Next step: Olympic Games

 

It’s a completely new situation for me. Together with my teammates I’m travelling to Korea on Monday. It will be the third time I’m participating at the Olympics, but this time it’s different: I’ve never been to South Korea before. I don’t know the country, I don’t know the Olympic facilities.
This will be a new challenge. When I travelled to Vancouver (2010) and Sochi (2014) I have already won world cup events at the Olympic hills. Now it’s different because I can jump without bias. There is no pressure. Every competition starts at zero. So I’m really excited and can hardly wait to start in Pyeongchang.
The Olympic Games are always something special. At this time the best athletes of the world are located at the same single place – and I’m able to be one of them. For me as a sports crazy person that’s an unbelievable honour and I’m extremely grateful for that. If I have some time off I will also attend some other sport events. I’m looking forward to cheer for my Austrian fellows – especially at the sliding centre where my 18 years old cousin Hannah will participate at the luge race. I will cross my fingers for her. Good luck, Hannah!
Nevertheless I have to focus on my own performance in the first place. My goal is to make some good jumps in Pyeongchang. We had a good training session in Planica last week, the perfect preparation for the Olympics. At the training I have taken the chance to get some information on the Olympic hill from my teammates who had the chance to jump there one year ago. They said the facilities are very modern, but sometimes the wind can blow quite hard. In any case I’m really excited to take some jumps at the Olympcis. Then I will know more about the hill by myself.
At this point I also want to say thank you to my fans. The last weeks haven’t always been easy for me but I have drawn so much strength from your support. Thanks for all the encouraging words. This means so much to me.

Yours
