The season has only seen four competitions yet and there’s already a big spectacle awaiting us with the 4 Hills Tournament. The 68th edition will again fascinate fans and athletes and will guarantee a great atmosphere.
Of course I am not travelling to the 4 hills as a favorite. But I will try to work calmly on my concept and towards my goal, despite all the hype around the competitions. Maybe the hills in Innsbruck and Bischofshofen will help me a little, because they are both ski jumps that I really like.
Up until now my performances in the World Cup were a little like a roller coaster ride. When looking at the results in the single competitions its rank 36, 21, 13, 35, 18 and 34. Ups and downs with partly good approaches, but also some jumps far from satisfactory. At the moment it’s difficult for me to say where I am at exactly. My performances are fluctuating a lot, but my goal stays the same: placing myself in the top 20 on a constant basis. Even if I have already achieved that on a few occasions, my flight system and my jumps just need to become steadier.
But before it is all about results and meters on the hill, Christmas at home is up to come. Thoughtful, within the family and with delicious food we will spend Christmas without any hectic as every year.
With this in mind I wish you a merry Christmas time and we will see us again fully motivated at the 4 hills in Oberstdorf.
