With the slogan “Kids meet their Idols” we organized this year for the third time a cross-country skiing training session for children of Tyrolean clubs and the Nordic combined Austrian national team.
Over 60 young talents took the chance and came to the training session with the professional athletes, who are great model roles. They got the possibility to learn something from the professionals and got some special tips of world cup stars.
The Olympic winners Christoph Bieler and Mario Stecher and also youngster Fabian Steindl gave the kids some useful tips and experiences to take on their way. The motivation and ambition, as well as the joy were written on the children’s faces. After a sportive session the kids got autographs and photographs with their idols.
„It is great to see how many fun the kids have at cross-country skiing and how they implement the tips and help immediately“, all the professionals said unanimous.
„The cross-country skiing was very arduous today, but it was big fun. To practice with a world cup athlete and look at their technique is a great experience“, was the voice of the kids.
A very big thanks goes to all athletes and as well to the sponsors Manner, Recheis and Holly Kaffee for their support.
