Two big goals left. Tobias Angerer wants medals from Val di Fiemme and Sochi.

At the summer festival of Tobias Angerer’s fan club at Chiemsee, the German Cross-Country star was talking about goals for upcoming years and preparation for next season.

New motivation

While members of his fan club were celebrating at Lake Chiemsee, Tobias Angerer answered questions of Oberbayerischen Volksblatt. Angerer confirmed he wants to continue until the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014. "For the last three years of my career I’ve been seeking new challenges, and these are medals in Val di Fiemme and Sochi," said Angerer. He made a first step in the direction scoring second place in the mini-tour, as part of the first central performance tests of the German Ski Association.

"Stand behind it differently"

Angerer’s family situation changed in September when he became father for the second time. He has also changed a lot in training. Angerer returned to his coach from junior times.

"I am convinced about it, and that is why I stand behind it differently,” says two-time overall World Cup winner. Angerer ended cooperation with long-time coach Cuno Schreyl after last season. "I had a really good talk with him, and I owe him a lot," quoted Angerer.

Tobi Angerer plans to train at home for two weeks before he joins 30+ training group with Jens Filbrich and Axel Teichmann at the high altitude training camp in Toblach.
