9. February 2019. Aksel Lund Image speaks for teammates, support system, family, friends, the media and other guests at Copperhill Mountain Lodge.
36-year old has just run its last race, and in avslutningstalen comes Image with a number of words about the importance of a strong Norwegian team to build on in the future.
- No enkeltalpinist is bigger than the team, said the Image.Ulmet
On the outside it looked as well-meant advice to an already functioning team. At the same time, it was easy to interpret it in a completely different way.
at the same time as Jansrud and Image was celebrated, ulmet, the Norwegian alpinlaget. Henrik Kristoffersen is alone at the training in san francisco, about a few days he will meet his teammates at the hotel just outside Åre in Sweden.
26. January. Henrik Kristoffer gets a new disappointing result in Kitzbühel. He is number four, after a first half that was far below the standard he requires of himself.
- See the results in general, we can ask ourselves whether we are actually doing a good enough job, " said Henrik Kristoffersen of the Norwegian broadcasting corporation.
Kristoffersen even have been aware that he knows why he is not better, but he would not say anything about it:
I've known it for a while. But it will be so much trouble if I say things in the media. I can not stand anymore, he stated to Aftenposten after the Kitzbühel race.Drama in the scenes
Just days before the Kristoffersens outbreak, joined the long-time teknikktreneren Stefan Kornberger.
This came as a surprise to many in the alpinmiljøet, and many of the other guys on the teknikklaget was very surprised and disappointed. Dagbladet have known about this, and the reason why Kornberger stopped was among the that it was too difficult for him to combine the top and the width.
Kristoffersen shall among other things have required to get training more on their own terms, and in the course of the season, it became too much for Kornberger.
finally, he got just enough, and said I stop. It happened Thursday before the launders in Kitzbühel.
He then simply no other option than to give up.
Kristoffersen was after the Dagbladet know a big reason that the coach chose to join. Dagbladet has been in contact with the coach, but he did not want to comment on something.
TV 2 has also discussed the matter today.This man is the reason for henry's action against NSF - Better together
It is in Skiforbundets DNA to take care of the top, at the same time as the others on the team also to get an as good opportunity as possible to develop.
Alpintrener Christian Mitter explains that it is the definitely most important thing for him.
- I will give enerne as good environment as possible, but for us, it is also important to build a team. Rasmus Windingstad and Sebastian Foss Solevåg is not width, they have shown through the world cup that they are, and fighting amongst the 10-15 best in the world. We must try to build a team, stand together and be better together, " says Mitter to the Newspaper.
- do you Feel that Kristoffersen will be there per date?
"We have some challenges, but I feel that he is interested to be with and help," says Mitter, before he confirms that Kristoffersen will have training more on their own terms.
- we can always adapt and talk about, but grunnverdiene we stand for is that we shall be together better. What have we inherited from the 90s, and we have to just take care of.
- How did the other athletes react?
It has been a challenge, but it is not something we cannot solve. We try to be professional and open solutions, " says Mitter.
He points out that it is not the case that the national team should be a breddelag, but that those who are taken out of the national team now are good enough and deserve to get such a good program as possible.OAR: There was no medal on Henrik Kristoffersen after today's slalom in Åre.

The austrian coach uses US as an example of how wrong he thinks it can go if one is just thinking at the top.
Sunday there were no american men in the world cup slalåmen. Behind Lindsey Vonn, who now has added up, it is very thin on the surname in speed.
And this is a nation that has had world stars like Bode Miller, Ted Ligety, Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn. Mikaela Shiffrin is running also in a large extent their own training.
- We shall not end up in the situation they are in. They are dependent on the individual results. It looks good on top, but they have nothing now. Now stop Vonn, so the speed is almost dead for girls. They had four of the biggest stars, but they did not manage to build something around it. Had it been so with us, had not we taken our task seriously enough, " says Mitter.
A simple illustration of the difference we got to see during the world cup. The Norwegian teknikklaget and fartslaget trainer hardly with each other during the season, but they know each other well.
this is not So in the united STATES. Vonn told during the world cup in Åre that she barely talked to or known Shiffrin. The two have been in the world together now for eight years.Henrik provokes. Alpinlaget is split This will Kristoffersen
During the world cup has also Kristoffersen come with new drip that something is wrong. He thanks for example, many affiliates without about the national team and his teammates directly after storslalåmgullet, and said that the gold was against all odds
Dagbladet know that Kristoffersen, among other things, required to get the train more alone and at other times than the rest of the teknikklaget this season, and that this has led to the unrest and division in the Norwegian national team.
Kristoffersen will after the Dagbladet understand have a more similar life to Marcel Hirscher. Eneren in teknikkøvelsene have their own servicemenn, private pressemann and generally a much freer life.
Dagbladet asked Kristoffersen that he created unrest in the national team earlier in the championship. He would not comment on the case.
TV 2 has today been in contact with dad Lars Kristoffersen. He had no comment at the present time.GOLD: - He impresses particularly where there win. He takes down the giants and take his first world cup gold. It is completely, totally raw, " says The expert Kjetil André Aamodt. Henrik Kristoffersen is the world champion in giant slalom! Video: NRK Show more - The Norwegian model
Kristoffersen is on their side have been told to follow the Norwegian model that has provided success in the past. He has been told to train with the Pile-Nestvold, Solevåg and other of the Norwegian teknikkgutta.
In the run-up to the season trained Kristoffersen almost ruled out with the Pile-Nestvold, something both of them have confirmed to Dagbladet. When trained with Stefan Kornberger and Jonas Bøe.
We realize that they have to run up the same way, for they are in the world, in both the giant slalom and slalom. So we tried to adapt it on them.
Skiforbundet and Mitter tells that they are trying to adapt for Kristoffersen, at the same time as Mitter is concerned about the banks and the long layers:
" We're trying to add up to win skirenn, but we are keen to build a team as it gets the results about 10-15 years also. We have to care of. I know it is easy to jump on the eneren and think that all resources should go to the one person, and they get a lot of resources, but we only have people on the team who deserve to be there, " says Mitter to the Newspaper.
He goes on to say that this is something they are working continuously to solve, and he is sure that they will be able to solve this.
I'm always open to change and adapt. There is no stress. But the values we stand for: Hard work, discipline, community, and to make things easy, we can't change. It stands for the person and it says Skiforbundet for. It gives results both today and in 10-15 years. It is not the case that all should be welcome, " explained Mitter.Outclassed by Hirscher: - No cool
