Ski crosser Florian Fischer from SC Starnberg returned from Krasnoyarsk yesterday from the Junior World Championships.
Now the Graefelfinger can hope for a professional career.
Starnberg / Graefelfing - Florian Fischer initially looked a bit depressed after his fourth place at the Junior World Championships in Ski Cross in the past few days.
The 20-year-old Graefelfinger, who is active at the Starnberg Ski Club, had actually set himself a podium place at the event in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, but failed in the final run of the best four.
"It was a big disappointment," he said yesterday after his return in an interview with Starnberg Mercury.
"Unfortunately I didn't have my nerves under control in the final."
Florian Fischer delivers good performances in the Skicross European Cup
Compared to the previous "heats", the runs in ski cross with four skiers starting at the same time in a course, Fischer got off to a bad start in the decisive run and followed the competition from the start.
From the point of view of Heli Herdt, Sports Director Skicross in the German Ski Association (DSV), this mistake in the decisive final run is annoying, but not a major drama.
Especially in light of the fact that Fischer and his training group had had a decent season.
Because of the corona pandemic, all athletes had to get by with fewer races than normal.
And young talents like Fischer also had the burden of the European Cup races this winter because top drivers often took part in this competition after World Cup events had been canceled.
Fischer satisfied with the season - now he dreams of a professional career
This concentrated experience of the veterans was often too high a hurdle for younger skiers in the sport in which tactics and callousness play a role.
“It wasn't easy for everyone.
The team around Florian fought bravely for that, ”said Herdt.
Fischer sees it similarly: “Overall, the season went very well and the results were reasonable.
I am largely satisfied. ”In addition to his Junior World Championship race, the skicross talent from SC Starnberg achieved a top ten position in his seven European Cup starts in mid-March in Passo San Pellegrino, Italy.
Mass is power.
Florian Fischer still has to gain weight.
In any case, Herdt predicts a promising future for his sport for Fischer.
“He has developed well and can establish himself in the World Cup in two to three years.
A good team player ”, praised the DSV manager from Krailling.
In terms of weight, Fischer still has to improve, as he knows himself.
He currently weighs 85 kilograms, before the first snowy day of the coming season he would like to weigh 90.
“Mass is power,” says Fischer.
Back to work in Bad Endorf - and get fit for the new season
First of all, the federal police officer goes back to work in Bad Endorf.
There he will work on his fitness just as hard as he did when training in the mountains last season.
The winter sports enthusiast, on the other hand, rules out that the passionate footballer will get the necessary fitness for the coming winter season in sport together with his old friends at his former football club TV Stockdorf.
Fischer explains: "Unfortunately, I don't have the time and I'm often not at home at all."
