Preparations for the 2020/2021 season have begun. Most nations have named their national teams for the upcoming winter season and many teams have already started with their first jumps.
In addition to several other nations the 4-Hills-Tournament hosts Austria and Germany have also nominated their teams. In addition to Stephan Leyhe, Markus Eisenbichler and Karl Geiger, Richard Freitag, Severin Freund, Pius Paschke and Constantin Schmid also belong to the traininggroup 1a in the German team. Andreas Wellinger and David Siegel, both of whom were recently absent due to injury, are also part of the DSV's perspective cadre. In Austria overall World Cup winner Stefan Kraft, Michael Hayboeck and Philipp Aschenwald form the national team. Clemens Aigner, Jan Hörl, Stefan Huber, Clemens Leitner, Daniel Huber and Gregor Schlierenzauer will complete the A-team.
The jumping training has also started again. In compliance with safety and hygiene conditions the athletes gradually return to the hills. Andreas Wellinger was also able to do his first jumps after almost 11 months and two injuries.
Currently the plans for the summer and winter seasons are being prepared in virtual meetings of the FIS.go back
The preparations for the winter are on and the ski jumpers are already training again on the hills - but it still takes time until the official World Cup start at the end of November. We want to use the time to take a look at the hidden talents of the jumpers. What do the athletes actually do besides competitive sports? Which star is also responsible for the Olympic victory of another athlete? And who almost made the night clubs insecure? Here are three, more or less “secret" talents of the ski jumping stars.
The dates for the season 2021/2021 are fixed. The competition calendar was finalized and presented. Fans can look forward to several seasonal highlights.
