Partly cloudy-3° / 8° C Details & further outlook
I was born and grew up in the Olympiaregion and for me the central location and the super infrastructure are what makes the region so special.
SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL, WELCOMING and INDIVIDUAL
I was at high school in 1985 and I remember our holidays were changed so that we could experience the whole thing live. Reinhard Fendrich sang at the opening ceremony and at the time I was a huge fan of Ernst Vettori and Andi Felder! Hermann Weinbuch (German national trainer) won a gold medal in the Nordic Combination and I got to know him then and we‘ve enjoyed a close and friendly working relationship ever since. The World Championships in 1985 turned me into a real fan of Nordic sports and my whole family love to watch the various disciplines on TV.
I love it when athletes and their support teams put their trust in us and 2019 is sure to be something really special. I hope we can celebrate lots of medals – we have the Champagne chilling already!
I hope that the whole region supports the event and that we have lots of visitors and spectators.
