Sifan Hassan goes for world record at the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON
It is highly likely that for the first time in many years a woman will produce the highlight of the 39th edition of the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON. It is the Dutch European record holder Sifan Hassan who heads the start list of Sunday’s race. Her goal is to improve her personal best of 65:15 on the fast Berlin course.
The quest for fast times begins
As in previous years, numerous top athletes will be using the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON Inline Skating to launch their season. While some of the top skaters have already completed numerous kilometers of training in warmer regions, others were still on the ice until recently. The Berlin spring classic is thus even more important as the first chance to see how prepared they are.
Successful despite double duties
The 25-year-old Katharina Rumpus of the Powerslide Matter World Team is considered to be one of the fastest female inline skaters in Germany. She has already won the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON four times. Despite intensive, time-consuming training, she also successfully completed her studies last year. We asked last year's winner what she is doing and what she has planned for the upcoming races.
