Skandinavien Ole ;-)

Looks like that Norway and Finland is a good place for me! :-) After the second place in Trondheim, I also could show a very good performance at the legendary Vikersund Bakken. Again a second place and new Austrian record with 246,5m – so awesome and an indescribable feeling to fly through the air for such a long time!!! Whereby the most important fact is that I could take again the room record from Michl. 😉

And also Finland was definitely worth a journey. After the places 11 and 8 in Lahti, I was able to jump – after a 11th place in the first round – on a third place in Kuopio and therefore could stand on the podium again and this with my room buddy Michi. That was just great!! But I have to say, the show Michl put on the last days was unbelievable. 3 competitions – 3 victories. Hats off and congratulations!!

Now I’m really excited about the remaining competitions of this season. Thanks to the short break, I’m still feeling really fit. This weekend we will directly travel to Almaty and then continue in Wisla, Titisee-Neustadt and eventually finish the season with some ski flying in Planica. So there are still some cool weeks coming up!

So, keep your fingers crossed! :-)

Norway Tour

After my short break at home second last weekend, I already had two world cups stations in Norway on my schedule. The break did me a power of good! I noticed that I had to recharge my batteries and therefore I spent some days at home but also completed some training sessions.

And it went already very well in Oslo. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to compete with the best nations in the team competition but my personal performance put me in a positive mood. Sadly the single competition had to be cancelled due to the dense fog. Ski jumping only works out if the judges can see our jumps. 😉

Luckily I could take up my good shape from Oslo also In Trondheim and I’m very happy with my second place behind Peter Prevc.

Now it’s time for some ski flying again. It will be my first time at the huge hill in Vikersund and my colleagues told me to take additional underpants with me to the jumping hill. 😉 But I’m just looking forward to go ski flying again and of course I will try to beat Michi’s room record of 241,5m. 😉

So keep your fingers crossed!
