Sven Hannawald is retired from ski jumping, but has now discovered a new hobby, which gives him a similar feeling to flying - according to his own statement.

Munich - When Sven Hannawald is part of the winter sports circus, it is usually at the microphone as an expert.

The Four Hills Tournament winner, who was the first eagle to win all four competitions in 2002, has long since ended his career.

Is he now starting a new one in stacking Kapla stones?

Who knows, at least he's blown away by it.

Hannawald shows his fans a picture from last weekend when he surpassed himself with his hobby.

It looks like the former ski jumper discovered his new passion for stacking Kapla stones in his garden.

And the tower goes up almost four meters.

He wrote: “3.97 meters feels like ... 200 meters ski flying .... Do you know Kapla stones?

I haven't so far and let my thoughts run free. ”The pile doesn't seem to be the only odd thing about the photo, as a woman notes in the comments.

"I think the tower behind it is much funnier ... a staircase made of a table and a garbage can," she writes.

Hannawald has an explanation for this.

“There was no other way, there were no leaders”.

Sven Hannawald and the Kapla stones - what is that anyway?

The former ski jumper shouldn't have a problem with the height.

Another follower notes that the Hannawalds sometimes need a ladder.

After the work was done, there was a reward beer.

Kapla stones originally come from Dutch. The word Kapla is made up of the word

Ka

Pla

nkjes (Gnome sticks). The manufacturer describes the original story behind it as follows on the homepage: “During a trip to southern France at the end of the 1960s, Tom van der Bruggen succumbs to the charm of a ruined farm and decides to turn it into a castle. With the help of wooden building blocks, he tries to make a model for his building project in order to visualize everything that has to be created. But the wooden blocks are too rough to build an accurate, realistic model and he decides to invent his own building blocks. This is how the wonderful KAPLA tiles came about, with which you can really build anything. "(Ank)
