DESCRIPTION
On the one hand 100m hurdler Pamela Dutkiewicz is a professional athlete to the fullest and on the other hand she is girly as well. One does not exclude the other. Dutkiewicz is targetting the Berlin 2018 European Championships this year at the Olympic Stadium 7-12 August as part of the multisport European Championships.

„Once standing on the track, I give all I’ve got! I sweat and push myself to the limits! Of course, I’m having my psychological tricks I rely on. There is a specific picture of a lioness in my head, which I always remember. At first, Lions are calm, then they focus their prey and finally attack with a burst of speed at the right moment. Sprinting feels similar to me. Like the maximum explosion after complete silence. I think I’m a normal girl. I like to dress up, do my hair and paint my nails. Some people call me 'girlie‘ for fun and I think that this is completely okay! I’m both, a passionate professional athlete and a ‚girlie‘. One does not exclude the other.“
