The ups and downs of my season

It has been quite a while since I last informed you about my current situation. I used the last few days to clear my head a bit and to take a break from the World Cup. That’s why I thought now is a good time to bring you up to date. :)

But let’s start at the beginning of the year. As you have surely noticed, the Four Hills Tournament did not go according to my wishes. That’s why I look back on it with mixed feelings. The results were not so good and it was especially frustrating that my jumps lacked stability, self-confidence and self-evidence. It was also an extreme pity that the audience in Innsbruck and Bischofshofen could not be allowed after all, because I already miss the great atmosphere and the fans very much.

Fortunately, things went much better for my teammates during the Four Hills. Michi returned to the World Cup with a top 10 finish after his disk surgery and Daniel won his first World Cup competition! Knowing how hard the two of them worked to achieve this, I’m really happy for them. :)

After the Four Hills Tournament and the additional competition in Bischofshofen, I decided together with my coaches to take a little World Cup break. At the moment I am busy training, together with Michi in Ramsau and also in Bischofshofen. Besides the many jumps, there is also a lot of talking to get back on track. This has really cleared my head and my jumps are becoming more and more confident.

I’m really looking forward to getting back into the World Cup this weekend in Titisee-Neustadt. We have been working on the right things for the last two weeks, so I am confident that everything will go well.

And after that there is only one more weekend before the Olympic Games start. I’m really looking forward to that as well, even though it will of course be completely different from the last time. Nevertheless, I’m already full of anticipation, because the Olympics are always something special and I’m really happy to be part of it.

Those were my main thoughts about the last few days since the Four Hills. As I said, I am really looking forward to my return to the World Cup and I really hope that you will continue to keep your fingers crossed for me.

Krafti :)
