2. What was your best (or funniest) vaulting moment?

Both WEG 2010 and WEG 2014 were really my best moments so far. In 2010 it was my first WEG for individual and I exceeded my own goals. In 2014 I was able to compete in all 3 events (individual, PDD and squad) this was a dream come true and very special to me!

3. What do you expect from the FEI World Equestrian Games 2018?

I had some big goals for 2018 but due to a lot of circumstances I had to adjust my plan for competition this year a lot. And therefore my season before WEG felt much different than expected. At this point My goal is to make a strong impression at WEG and be at my best – do what I know I am capable of!

4. What’s your freestyle theme 2018 and why?

My freestyle theme is Queen of Spiders. It’s a dark piece of music and I’m really enjoying this different style for this year. In previous years I did a lot of pretty freestyles or very upbeat/happy. So I like to play with different styles and pushing myself artistically!
