Who are Nataliia Dobrynska & Katja Fenn?
Let me introduce you, so you can find out who are Nataliia Dobrynska & Katja Fenn?
She is the 2008 Olympic heptathlon champion, holds the best in shot put and the world record best in indoor penthalon! Nataliia is from the Ukraine and she was here at Brennia Kottefaru with her husband for a holiday. As her husband is a PADI rescue diver Nataliia was keen to try diving too. Being sportive and competitive, she picked up diving in no time and with her beginners’ luck we straight away saw about 10 turtles, a grey reef shark, lobsters and plenty of schooling fish on her second dive.
I had to google to find out which events are part of the women’s outdoor hepthalon:
- 100 m hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 m, long jump, javelin throw as well as 800 m
and indoor penthalon:
- 60 m hurdles, long jump, shot put, high jump and 1000m
I am totally impressed.
Katja is the patisserie chef at the famous Coco Beach in Ibiza. As it is currently closed she took her culinary skills to the Maldives. Just to throw a few names… in Ibiza she has served German celebrities like Helene Fischer, Boris Becker and baked a birthday cake in the shape of a car for Verona Pooth’s son. She also worked together with German TV Chef Stefan Marquard.
Katja joined the chefs of the Brennia Kottefaru kitchen to prepare sweet delights like the Engadiner nut tart, blueberry mousse cake, white chocolate cheese cake, Sacher cake, raspberry mascarpone, maracuja mango panacotta, cantuccini and more. We tried all her delicious creations and promise you – they are all our favorites! For 2 weeks the Brennia chefs and Katja learned from each other and worked the ovens of the bakery together.
And what do these ladies have in common? Natalia and Katja are divers and both dived together with us here at Brennia Kottefaru in the Raa Atoll. Follow this link to find out more who are Nataliia Dobrynska and Katja Fenn.
It was a great pleasure diving with you and we hope to see you again!!
