Together with the current German teamchef, Dobbel’s Cento teamed up over 11 years in the sport. The pair claimed the Olympic Gold medal in 2000 in Sydney and were part of the golden European Championships team. In 2000 the combination also jumped to glory in the Aachen Grand Prix. Further they also won the 2002 worldcup finals.
