Thanks for this great Welcome!!

Also this year, my ski jumping club the UVB Hinzenbach, hold a great welcome party for me at the hill where once everything started. It was amazing how many people came by to congratulate me for the last season. I’m so very pleased to see that those people have so much fun with what I’m […]

And after the season…

… there are other things in the focus than ski jumping. Last week we were at the friendly football match between Austria and Finland in Innsbruck – together with the kids of the JumpandReach “Young Athletes Support” project. A great evening with many kids and one goal of Marko Arnautovic 😉 It’s amazing to see, […]

It’s over! For now.

Again, an exciting and great season lies behind me! Again, a lot of new experiences and again, many new things learned!   But first: Dear Kraftl, Congrats for this amazing season!! It’s totally crazy what you performed during the last months! Cool, to have you as a roommate.   But I also look back at this season […]


A very intense RawAir Tournament is over! Not everything worked out as planned, but the third place at the end in Vikersund in the ski flying competition was amazing! And also both team competitions were really great! It just works very fine at the moment for all of us!   Now I’m looking forward to […]

Lahti – great time!

My second World Championships are over and I can look back really satisfied. Two years ago I wasn’t able to achieve a good result in the single competition and we were the ungrateful fourth in the mixed competition. But this time I did a quite good job in the single competition and I was able […]

Lahti here we come!!

The last weeks weren’t always easy. Things didn’t work out in the way I want them to. But in PyeongChang I found with my systemic coach Patrick the screws, which I have to twist to push my development again in the right direction.   Therefore I’m in an upbeat mood concerning the upcoming World Championships […]

Step by Step

The 4 Hills Tournament already lies some weeks behind us and we are back in the “daily world cup routine”. I’m satisfied with my performance during the last weeks, although I haven’t reached the level I had before my back injury and my illness during the 4 Hills Tournament. Nevertheless I was able to jump […]

4 Hills Tournament 2016/2017

Now, that was a 4 Hills Tournament with crazy ups and downs –after which I really had to rest for one, two days!   After the amazing start in Oberstdorf with the 3rd place and Krafti’s victory, I hadn’t such an easy time jumping in Garmisch. Nevertheless I was satisfied with the result after 2 […]

Engelberg – Christmas – 4 Hills

Dear Friends, exhausting weeks lie behind us! But exhausting weeks are also about to come. Engelberg was really great before we will head to the 4 Hills Tournament. After my back problems during the last weeks, it was just amazing to achieve my fourth world cup victory. Furthermore we could show a really strong team […]

World Cup Season 2016/17 – Here we come!

A new world cup season has started. After the first jumps on snow in Lillehammer, we had the world cup opening in Ruka, Finland. I like to be in Finland, because I like the jumping hills and also the special atmosphere there. The first two competitions were not ideal but I wasn’t unsatisfied with my […]
