Schmidt, a social media influencer, is no stranger to the fashion world. She is a Puma-sponsored athlete, and has collaborated with a number of fashion and beauty brands in various posts on Instagram.

In late August, Schmidt took to Instagram to announce she was “taking a break” from track and field after admitting she was “not satisfied” with the outcome of her Tokyo Olympics run.

Schmidt traveled to the Summer Games, but never got a chance to compete.

The German team was disqualified in the mixed 4x400m relay for making contact with the Jamaican team. Then, Schmidt also failed to secure a spot in the preliminary 4x400m relays. 

Though, Schmidt’s “offseason” recently ended.

“Preparation for 2022 has started,” she shared on Instagram Sept. 20, alongside a snap of her on a track.

“Can‘t wait for new challenges and pushing my limits.”

She added on Wednesday: “I didn‘t come this far to only come this far. The road continues.”
