Austria Off To Worst Downhill Start In 25 Years - Westport News









Austria

Do they really want to win?" Walchhofer, once Eberharter's teammate and now vice president of the Austrian ski federation, is the last Austrian to win the world downhill title, in 2003. He also points to a "mentality issue." "It has nothing to do with training deficits," he said. "Either you manage to overcome the challenge or you don't." The remarks didn't sit well with the team. Klaus Kroell called the comments "unnecessary," and Reichelt added that "help from the likes of Walchhofer and Eberharter is always welcome, but they have my phone number. I'd rather see they call me than criticize us in some newspapers." Reichelt, at least, won a speed race this season the super-G in Beaver Creek. "There isn't missing much in downhill," said Reichelt, who sat out the Sochi Olympics with a back injury. "It's just some small technical mistakes, a matter of centimeters in the turns." Despite the lack of downhill results, Austria is enjoying a good start to the World Cup season with five wins and nine top-three finishes overall. However, it is relying mainly on defending overall champion Marcel Hirscher , who has already racked (visit) up six podium finishes, including four wins, in technical events. "What Marcel is doing is stock market sensational," head coach Puelacher said.
