The FIS Alpine ski World champs i Schladming are over. For me they have been over for two days more. I jumped straight on a plane to go somewhere warm and far away from the ski world. The championship in Schladming was great in many ways. I got a gold and a bronze. But even better and more impressive was the atmosphere and the crowds. Every single race was packed with ten-thousands of spectators cheering on the racers. Thanks for bringing that atmosphere. For an athlete it’s amazing to race with that kind of backing. But outside of the arena its also draining. My schedule has been Adelboden, Wengen, Kitzbuhel and Schladming. That’s the four biggest race destinations of the year. So these three days away from the ski scene has been very welcome. On a side not I most also admit that I’m a little bit of a psycho. A raced for medals in all for races I took part in, something that I’m proud of. I got medals in two of them. But in the other two I missed them by margins. A gate that passed on the wrong side of the slalom ski, or 0,04 sec behind the bronze. That happens, and I have mixed emotions about it. I should be happy about what I did, and not think about what went wrong. But I think what I’m feeling is what every competitive athlete would feel. Thinking about what can be improved to do better in the future. It’s psycho, but it’s also just being an athlete.
