Laura Ludwig starts road to Rio 2016 with new partner
The 21-year-old Walkenhorst confirmed the decision to beach-volleyball.de on September 17.
"Yes that's right, I will play with Laura next season,” she said. “Sure, it's always been my goal to play along the top. That it has now come to pass after a year is, of course, great. I am strongly motivated and I want to make a leap forward."
Ludwig also expressed her eagerness to start this new direction, although she feels the loss of her nine-year partnership with Goller.
"It's always sad when things go after such a long time to end,” said Ludwig. “I am very proud of everything that I could get along with Sara. Especially this year's London Olympics were for me a great experience. Now I'm looking forward to new challenges. I am highly motivated, and ready to tackle the next four years once again with a new partner."
