A training of a special kind was on schedule for the German downhill skiers: they took part in a football training with Heimo Pfeifenberger, former national player and coach of the SC Wiener Neustadt.

„The training with Heimo Pfeifenberger was the highlight of the camp“, Josef Ferstl said after the first unit. „He is an extremely cool guy and taught us many tricks. The training was really exhausting but also extremely fun.“

„We were very happy that Heimo was able to take the time to lead a football training session with our speed team“, head coach Mathias Berthold commented. „The boys gave their all and were able to profit from the competence of the former Austrian top scorer and Champions League player.“

In general, Berthold was very satisfied with the quality of the second central endurance training camp and the first-class conditions they encountered at the VIVA sports center in Steinbrunn/Burgenland.
