It was no miracle, it was hard work and the luck, that I didn't suffer any severe injuries. The training yesterday and especially today in Seefeld went very well and so it's within reach for me to compete in the WSC. We will see everything else during the training sessions in Lahti. I'm definitely looking forward to participating in Lahti", said the Tyrolean.
