Doesn’t work very well at the moment…

It is really dreadful at the moment. My plan and my concept for this and the coming days would have been great. I have seldom felt as comfortable on my first jump with at ski flying as I did right from the start here in Planica – it would have gone great with 239 meters.

Apparently, it just doesn’t want to be right now. First Corona, now my back reports with the same problem as in summer. I’ve actually got the physical history of my back under control quite well. However, it seems that after these two weeks without burden and without training, the body reacted again.

That now shows and unfortunately also confirms what I said 4 or 5 weeks ago, namely that I will remain a “surprise bag” this season and that I have to see how my body plays along with this strict program.

I will continue to try to get a grip on this physical story – on the one hand it is about structural issues and also “tensions”. For this reason I will have this clarified by a doctor in Innsbruck today and everything else will be revealed.

It is not yet clear whether I will be able to compete in the team competition on Sunday – the next two days will tell.

Bye for now,

Yours Krafti.
