My name is Pascal Unbehaum, I’m 21 years old and I grew up in Erfurt, Germany, where I still live.
Since I was a kid I have enjoyed running. When I was 7, I started to play field hockey, and that was the start of my professional sports career. At the time, I wanted to prove something to myself, so when I was 10 I decided to start doing athletics. I was still really enthusiastic about running, but I started to specialize in the 400- and 800-meter races, where I had already achieved national and international success. One of the unforgettable moments was when I won a bronze medal for the 4×400-meter relay competition at the 2015 European Championship in Sweden.
To achieve more success, I need everything from training and right nutrition to a good work out. And since I train at least twice a week, I’ve been searching for something that would optimize my nutrition to be fit and at the same time be able to concentrate on achieving the best performance possible. For these reasons, I like to cook and come up with new recipes. But sometimes it’s hard to cook food that contains all the required nutrients needed for a professional athlete. That’s why I’m really glad I have MANA!
