Tatjana Lofamakanda Pinto (born July 2, 1992 in Münster ) is a German athlete who specializes in sprinting . She was German champion in 2014 , 2016 and 2019 over 100 meters as well as in 2019 in 200 meters and was European champion in 2012 with the 4 x 100 meter relay .
Life and career path
Tatjana Pinto is the daughter of a Portuguese father and an Angolan mother. She grew up in her native city of Münster. In 2012 she completed her high school diploma in social and health care. Pinto studies social work .
Pinto achieved his first international success in the junior division. At the 2010 Junior World Championships in Moncton ( Canada ), she won the silver medal in the 4 x 100 meter relay and finished sixth in the 100 meter run. At the European Junior Championships 2011 in Tallinn ( Estonia ) she won the bronze medal over 100 meters and the title with the relay. The team around Alexandra Burghardt , Katharina Grompe , Tatjana Pinto and Anna-Lena Freese improved the 23-year-old junior European record to 43.42 seconds.
In 2012, Pinto increased her 100-meter best at the Kurpfalz-Gala in Weinheim by 27 hundredths of a second to 11.19 s. In doing so, she fulfilled the qualification standard of the German Athletics Association for the Olympic Games in London and secured her participation. At the European Championships in Helsinki , Pinto won the title in the 4 x 100 meter relay together with Leena Günther , Anne Cibis and Verena Sailer . She finished eighth in the 100-meter run.
At the Olympic Games in London , Pinto reached fifth place in the 4 x 100 meter relay with Günther, Cibis and Sailer. Over 100 meters, she retired prematurely as fourth in her run in 11.39 s. In 2013, she won the bronze medal and the relay title at the U23 European Championships in Tampere (Finland) over 100 meters. In Ulm , she became German champion on the 100-meter course at the 113th German championships in 2014 with a time of 11.20 s.
At the German Indoor Championships in Leipzig in 2016 she was German champion over the 60-meter distance with 7.07 s and moved to third place in the current world rankings behind Dafne Schippers (7.00 s) and Marie Josée Ta Lou (7, 06 s). So she ran the fourth-best time of a German athlete to date. Only the three GDR sprinters Marita Koch (7.04 s), Silke Möller (7.04 s) and Katrin Krabbe (7.06 s) ran faster times. At German indoor championships, only Katrin Krabbe was ever faster. With this performance Pinto managed to get a place in the squad for the 16th World Indoor Championships in Portland , where she was eliminated as the fifth of her semi-final run with 7.22 s.
In Kassel , she was able to repeat her success from 2014 and again became German champion in the 100-meter course at the 116th German Championships in 2016 with a time of 11.22 seconds. She qualified for the European Championships in Amsterdam , where she was sixth over 100 meters and won bronze in the sprint relay. On July 29, 2016, at a meeting in Mannheim , she set a new personal best over the 100-meter distance with 11.00 s and a tail wind of 1.2 meters per second. At the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro , she took fourth place with the German 4 x 100 meter relay. In the 100-meter run she reached the semi-finals.
In 2017 Pinto won the silver medal in the 4 x 200 meter relay in a time of 1: 30.68 min at the IAAF World Relays 2017 in the Bahamas, together with Lara Matheis , Rebekka Haase and Gina Lückenkemper . The team narrowly prevailed against the team from the United States. In Erfurt she took 3rd place at the German championships in the 100 meter run.
In 2018, Pinto won the 60 m title at the German Indoor Championships with a personal best and a championship record of 7.06 s and the 200 m title one day later with a personal best of 23.19 s. With the 4 x 200 meter relay of the LC Paderborn she came in 3rd place. This she achieved months later in August at the European Championships with the 4 x 100 meter relay.
In 2019, as the reigning German indoor champion, Pinto was unable to defend her title over 60 and 200 meters due to problems with the ischial tuberosity and, due to the lack of training, also decided not to start at the European indoor championships and the so-called relay world championships because she is preparing for the world championships in the long term .
At the German championships she won double gold with a season best over 100 and personal best of 22.65 s over 200 meters.
Tatjana Pinto is 1.70 m tall and has a competition weight of 56 kg.
Pinto has competed for the LC Paderborn since 2016. Until 2015 she started for the LG Brillux Münster , which until 2013 was called LG Ratio Münster.
She has been trained by Rana Reider since March 2019, after having previously been supervised by Thomas Prange , by Frank and Elke Bartschat until 2012 and by Thomas Kremer until 2014.
