Before the start of the Four Hills Tournament, Germany's best ski jumper Karl Geiger is confident that the successes will soon return.
"Our potential is high and we performed extremely well in training. But we haven't quite got our horsepower down yet. I think it's only a matter of time before one or the other succeeds," he said 29-year-old violinist in an interview with the "Augsburger Allgemeine". You have to "work, work and work" because jumping is "not so easy and fluffy at the moment".
Unlike in previous years, this winter Geiger is not among the narrowest circle of title contenders on the tour, which begins on December 29 with a competition in Geiger's home country. Instead, Geiger has other favorites on the list. "Clearly the overall World Cup leader Dawid Kubacki from Poland, the Norwegian Halvor Egner Granerud and Anze Lanisek from Slovenia. If you want to win the tour, you have to outperform this trio first," explained the Allgäu native.
