SEBASTIAN DIETZ - World Champion with a European record
At the Para-Athletics World Championships in London, Sebastian Dietz took and therefore defended his World Champion title in his specialist discipline, the F36 shot put, at 15.28 metres. And that's not all: he also set a new World Championships and European record! The world record is 15.34 metres, and is just within reach. "I wanted a world record. But I'm more than happy to have won gold", said the 32-year-old. Sebastian has now been unbeaten for 3 years.
At the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Sebastian was the Olympic shot put winner. He threw the shot to an impressive 14.84 metres, making his Olympic victory perfect! No fewer than five of his shots landed further than the best shot of the silver medallist.
For Sebastian, who suffered a severe cervical spine injury in a road traffic accident in 2004, this further World Championships title is a tremendous victory. But Sebastian is successful in more than just the shot put. In 2012, he took gold for discus throwing at the Paralympics in London, as well as at the World Championships in 2013.
We our proud to be able to support Sebastian with our FOOT-UP and we are delighted by his successes! Since the start of the 2016, we have been supporting him and accompanying him on his sporting career.
