And once more another season is in the books. It was a very exciting but without any doubt an eventful season for me and the whole team.
A season that was again one with a lot of highlights for all of us. For sure the season was quite all about the Olympics and there were already a lot of thoughts on it during the preparation in summer.
But the season wasn’t only about the Olympics. With the ski flying world championships and the all year highlight, 4 hills tournament, this season had a lot to bring up for the whole team.
My season started well. I would almost say the season began as the last one ended. But unfortunately, and that is also human, I had a tough time in the mid of the season and had to fight hard. That this fight found his peak during the 4 hills was hard but that is also part of the game. At the ski-flying world championships I was in better shape with better feeling and in the end it was a very good 4th place. Summing up the season it felt like one of 100 4th places this season ;).
My first Olympic Games were also not that easy for me. I felt a lot better than it was shown on the result list. It was amazing to be part of the Olympic team and wear Austrian colours and show them to the world.
With the raw air and the season finale in Planica I had a really good feeling and flying was kind of „easy-going“. That was really fun and for my opinion the season could have lasted a lot longer. At the end of the season I look back to a lot of great moments, several places on the podium and several top rankings.
The next days I will take a bit of free time, go on holidays, be around in nature at home, do some mountain biking and enjoy spring with is great weather before we start training in about a month.
I wish you a great time in the meantime, a beautiful spring and thanks a lot for keeping your fingers crossed all over the season.
