Meet the Athlete
Name: Lukas Irmler
Nick name: Luke Skywalker.
When I stepped on my first Slackline in the summer of 2006, it felt totally different to me then any other sport I had tried before. I will never forget that positive feeling after crossing my first Slackline after 3 days of practising. Slacklining quickly became more than just my hobby. It developed into my sport, my passion and finally became my profession in 2011. After finishing my Bachelor of Science in 2011 I decided to dedicate my life completely to my passion Slacklining. Since then I was able to travel the world, realizing my dreams, sharing my passion and knowledge. After I finished my studies 2016 with a Master degree in Economics I commit my time fully to the sport and the work as a professional Athlete, Artist and Consultant.
I got unique chances and never let pass one, so I got two Guinness World Record Titles and numerous Longline Records within the last years. I also became first in several Tricks and Combinations on the Trickline and Highline. Furthermore I have gathered great experience in performing shows all around the globe and have been part of multiple TV productions. Today I am more than happy to share my passion and experiences while giving speeches and presentations as well as performances and workshops.
As a slackliner, speaker and artists Lukas is the most experience worldwide among all slackliners. He started doing shows all around the globe in 2008. Check out his website www.lukas-irmler.com/en for more information about this! Or send him an email at email@example.com.
