About

”The MAX contains all features I missed over the last years during my Paralympic campaigns. I can customize the pages of the display they way I need and that’s a big advantage compared to all devices I ever had.” – Heiko about MAX

Germany’s Paralympic champion Heiko Kroeger started Para sailing at age 7, and was racing on the waters by age 9. Born without a left forearm, Kroeger sails in the 2.4 Norlin OD class – or single-person keelboat event – and is currently sponsored by Audi. The nine-time world champion won his only Paralympic gold at the Sydney 2000 Games, finishing fourth at both Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 before finishing second on the podium at London 2012. At the Athens 2004 Games, he was also Germany’s flag bearer during the Opening Ceremony. Next to his Olympic success, Heiko was 9 times Worldchampion.
