German Andreas Wank wont continue in the skijumping World Cup and becomes part of the German staff.
The Olympic Gold medal winner of Sotchi 2014 announced the end of his active career on his Instagram page. Wank will become a part of the DSV staff and add his value to the coaches team after he already finished the coaches training.
Wank will be officially seen off in Hinterzarten, where the Summer Grand Prix starts in two weeks.
We wish Andreas Wank all the best for the time after his career.
The preparations for the winter are on and the ski jumpers are already training again on the hills - but it still takes time until the official World Cup start at the end of November. We want to use the time to take a look at the hidden talents of the jumpers. What do the athletes actually do besides competitive sports? Which star is also responsible for the Olympic victory of another athlete? And who almost made the night clubs insecure? Here are three, more or less “secret" talents of the ski jumping stars.
The dates for the season 2021/2021 are fixed. The competition calendar was finalized and presented. Fans can look forward to several seasonal highlights.
