“Season 2021 ✔️ Not gonna lie, I’m not satisfied with my races this year. I’ve worked harder than ever before day in and day out pushed my limits in every workout and made so many sacrifices. It was not an easy year with my Covid Infection and torn ligaments but nevertheless, I know what I am capable of and I‘m hungry for more,” Schmidt wrote on Instagram in August 2023.

“Now, I’m going to take a break and I’m looking forward to coming back feeling fresh and ready to train hard again.”
