Life is Not Always a Beach (Project Teaser)

Laura Ludwig - European Champion, World Champion, Olympic Champion. She always lived her dream - and still does so: After splitting up with her former beach volleyball partner Kira Walkenhorst (Kira had to finish her career because of injuries) with whom she shared so many successes, Laura is again in the track. Meanwhile, Laura Ludwig is also mother and lives together with her scottish husband Imornefe Bowes. And she is already again in the center of beach volleyball action, together with her new partner Margarete Kozuch. Laura Ludwig is definitely one of the greatest german sports woman, one of the best beach volleyball players worldwide and an idol for the youth. It can hardly be overestimated how important such positive biographies are for a modern, multicultural society. But what will a champion do after having reached the peak ...? "Life is Not Always a Beach" is aiming at the "human issues" and at the story behind the story.
