Best Athlete of the International School of Stuttgart
SOCCER: At the Age of 6 or 7 Orlin started playing soccer with his dad in South Africa. At the age of 7 he could, as he told us, break field hockey goals with his kick. Now he plays in the school's varsity team and has become one of the most important players on the team. He is very creative and a great person to play with.

TENNIS: As he told us explicitly, without joking, he has been playing tennis since first grade. In summer he plays Tennis every day for 3 hours with a PRO coach in Bulgaria since he was in 6th grade.

BASKETBALL: Orlin just joined the basketball team this year and as eye witnesses tell, he might not be the best basketball player on this world but he works for his success.

TRACK AND FIELD: All we know about his Track and Field abilities is that his personal record lies at 9.53 min for 3000 meters. LONG JUMP: In 8th grade Orlin used to jump somewhat about 5.22 meters. However, he says that now he is less flexible, because he has gained weight, and could probably not do it anymore.

SWIMMING: In 8th grade, he made it to the provincial finals in Canada with 4 x 100m freestyle relay twice. He claims that his best time was 27.13s for 50 meters and 57.57s for 100 meters.

OTHER SPORTS, he claims to be able to play ;) : Ping Pong, Badminton, all Track and Fields events, American Football, Billiards.
