General
NEW CLUB AND COACH
In December 2020 he announced he was leaving TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen after eight years at the club. He joined Sprintteam Wetzlar, and also began training in London, England, under coach Steve Fudge. "Leverkusen was my sporting home and supported me from day one, not only in sports but also in my private life. Leverkusen will always remain a part of me and I'm proud of that. The Wetzlar sprint team is top-notch and has a motivated team behind it. I really felt like working with them. After the first conversation I immediately felt very comfortable and felt that they fully supported me on my new path, namely to train with Steve Fudge in England in the future. For me, I now have to go full throttle because I want to run for the medals in Tokyo [at the 2020 Paralympic Games]." (Facebook page, 01 Dec 2020; Sprintteam Wetzlar Instagram profile, 01 Dec 2020)
