The Corona-pandemic has finished the past season abruptly. The whole entourage of the Nordic Para-athletes, had already traveled to the Premiere of a pure race of the Biathlon world Championships in Östersund; hours before the Start were cancelled the competitions. A disappointment for Smart and Härtl, at the Nordic skiing world Championships in the spring of 2019 in Canada, three times Biathlon-Gold, and twice cross-country Bronze had brought. Because after problems (fall, illness) to the start of and during the winter the Duo for Östersund "fit as a fiddle", as the weilheimer says. For the upcoming season there is in terms of "competitions" is a rough-cut planning, but what can really take place, know nobody. "We adapt to many shifts," says Härtl.

Paralympics: Smart/Härtl use Corona time specifically

The coach, the Clever at the races in the trail as the Guide supports, your running ahead, and with the commands guide, in the Corona-Pause is also something Positive: "We use the time to be able to clean train.“ The past Winter has shown that The Russian women were allowed to start after a ban by the International Paralympic Committee back in the world Cup, "are so strong," says Härtl. Vera Khlyzova and Anna Panferova dominated the action both in Biathlon and in the long run. What relates to the performance of Panferova on skis, the Coach is even a comparison with the Norwegian Therese Johaug, who runs in the FIS area of all of them.

Not in Front of - and follow-up (physiotherapy, etc.) and the journeys.

Not a Top-ranked without a good shooting results

At the Biathlon base Wise practice with coach Herbert Mayer. The "is a luminary," says Härtl. Someone "with experience, you will find rare." The visually impaired biathletes shoot with a light gun, but the processes are the same as the small caliber. There is a difference: Smart targets with the ears. The proximity to the destination is displayed by means of headphones and a changing sound. The shoot is of great importance, because in the coming Winter, the distances back to the conventional lengths (Sprint: 6 km, medium distance 10 km, single: 12.5 km) can be shortened. To be on the front line, "you have to bring the Zero," says Härtl.

as of September, the time begins for Smart/Härtl again travel

Until the end of August, will the Duo be program by dragging. After that first performance tests in Oberwiesenthal are planned. At the beginning of September, it should not go to altitude training camp to Livigno or in the Kühtai, the feast is still to come. The first units on snow is to be completed in November. It is questionable what Corona can go all the way.

The real focus is not on the coming Winter, even if in Lillehammer, the world Cup is on. "I look at the Paralympics in 2022," says Härtl. At the Games in Beijing, he and Wise want to be on a par with the Russians. In South Korea, the Germans had trumps been recorded.
