DESCRIPTION
There is no career without "obstacles". Last year, Gesa Krause faced some of those obstacles during the World Champs in London. This is a shout out to all of you being there when one is down! Krause is targetting the Berlin 2018 European Championships this year at the Olympic Stadium 7-12 August as part of the multisport European Championships.

„First I was frustrated and sad about what happened. Right the next day I went for a run but quit after 2 or 3km, because I just didn’t feel like running and was annoyed, sad, disappointed and thought there’s just no point in training today.
My parents and my boyfriend Marc told me that day: “Take a look at the internet. You have received so many messages. Read them, that will lift you up.“ I said: “I don’t care what is said on Social Media.“ Of course I was wrong here, as it turned out that everyone was on my side. But in the first moment I was embarrassed that the whole world had seen me falling on my face. The reactions, however, were not negative at all. They were very positive, saying: “We are proud of you that you didn’t give up and kept on fighting!” I am incredibly grateful for that!"
