So far I’m enjoying it, I feel like I can improve and I’m not at my limit yet. So I hope the health will hold and I will be able to show some nicer races,” said the thirty-three-year-old competitor.

The German won awards for being the best downhill skier of his life, he won the world title in the sprint in canoe and silver at the World Championships in classic downhill. “The whole season has been absolutely amazing. I kept waiting for this win to end, that I couldn’t win everything the whole season. I’m very happy about that,” he said.

As well as European gold and world silver among her peers, she has also had success among adults, winning gold and silver at World Cup events. “I’m very happy about that. After all, our U23 team is full of very successful competitors, we have three more European champions. That’s why I really value first place among them,” he said in a press release.
