Each year between June and September, you will come across pictures of Diane on a podium on Facebook. Many of them.
Diane Sadik isn’t your typical 27 years old Swiss woman. With her go-getter attitude, her winning mindset and the hard work she puts in training, you will often come across pictures of Diane with a medal around the neck. Coaching her is a smooth process: design a solid plan, add some sessions with a purpose and you can be assured she will do the workout.
When Diane contacted me at the end of 2015, it was clear that the potential was big, really big. At that time, Diane was already achieving some great results in every activity she had.
With triathlon, climbing, skiing, trail running and hiking going on, Diane needed some serious structure in her training and a race strategy.
2016 was the year of triathlon races, and Diane ended the season with an Age Group victory in a 70.3IM, a 5th place at the Swedish Nationals in Long Distance, a 3rd place overall at the Dansk Invest Series (Sprint/Olympic distance championship) and many victories other local triathlons.
As a coach, you can’t really wish for better. But if it wasn’t enough, Diane succeded in impressing us even more.
Because Diane always has more to give, she also gave a shot at the wilder experience of swimrun. After many victories and podium positions, she ended 3rd at ÖtillÖ Swimrun World Championships in Mixed class and 1st place at ÖtillÖ Germany 1000 lakes the in womens class.
The amount of time dedicated to training to achieve these results? No less than 15 to 25 hours.
In 2017, Diane’s goal is no less than glory. That is the plan. After a year of getting some experience structuring her training and prioritizing her races, Diane is ready to go fo higher goals. Next? Victories in major triathlons and legendary ÖtillÖ.
