A forum for world class sports wisdom

I love athlete stories. As both an Olympic athlete and later a coach and freelance reporter, I feel like there are too many good athlete stories that are left untold. Not because they are being hidden – but because there is no forum for them.

I wanted to provide this forum, so I created my own show and called it the Athlete Story show and I started collecting the stories that you can see here.

The stories on the Athlete Story show don’t only focus on the medals and the glory. Of course we might also talk results – that is an essential part of competitive sports! But as you can see we go way beyond stats and timelines. We want to get to know about you and what you have at heart 🙂

Be part of this athlete community

Feel free to leave your comments on my YouTube channel and let’s create this Athlete community together. I have a great athlete network in real life already. I really value this and I hope that this community can help you as much as it has helped me to have friends and connections from all kinds of sports and countries.

Athlete Story YouTube Show

Athlete Story is your show if you like to tap into lessons from sports and get inspiration through storytelling. You will find interviews with world class athletes from different sports – and at different stages of their career – from aspiring to retired.

If you want to be one of my guests and tell your story on the show – please reach out on the very top of this page. You will then receive an application form with 3 quick questions to let me know more about you before we set up a Skype date – or a real life date if we can make that happen.

A space for athletes

My Youtube channel is a space to showcase athletes as well as a place for athletes who like to get inspired by Athlete Stories from different sports. They are not all gold medal stories – but as we know, sometimes these stories are even more inspirational than the gold medal story that we usually get to see on mainstream media.


Athlete Story launched with the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang in February 2018. It consists video interviews with world class athletes in all kinds of sports.

I also post videos on athlete skills that are transferable in other parts of life or work.

That playlist is called Athlete Transferable Skills
