JumpandReach for friends 2017

Almost three weeks passed by since this year’s Ski Jumpers’ Golf Trophy and it was one more time a great day, meeting my ski jumping colleagues and friends beside the hill.

Meeting friends wasn’t only part of the golf trophy, but it also the “heart” of the traditional JumpandReach for friends in Seefeld.

During those three days of our JumpandReach for friends we had time to look back to past season and celebrate our medals and crystal globes together with the JumpandReach-family in familiar atmosphere. It is always great to meet all the other athletes, mentors and friends of the JumpandReach family.

Three very cool days between some hard training sessions and courses – I’m really looking forward being part of it next year again :-)

Wish you a great summer start,



Ski Jumpers‘ Golf Trophy 2017

Like last year, we also had this year our Ski Jumpers‘ Golf Trophy at the Golfclub Zillertal Uderns.
At this kind of different golf tournament we have the possibility to meet our skijumping colleagues from the other nations and talk about different things than ski jumping – this time a lot about Golf 😉

Last year team Austria played against Team Norway. This year the Finns were also part of the Trophy for the first time – a simply good combination. Really nice to meet the guys besides the jumping hill and to get to know each other better.

As in the year before my flightpartner was Anders Fannemel. I have to tell you in advance: I probably played the golf of my life so far. I never played a Par but on that day, I played two. Sorry Anders. But we both had a great golf round and a lot of fun. At the end of the day we were able to take the trophy yet again, so really nothing to complain about on this day 😉

For the upcoming training session in Predazzo, I’ll change my golf equipment against the ski jumping gear. 😉

Wish you all a nice whitsun weekend and a good time!
