It made her childhood dream come true once before.

But at the Olympics 2021 * in Tokyo, Unruh doesn't just want to build on the success of that time.

She wants to go one better.

Florian Kahllund had missed the qualification for the Olympics *.

Lisa Unruh is all the happier that she can have her husband - who both married in 2020 - with her in Tokyo.

This time it worked with the qualification.

“It is special that the partner is also on the national team and that we can share everything with one another.

All successes, but also defeats, major competitions and now also the Olympic Games ", enthused Lisa in the

SID

interview:" That is very, very nice. "

Lisa and Florian Unruh hope for a historic moment in archery

And on Saturday the dream couple in German archery could write the next fairy tale if the Olympics are not canceled at short notice.

Because the mixed competition is also Olympic for the first time, Lisa and Florian Unruh could shoot together for precious metal on Saturday.

"Certainly it would be very nice to be able to shoot with Flori Mixed, but there are also two other strong shooters who are also possible," said Lisa.

While Florian is the only German man eligible to start the mixed competition, his wife has yet to assert herself within the German team against Michelle Kroppen and Charline Schwarz.

Only the best of the individual qualification on Friday will get the starting place.

“Now I am expected to get another medal.

And I want that too, ”said the Berliner at
