Motivation, self-discipline, and a cup of coffee in the morning. These are the words best characterizing Stina Troest, the Olympic runner who is striving to represent Denmark in the next Olympics in the 800-meter sprint.

CASPER U. MORTENSEN: HANDBALL
Ehrgeiz, Demut und Engagement. Mit diesem Motto ebnete sich der Handballspieler Casper U. Mortensen seinen Weg zum F.C. Barcelona – und erfüllte sich damit einen Kindheitstraum.
Immer noch nicht beeindruckt? Nun, Casper nahm 2016 auch an den Olympischen Spielen in Rio de Janeiro teil, wo er – wenig überraschend – mit der dänischen Mannschaft die Goldmedaille gewann. Erst kürzlich hat er zudem seiner Karriere mit dem Weltmeistertitel bei der Handball-WM 2019 das Sahnehäubchen aufgesetzt.
Seit seinem Wechsel zum FC Barcelona und der Genesung von seiner Verletzung, durch welche er 398 Tage keinen Handball spielen konnte, ist Casper engagierter denn je. Sein "Erfolgsrezept" sind Ausdauer, Konzentration und Teamarbeit. Und nicht zuletzt trägt er unsere DANISH ENDURANCE Kompressionsstrümpfe bei jedem Training und jedem Spiel.
Auf Caspers Instagram und Facebook findest du mehr Einblicke in seine Trainingseinheiten, sportlichen Abenteuer und sein Leben in Barcelona.

ANDERS HOFMAN: PROJECT ICEMAN
Limitations are only perceptions. And if we challenge them, we can prove that we can overcome them.
This is the powerful message Anders Hofman wants to deliver by undertaking the first-ever Ironman distance triathlon in Antarctica, the Iceman, in February 2020.
The so-called “Project Iceman” is not an official race or competition, but a way to prove that every ordinary person can achieve his or her extraordinary dream. By enduring every challenge and by setting no limits, everything becomes possible.
Anders completed the Iceman challenge in February 2020, by swimming 3.8 km, biking 180 km and running 42.2 km in the cold land of Antarctica. It took him 72 hours, 54 minutes, and 9 seconds to complete his project.
