In the world of swimrun we always find interesting athlets. One german guy that has been competing frekvently during the last couple of years is Markus Rössel, from the team “German Sparkle Party“. We meet him after finishing this years Ö till Ö on Utö. Here is our interview with the Athlete, Journalist and so much more.
Tell me about your background as a Swimrunner?
I grew up in a pretty active household. Apparently my first spoken word was “ball”. My parents took me along on all kinds of outdoor undertakings such as hiking trips, skiing and so on. I had to spend countless weekends on tennis courts as they both played for a long time. Unexpectedly for a German kid I took on football and played this beside other sports such as mountain biking, table-tennis and skater-hockey for a pretty long time.
