SEEFELD (Dagbladet): Stöckl and athletes have a goal of world CHAMPIONSHIP medal in every race in Austria the next few days. But no one is talking about Norway as a major threat on the herresida. Thus, Stöckl and co. in a position they don't want to be in.
OLYMPIC and world CHAMPIONSHIPS-the winner from the 90's, Espen Bredesen, follow hoppsirkuset from the outside. He doesn't think it's as much about the equipment and technique for the norwegians. He believes variable results due to that head not in the right place.New thought patterns
- I remember when I myself struggled at the beginning of the 90's. It helped very to break thinking patterns by pulling in a little bit other people. I could get the help of a chiropractor, a teacher at the idrettsskolen or a mental coach. They could press some buttons that made me say: "Wow, I have not thought of." And so I was able to release control, " says Bredesen.the EXPERT: Espen Bredesen took world CHAMPIONSHIP gold in 1993.

can you go stuck in the same patterns. Maybe it helps to talk with someone outside of the environment, " he says.Weakened
the Jumpers opens the world cup on Saturday, in the large Bergiselbakken in Innsbruck.
the Uk is clearly weakened by the fact that Daniel-André Tande is out with a knee injury. He has been the team's best athlete the last two years - and now no one can hide behind him.
Robert Johansson and Johann André, the Blame is on respectively the sixth - and sjuendeplass in the world cup. It is isolation, not so bad. But as long as this is the inventory, enhanced the impression that the Stöckl and his men play annenfiolin.Ravaged
Last season was sparkling. Norway took both the OLYMPIC gold medal team and three individual medals in the herresida. In the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in skiflyging ravaged Tande.
- When you have been on the top, go there often just one way, " says Bredesen.
at the same time have the boys been trained one year, so strictly speaking you should not be worse. I think it is dangerous to look for the feeling from last year. The feeling you had the previous season, is not similar to the one you have in years. Body and head have changed. So to those who are looking for the old feeling: good Luck to you, I say.Outsider
Bredesen believes it can turn a positive thing in the world that the norwegians are finished with to defend last year's season.
- When you have had trouble, you collect all the powers against the world cup. Suddenly, there may be some release control and win. Now, there are others who have to defend themselves. Norway has assumed the role of outsider.Hoppsjefen races: They must have the stusslig
On the first training in Bergiselbakken Wednesday was Halvor Is Granerud the best Norwegian on the 14. space. Kamil Stoch from Poland won. Together with consequently won the match Ryoyu Kobayashi and the austrian Stefan Kraft counted him as a favorite in storbakken in Innsbruck and normalbakken in Seefeld.
Coach Stöckl pistons season as "exciting and challenging". He has zest for ideas to Bredesen, but at the same time aware that the jumpers use idrettspsykologer when it is necessary.Theory
the General has this theory about why the season has been a downer:
- the Head plays definitely a role in ski jumping. We have seen some good results, but we are not close to deliver what we did last year. I mean technique and equipment do not match completely. That is the challenges in our now. But we want to fight for a medal in every world cup-launders.
