Peter Starke (coach DTA) said the following about Ingmar:


“My experience with Ingmar is that he is very social and a great guy to have in the group. He is clearly communicative and consistent in appointments. He can play well in service of another. He is open to learn and can cope well with comments and feedback. In a group setting he dares to say what he thinks in a positive way. He is a fine boy, you would enjoy having him as a student and as a player.”
