Felix Neureuther says goodbye to his mother Rosi Mittermaier.
The former ski star reported with emotional words and a picture via Instagram.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen - The year 2023 began with sad news.
The death of Rosi Mittermaier, a sporting and human role model for the whole country, has shocked many people.
Above all, of course, those who were closest to her: husband Christian Neureuther and their two children Ameli and Felix.
Ameli Neureuther was the first to react publicly to her mother's death via Instagram.
She shared emotional words about Rosi Mittermaier in a story.
Felix Neureuther has now followed suit.
Felix Neureuther says goodbye to his mother Rosi Mittermaier: Three sentences that hit the heart
On Saturday evening he posted a picture.
You can see it: Himself as a toddler with his mom pointing to the sky.
Neureuther wrote three sentences that go straight to the heart: "You showed me the stars.
Now you are one yourself.
Thanks for everything dear mom.” He put a heart emoji behind it.
Felix's wife Miriam Neureuther commented on the post with the words: "The brightest star." Users quickly gave it more than 1000 "likes".
Many other stars from the sports or TV business can be found in the comment column.

From ski idol Lindsey Vonn to ex-handball player Stefan Kretzschmar, TV star Elton or Bundesliga kicker Florian Niederlechner: the list of people who support the Neureuthers in these difficult times is endless.
No wonder: Rosi Mittermaier won the hearts of the nation during her lifetime because of her always likeable and friendly nature.
She passed these values on to her children.
The picture book marriage with her husband Christian served as a role model for many people.
Her cancer death has affected countless people.
Son Felix also had a very special bond with his mother because of his passion for skiing.
For a long time he didn't know what a superstar his mom used to be.
His competitors called him “Rosi” during races, which surprised Felix as a child.
Felix Neureuther didn't know for a long time that Rosi Mittermaier was a ski star
At the age of nine, someone handed him a book about his mother.
From then on he knew that he was the son of a double Olympic champion.
In the beginning, Felix's parents rarely watched Felix' races.
It's completely clear why: Just imagine the hustle and bustle when two former ski stars suddenly support their offspring on the track.

Fancy a journey of discovery?
It would probably have put far too much pressure on Felix at that age, too.
From his point of view, he was able to zoom down the slopes completely carefree for at least a few years.
And it was worth it: Later, like Mama Rosi and Papa Christian, he became a successful skier himself.

Do Rosi Mittermaier's grandchildren already know what her grandmother used to do?
If not, Ameli and Felix will one day proudly tell you what a great athlete she was.
But trophies and medals wouldn't even matter.
Because Rosi Mittermaier was first and foremost an absolute winner as a person.
This is supported by the countless reactions to her death.
