Felix, you've come to far to shoot?
As a child, I played football at SV Wörth and also with the normal floor and started shooting. Then, a talent was a sighting, I have tried to far shoot, it was fun for me, and since 2017 I'm now almost only shoot Far.
what's your personal best wide?
So, just under 120 metres.
How can you train for far to shoot? The surfaces in ice rinks are usually not so long.
I train on Asphalt, I'll do that throughout the year, usually on Sunday in Parking lots of large markets. What relates to the Eistraining in the Winter, so the Association regular times organized in the forest second ice rink. Since we do not take other plates, so that it would go this far.
competitions are held on Asphalt and ice in Austria, often on natural ice, that is on frozen lakes. Which do you like more?
clear the Asphalt. The ice cream is already a huge transition. And you have also other shoes with Spikes.
You have a great season Aicher-Cup sets, including the team title at the European Championships, the singles title at the DM, and the victory in the Max. In the single, it didn't work out in the EM space five as well. What was going on?
I can do it myself, to be honest, not explain. I was with the feet a little too slowly, then have crept in even technical errors. In such competitions the day the form is usually decided, and has not voted for me.
The current season had to be due to Corona prematurely. You were at the Max-Aicher-Cup-series – the earlier Germany-Cup was in the lead and are now been declared the winner.
Da, it went very well, I had won up to the time of the crash, five of the six tournaments.
would Then be able to go anyway, nothing wrong, right?
That would still be tight. I had a nine-point lead, two Cups still stood, where the last Cup twice the number of points awarded would have been. But I am, of course, about the total victory.
It was rumored that you wanted to stop. Is there something to it?
Yes, I wanted to stop – temporarily at least. I was really on Doubt. I move now from the U 16 to U 19. Since I'm in the first year, hardly a Chance. I wanted to possibly switch to the line-shooting target – and of course, I must look like with my training to be a children's nurse, which I am doing now.
Who or what made you change your mind?
A national team colleague of mine shoots at SC Oberhummel. Whose father is a country coach. Since I now have a lot better training facilities, and there is also worked with video analysis.
Who was your Trainer?
My father Robert.
he Is a strict Trainer?
no, because the mum(laughs) scolds rather. My father tried always to build – or me, for a change down.
What have I said your club mates from the SV Wörth, as you've notified them of the change of club?
were severely disappointed. I was Yes, since last year in the first team. But I was and bitched too much in General, but also at me. Some also wanted me to concentrate to shoot the target and the shoot should be. The me makes the decision easier for the club. Actually, I wanted to look at me a year, but now my decision has been made.
