Nothing is finally decided yet but the eternally young Benni Raich is not ruling out taking part in the World Championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland in 2017. In an interview with the Tiroler Tageszeitung, the 37-year-old Austrian spoke about his current training and future plans that might or might not include one or even more competitive seasons for him.

„I usually keep it that way that I make a decision when it is necessary. I am in training, I am fit but everything’s undecided as of yet“. Raich is quoted on the online portal of the newspaper.

The decisive factor will be if Raich gets the feeling to absolutely want to compete some more or not in the months to come. If this is the case, he does not rule out competing in St. Moritz: „I can see taking part in St. Moritz in 2017. If I do, the goal has to be to compete for medals.“
