15 Aug 2016; swp.de, 14 Aug 2016)
