NOAH ÖBERGFÖLL WAS BORN INTO A FAMOUS JAVELIN THROWER FAMILY!

Christina Obergföll is a mother for the second time

by leichtathletik.de news

The Javelin-throwing champion of 2013 Christina Obergföll and her husband Boris Obergföll, lead spear-throwing Bundestrainer, have become parents for the second time, last Thursday, son Noah was born (August 17, 2017).

Christina Obergföll, the former javelin throw champion, gave birth to her second child last Thursday. The new family member is called Noah and is like her mother. For the 35-year-old Olympic-Third of 2008 and the Olympic-Second of 2012, it is the second child. Already in 2014, she and her husband Boris Obergföll, even former world class thrower and current Bundestrainer in javelin throw, were parents of son Marlon.

“We are very happy that Noah is finally here,” reports Christina Obergföll brightly. “The birth was great and everyone is healthy, because I am no longer active, so I can concentrate on the family and especially the start time, and I am really looking forward to it.”

Whether the little Noah has a big javelin career ahead of him, the Obergfölls leave open: “We will not dictate to our two boys what sport they should be doing, maybe they will not be interested in sports later Will always have a sports environment through us, I can not imagine that, “explains Christina Obergföll with a grin.
