A BIG DREAM
The very first time her parents brought her to the artistic gymnastics training, Franziska Roeder was just one year old. Already back then she had been a bundle of energy and needed something to let it all out. Meanwhile the fourteen-year-old from Hanover exercices six to seven times per week in the gym of her club TV Badenstedt. Like the other girls in her group as her main goal she has set to herself the admission to the German national team, a big dream hopefully becoming true one day.
When she allowed me in autumn 2011 to accompany her for a little while with my camera she also participated in the annual qualification round for the national team, but wasn't able to reach her goal yet. What she nevertheless achieved was a new personal best performance, which brought her one step closer and which made her very happy, too.
