4 Hills tournament I am coming!

It’s incredible how fast time passes by. It’s December again, the new season is full in swing and the 4 Hills tournament is right around the corner. An exciting time for every ski jumper.

So far I have been satisfied with my performance this weltcup – especially because may jumps gained in consistency. Of course you can always improve, but I think it’s a good base for the upcoming tournament. Especially the victory in Nizhny Tagil, in Russia, encourages me for the following competitions. Also with my two places on the podium in Engelberg and Klingenthal I am confident about the next competitions. A good sign for the 68th 4 Hills Tournament.

In only a few days qualification in Oberstdorf and then I know I have to give everything! My personal goal is to begin the tournament with a good start, hold my consistency and gain in security. Especially because of the competition in Garmisch I am very excited – let’s just say our relationship never has been the best one 😉 Therefore I hope I will not repeat my last year’s result.

But before the tournament starts I am looking forward to enjoying Christmas. It is my most favourite time of the year. I spend my holidays traditionally with my family, my girlfriend and delicious food.

I am already looking forward to a hopefully unforgettable and successful tournament with you.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

My 17th world cup victory

What a start in the season…after a lot of trembling and performances, which I have not always been satisfied with, I was now able to show a good accomplishment in Nizhny.

Until December the season was full of varying performances. While I was not very satisfied about my performance in Wisla, I could come back to my usual shape in Ruka, Finland. Nizhny therefore of course is the high point of the start in this season. In spite of bad wind conditions, I could holt the consistency in my jumps and was happy about two top-jumps about 140 and 134,5 meters and the gold medal!

With this great results I am, of course, looking forward to the tournament with a lot of motivation. Nevertheless, I will give everything during the next training, because at the tournament the dices will be thrown again.

I keep you up.
