With the tournament a real highlight is noted for me as a ski jumper in my calendar. Beside the 4 Hills Tournament also the Home World Championship in Seefeld is a part of the highlights of the season and my career. Anyhow, a Home World Championship is a happening, which probably only a few athletes are part of in their career. But now my full attention is focused on the traditional start of the tournament in Oberstdorf.
As every year I am looking forward to the tournament with a lot of excitement, but also a little nervousness, but that’s somehow part of the “myth 4 hills”.
Many thousand fans, this unique atmosphere, the great spirit and the adrenalin, which comes together with the tournament every year, are indescribable feelings. In the matter of sports I still don’t quite know, what exactly this year’s tournament has ready for me. I had to deal with missing consistency during my training and also the desiderated security was a rare guest in my jumps. Nevertheless I had one or the other good jump. That’s what I bring with me to the tournament.
I am looking forward to what’s coming and will try more and more over to gain consistency and security in my jumps to take with me the best I could give from this year’s tournament. However, first Christmas is right around the corner. A festivity, which I spend every year with my family and which I consciously spend in peace, before the tournament starts. Batteries have to be charged again and afterwards qualification starts in Oberstdorf.
I wish you all peaceful holidays, we see each other at the first competitions and I am looking forward to your great support,
