Athlete Mathias Mester
Date of Birth: 15/09/1986
Sport: Javelin, Short Put, Discus throw
'Nothing is impossible' is an attitude Mathias Mester applies to everything in life. His achievements in sports perfectly demonstrate this. Mathias is a multiple World and European Champion in 3 athletic disciplines (shot put, discus throw and javelin throw), as well as a Paralympic silver medallist.
During his career, he set himself new sporting goals, again and again. His ambition remains untainted. At the same time, he is very open about his stature and he is a strong advocate of inclusion in sports. He also shines as a presenter and entertainer outside the world of sport.
Mathias has always considered himself to be a “funny bird”, and it’s exactly this sense of humour that helped him to pursue his seemingly impossible goals. “If you ask me, you should have fun in all you do. I feel it's very, very important that you love doing something and that you go for it 100%. And above all, some small advice I always like to give, you shouldn't let other people talk you into things. If you have a goal, then you should work towards it and don’t allow your self-esteem to be ruined by other people saying you can't do whatever. In my opinion, you can somehow go your own way, if you just believe in yourself and keep your eye on the goal.”
