Germany’s Nadine Apetz: “I want to get a medal in Minsk on my way to Tokyo”

19 June 2019 News

The German national team has done intensive preparation camps after the Cologne Boxing World Cup in the recent two months. One of their best female boxers Nadine Apetz is aiming for a title at the women’s welterweight (69kg) in the Minsk European Games.

She claimed bronze medal at the Astana 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships and repeated that performance also in the New Delhi 2018 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.

 “The preparations for the European Games went really well and I feel fit and well prepared to this big action. We had an excellent basic training camp in Austria and then sparring with the best teams from Great Britain, Poland, Thailand, Denmark, Norway and Hungary in our Kienbaum Training Centre.

My main sparring partners were Wales’ Rosie Eccles, England’s strong duo Georgia O’Connor and Sandy Ryan, Poland’s Karolina Koszewska, another Polish star Elzbieta Wojcik and Hungary’s young Vivien Budai.

Five of our national coaches as Eddie Bolger, Ralf Dickert, Michael Timm, Lukas Wilaschek and Mike Hanke led our training sessions in the recent two months. For me of course my personal coach Lukas Wilaschek is responsible.

I am expecting tough fights here in Minsk as the quality of the opponents is high and the welterweight (69kg) is stronger than ever. There are only 12 girls in my weight class after the selections but all of them are top fighters and Europe’s bests.

I want to get another medal on my way to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and secure my place among the bests in Minsk. My main rival could be the current European Women’s Champion Elina Gustafsson of Finland but Ireland, Italy and Wales have got world class boxers in my weight class. I am so excited to see what is coming next week and I am really grateful for this amazing experience,”summarized Germany’s Nadine Apetz her opinion about the preparation and what she expects in Minsk.
