Oberstdorf was the expected highlight and is unfortunately as soon as you think about it, already over again. In the run-up, we were of course all curious how it will be with the flair there without fans and without the whole all-around but I must say that the organizer has managed in this difficult time to put a really cool world championship for us athletes on the legs. It’s no secret that we incredibly missed the fans – even more so in such a “Nordic crazy country” like Germany – but the flair there on site was still special.
For me personally, this World Championships had one or the other very cool jump to offer, I tried to approach the jumps and competitions with a lot of courage and to go step by step back in the right direction and I certainly succeeded to some extent. That I come home from Oberstdorf with a medal is also really cool and I am proud of that. It was a very nice moment to win this medal together with my room mates Kraft, Dani and Sara.
In addition to the many great moments at the World Championships, I was also a little disappointed not to be part of the team on the large hill. The fact that I didn’t make it into the team was a bit painful, and then at a World Championships, you’re disappointed as an athlete, but that’s also part of the sport.
All in all, I can look back on a very cool time at the World Championships and I am proud that I was able to compete there for Red-White-Red. After a breather, it’s on to the World Cup finals, the ski flying in Planica. I am really looking forward to it and I will keep you informed.
