Somehow you get the feeling, that he’s a very relaxed person. “That’s true,” says Atomic Team Manager Christian Höflehner: “If an athlete is becoming more mature in the era of a great superstar, which is true for all of them, who are trying to get a foot in the door in the Marcel Hirscher era, then there are two categories of racers: those who are trying to copy the superstar, don’t manage it, then get impatient along the way, which brings them more out of their own stride. And athletes such as Marco who does his own thing, as he knows, that his era has already begun, but he’s far from at his peak”. He tried for the Gold in the World Championship Combined and in the end it was a Bronze. But nonetheless his first medal is definitely a reason to celebrate.
