Other information
OLYMPIC FAREWELL
Following the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, where he won bronze in the synchronised 3m springboard with Lars Rudiger, he said he was not planning to compete at the 2024 Games in Paris. "Three years doesn't sound like a lot, but to me it sounds like a decade. When I think of all the injuries, sweat, tears and pain, I absolutely cannot imagine Paris 2024. For me, saying goodbye to the Olympics was very emotional. I've competed at four Olympic Games and won three medals in three different disciplines, the third a full twelve years after the first medal - an absolutely crazy Olympic career for which I am very grateful."
