Fulfilling one's childhood dream is something that not everyone can achieve.
The German winter athlete Julian Schmid has now ticked off exactly that.
Munich – It is the great rivalry in the Bundesliga: FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
These are the red record champions against the yellow ones who would like to be there.
In the top German division there has only been one permanent winner for a decade.
Julian Schmid, who probably sticks with FC Bayern, should have been happy too.
The winter sports enthusiast is now suddenly wearing a yellow dress, which, according to colleagues, as a "Bayern fan" he is allowed to wear this time.
Winter sports enthusiast's "childhood dream" comes true and is celebrated by colleagues
Schmid is at home in Nordic combined.
The passionate cross-country skier and ski jumper was born in 1999 in Oberstdorf.
In his youth he was coached by Thomas Müller.
Does that mean an FCB affinity?
No, there was an Olympic champion of the same name in the discipline who later coached the youth.
Schmid is now 23 years old and celebrated his greatest success in Kuusamo, Finland: his first World Cup victory.
And synonymous with the World Cup victory was the handing over of the yellow jersey, which the World Cup leader wears.
"A childhood dream comes true!
Yellow jersey and a World Cup victory, many thanks to everyone who made this possible!” Schmid writes on his Instagram profile.
And he is celebrated by his colleagues.
"In that case, a Bayern fan can also wear yellow": Winter sports athlete Ryzdek congratulates on the first World Cup victory
Ski jumper Katharina Althaus says: "Yellow looks great on you.
Congratulations.” And teammate Johannes Ryzdek says: “In that case, a Bayern fan can also wear yellow.
Congratulations.” Ex-biathlete Maren Hammerschmidt also attested to him as a “mega achievement”.
Richard Freitag finds it a "strong thing" and competitor Johanes Lamparter also congratulates dutifully.
Vinzenz Geiger, two-time Olympic champion, even posted a photo of himself and Schmid with Schmid wearing a crown.

Julian Schmid will remember the day for a long time.
And maybe he wears yellow a lot more and longer, the jersey seems to fit him well.
