Ended his career in the national team with the most successful archer of Germany, Lisa Unruh. He announced this to the German Shooting Association (DSB) on the sidelines of the domestic European Championships in Munich.
The woman in the fisherman’s hat won the first German Olympic medal in the sport with a sensational silver at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and has been the face of archery in Germany ever since. In Tokyo, she then won Olympic bronze with the team. Late last year, the Berliner won the World Cup final in Yankton with a jump-off ten.
“There really can’t be a better ending than this,” said the 34-year-old. At the European Championships in Munich, it was a pleasant and pleasant announcement in the circle of archery selection, tears also shed – tears of experience and joy. She will no longer raise her bow, which she calls “beauty”, at least not in international competitions. “I couldn’t say as much as I wanted to, because otherwise I’d cry, so I made it short and sweet, like Lisa,” said the former competitive swimmer.
National coach Oliver Hayden only had words of praise about the police commissioner, who was voted World Archer of the Year in 2016 and 2018: “Lisa has shaped German archery over the past decade like no other. We are lucky. The team is also the right time to start a new phase of life, from my point of view. After all, she is leaving as a top athlete at the international level after winning the Olympic bronze medal and winning the World Cup final. “
