“We Are All Blended!”: The results are in!

“We Are All Blended!”: The results are in!

Just a few weeks ago, we announced our new campaign with the Borussia Dortmund soccer club, entitled “We Are All Blended.” When Patrick Owomoyela, Mahmoud Dahoud, and Nuri Sahin revealed their roots with MyHeritage DNA a few months ago, they discovered that they have more in common than they realized.

Today is the last day to order MyHeritage DNA and get it in time for Christmas! 

Four additional players — Marwin Hitz, Julian Weigl, Maximilian Philipp, and Mario Götze — were inspired and decided to take a MyHeritage DNA test to reveal their ethnic origins and find out where their ancestors came from.

Since taking the test a few weeks ago, the players have been eagerly awaiting their results.

Watch the players’ reactions and results in the video:

Marwin Hitz

Borussia Dortmund

Marwin was the first to receive his results. Born and raised in Switzerland, he assumed that his results would reflect his presumed Swiss roots. He was pretty surprised to discover that he is 32.1% Italian.

Maximilian Philipp

Borussia Dortmund

Maximilian thought that he might have some English or Irish in his genes, and he was right! He is in fact 21.8% English. Discovering that he is 39.2% Eastern European, however, took him completely by surprise. He is looking forward to exploring his newly discovered origins with his family.

Mario Götze

Mario was surprised to discover that he is a blend of six different ethnicities. He suspected that he was part Italian and he was right. His Ethnicity Estimate showed that he is 10.6% Italian. But what came next completely blew him away — Mario discovered that he is 8.7% North African and 0.8% Nigerian!
