Two different German teams in Einsiedeln and Courchevel
Two different teams will represent the German Ski Association (DSV) in the two upcoming FIS Grand Prix competitions in Einsiedeln, Switzerland and Courchevel, France.
"We are currently in an intense training phase. Between the two Grand Prix competitions we will have another training camp in Seefeld, where we also want to jump on the hills of the 4-Hills-Tournament. That's why the team looks different at the Grand Prix in Einsiedeln and Courchevel", head coach Werner Schuster explains in a release of the DSV.
"Marinus Kraus, Karl Geiger and Markus Eisenbichler will form the back bone of the team. They will compete in Einsiedeln and also in Courchevel. Also the two youngsters, Daniel Wenig and Dominik Maylaender will take part in both events. They have presented themselves in a good shape recently and will get the chance to compete with the world's best. Richard Freitag and Andreas Wank will complete the team in Einsiedeln, Andreas Wellinger and Michael Neumayer will then jump in Courchevel", said the Austrian.
Severin Freund will not take part in the competitions in Switzerland and France. After his tenth place at the GP opener in Wisla the ski flying World Champion will focus on training now and compete again in fall.
