Career[edit]

Single skating[edit]

Hocke began skating as a four-year-old in 2005, learning at an ice rink in Wilmersdorf.[4][5] In January 2014, she won gold in the under-13 novice girls category at the German Youth Championships.[6]

In the 2015–16 season, Hocke won junior medals at three international competitions – silver at the Volvo Open Cup in Riga, gold at the NRW Trophy in Dortmund, and gold at the Santa Claus Cup in Budapest. In January 2016, she won the junior silver medal at the German Youth Championships. In February, she represented Germany at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics in Hamar, Norway. Competing in the individual ladies' event, Hocke placed 15th in the short program, 10th in the free skate, and 11th overall. She was a member of Team Determination in the mixed NOC team event, replacing Kaori Sakamoto who withdrew due to injury.[7] She placed 6th in her segment and her team finished 8th.[8] She is coached by Manuela Machon in Berlin.[9]

Pair skating[edit]

In September 2014,[10] Hocke teamed up with Juri Gnilozoubov to compete in pairs, training in Berlin.[11] They placed fourth in junior pairs at the International Challenge Cup in February 2015.

Hocke and Ruben Blommaert announced their partnership on 9 February 2017.[12] A year later in february 2018 the pair competed at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang and managed to make it in the Olympic Final, finishing 16th place. At the following World Championships in march 2018 they finished 13th place. A great accomplishment for a pair that has only skated together for one year.
