Lena Schöneborn, born April 11, 1986 in Troisdorf, Germany is a pentathlete who won the gold medal in the Modern Pentathlon at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She is living in Berlin and besides competeing in the pentathlon she is studying Marketing. After Lena had tried many different sports such as gymnastics, tennis and athletics, she spent ten years with the swimming club SpVgg Lülsdorf-Ranzel. For more training opportunities in 1999 she joined the team competitions of the Association and their coach Torsten Fischer on SV Hellas Siegburg. In addition, she started training sessions in the SSF Bonn. After she attended only the beginning of the floating units, she gradually increased a the running and shooting disciplines. It was followed by lessons in fencing and in the year after her first riding experiences.

For some time she kept her focus even when swimming, until she was finally fully devoted to the modern pentathlon. What she loves so much about the modern pentathlon? She loves the diversity and versatility of the so-called different individual sports not only for the body, but for the mind as well. No boredom or monotony arises in practice. The time that the others spend for a single discipline, I can split on five different disciplines. She also loves the thrill that keeps her the whole day of competition on high voltage. Beyond the passion for the sport itself, among the competitors there also internationally a very friendly, almost family atmosphere - fast friendships occuring across continents. The modern pentathlon enables me to collect through competitions and training camps all over the world, impressions of the cities, people and cultures. Once I started this fascinating sport cast a spell, which I probably will never get rid of ever again.

Lena earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the BSEL and completed the Master's program in International Marketing Management at HWR Berlin. She has been awarded the Silver Laurel Leaf in 2008, Order of Merit of the Federal State of Berlin in 2008, Golden chicken as "Newcomer of the Year 2008", fourth of choice for "Athlete of the Year 2008", second the vote for "Junior Sportsman of the Year 2007", third of the elected "Junior Sportsman of the Year 2005".
