Hello spring :)

Hi guys,

after the really good end to last season, I’ve really been enjoying spring. Especially because I’ve been pain-free for months now and am really looking forward to preparing for next winter. But first I need to relax a bit and do some cool things away from ski jumping 🙂

The off-season started for me on the ski slopes: Together with the JumpandReach family, I experienced a wonderful day in the Hochzillertal ski resort. This get-together has already become a tradition, so it was really nice that the ski day could take place again. It’s always cool to see everyone again after the season and to catch up – there’s usually not so much time for that in winter… I was especially pleased that I could keep up with everyone on the alpine skis and didn’t have to think about my back.

After that it was time for a holiday! I fulfilled a dream and spent some really cool days in New York. It’s a city I’ve always wanted to see. There, we did a lot of sightseeing, but also just walked through the city and admired the tall buildings and soaked up the “American way of life”. To escape the traffic chaos, we even explored the city by bike – a real experience!

Back home, we have already started preparing for the next season, so I will keep you posted.

See you soon,

My special winter is over

The ski jumping season ended a few days ago and I have to say that, from my point of view, it comes a bit too early. I feel really good physically and would definitely be motivated to hang on a few more weeks, especially since it has been going quite well for me lately. 🙂

But until then it was also a lot of work. Since my disk surgery in October, a lot has happened: Recovery, start of training, first jumps on the hill, comeback at the Bergisel, Conti Cup and then came the Ski Flying World Championships in Vikersund.

The fact that I made it to the Ski Flying World Championships really made me happy and is also a confirmation of my way. Ski flying itself is a really cool feeling and I was also excited to be back on the road with the World Cup team. I’m really satisfied with my 7th place in the individual and I’m really happy for Krafti that he won the bronze medal. It was just a pity that we missed a medal with the team. That would have been another absolute highlight for me personally. Nevertheless, it was a good World Championships for me and I really like to think back.

I really enjoyed the final ski flying events in Oberstdorf and Planica. The weather was great, the fans created an incredible atmosphere and I was able to jump onto the podium with the team at the end. That was almost the perfect end to the season for me.

And when I look back on this journey, I can really say with confidence that all the hard work over the last few months has paid off, even if it wasn’t always easy. So I’m all the happier with my progress, but also a little sad that the season is over.

Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to spring and summer, because there are always some cool things coming up. But before that, I’m going skiing again to enjoy the last moments of winter. I can’t put the skis in the corner that fast ;).

I would also like to thank all of you who have supported me so energetically over the last few months and who have cheered along with me. Thanks also for the numerous messages, reading my blog and following my way since my surgery. That has always really pleased and motivated me.

See you soon and take care

Michi 🙂
