Thomas Morgenstern has recovered from his serious fall in Titisee-Neustadt (GER) and will be able to compete in the 62nd 4-Hills-Tournament starting on Saturday in Oberstdorf.

But the 27-year-old former 4-Hills winner will be dependent on help. Due to his broken finger, he is not able to close the bindings and boots so physical therapist Herbert Leitner will assist him at the start.

Morgenstern was named to the Autrian team of head coach Alexander Pointner together with Gregor Schlierenzauer, Wolfgang Loitzl, Andreas Kofler, Michael Hayboeck, Stefan Kraft and Thomas Diethart.

"My goals are four great competitions, various podium finishes and, if possible, winning the 4-Hills-Tournament for the sixth time", said Pointner.
