do you Dream sometimes of Dario Cologna?
Usually, not. But recently, I've had a bad dream, I had something imposed. Dario was actually in a dream.
What is the question: is your room for manoeuvre as the discipline chief is closely associated with its services.
If a Laurien van der Graaff wins, I also peace of mind.
Just wins in General for your Team rather Cologna as the Sprinter.
That's right. Not provide our service providers we immediately Stress, because anxiety comes into the Team.
the question made of soft. Therefore, to put it differently: you Are the chief of Colognas grace?
He is in some of the things that the stroke, that is, in view of his Position, but only logically. I must say that very often no, if he wants certain conditions to be different. My job is not to just build a System that works for him. It needs to be wider. I didn't always, once again, discussions with him, because I host everything exactly according to his Wishes. His reasons are entitled to, I give in, as a rule, rapidly.
What it is currently particularly important, with a view to the next Olympic cycle?
He wanted a Coach who is daily and close. This request, we have complied with the obligation of the Estonians No Einaste. But this is not a false impression: Einaste is for all of the athletes on base in Davos, responsible, not only for Cologna. But I heard of the Engagement of Einaste heavily on him.
Cologna will pause after this season for the first time, longer. You have recommended it to him after the Winter of 2015 . . .
. . . what one sees, how well he listens to me (laughs). Seriously Dario, as the entire Team gold in February were after the last Olympics, although happy, but also realize how big the feat was, especially emotionally. For new acts, which we knew must place the supervisor of the crew. This is Dario as well. He wants to be in 2022 again to Play, he must make himself emotionally fit.
What does that mean?
Half the stuff doesn't go. He must be in spite of all the successes ready to go new ways and to take risks. The preparation for the games is a feat of strength for the body as spirit, accordingly, to be sure, he must be that he is fresh, Yes, greedy enough. The big question is: will it Dario, the corresponding force applied?
Still, he has not specified. How could you simplify to make him the More?
You must say the following: In the Games of 2022 in China, it will be cold and windy, the air is likely to partly dirty from the desert dust and dry . . .
. . . and thus anything but ideal for Cologna, the performance asthmatics.
to be added. What I want: The conditions will be extreme, the race battles, probably in part to regular Wear and tear such as some of the other recent Games in similar conditions. Dario would have to be ready for these realities to accept, and you specifically prepare in order to possess the Chance, 5. To be able to win Gold.
it Creates Dario Cologna, once again, for the Olympic games? This is the big question.
then Play the. A Motivation?
This is all well and good. But such external Motivation would not be enough to have him in 2022 as a gold favorite at the Start. It needs primary and want to, first of all, is the inner Conviction. The Rest is a very helpful addition.
Back to the harsh conditions that likely await him. How to strengthen you body and spirit?
Since the opinions differ. The Swedes built up a research area to the question of how to provide the cooling power. They made a treadmill with a wind tunnel in the cold. Also tested the Catering, the in the cold is different. Their women have not succeeded, the men. In this area, we Swiss have at least a lot of potential. We are involved in the least, rather with power issues or technical aspects. Now the mentioned facet will be added.
Missing one thing: a really strong sparring partner for Cologna in the daily Training? His colleagues in the distance teams are too slow.
We can also use the new treadmill. Finally, there is a precise Tempo. Dario can't be slower, otherwise it is discarded.
Can replace a treadmill strong internal competitors?
We cooperate to think about it before, with other Nations. Finally, we came to something of this thought. In addition, I must say: A Jonas Baumann was in this summer, often on Dario's level, last year it was Jason Rüesch. Only Dario can pull the Winter through, while the other leached and sometimes fail.
Cologna of colleagues scare?
He, at least, is so strong that he endures very high volumes, and delivers them. Others are overwhelmed by these many hours of training. In this respect, such a powerful engine as Dario can be a mortgage. You need a certain Routine to endure these loads. As an Athlete, you should know well, otherwise you can burn out.
topics exchange to Nathalie von Siebenthal. The rising star of recent years is off to a weak start in the Winter. Why?
Nathalie at the beginning is always a bit of an effort.
Do you already have on optimism?
not at all. But according to acts the beginning of the season the preparation is still something.
I must say Dario to often no. My job is not to only build a System for him.
What does that mean?
it is just like being at home, helping on the family farm. The question is always: when will trained you fully in the Team? She needs in the spring and early summer always two, three months, in which you chrampft much in the yard. Of course you trained in, this time serious. Only the technically important training, which are controlled by the Coach. This results in a shortcoming that needs to catch up in the subsequent months, always.
Why you can't send a Trainer regularly to her?
I can't make every athlete's individual coach. So many coaches I don't have.
von Siebenthal to be a little uncompromising?
This is a question I can categorically deny. In her youth, she ran on the same day, often more than a race. Nathalie is a great fighter with great endurance capabilities. What you forget in your like: she's working so much on the farm – from the joy of actually – that the physical work for the long-run helps. Your training model may appear to be antique, I got townsfolk to hear, but often, While foresters and farmers, engaged in the Nordic-sports, have been trained through their career already in x hours, you go with the public TRANSPORT to the Uni. I hear criticism of the training, the style of Nathalie, I like to be in this Episode. I definitely delight have work, such as you and does. About Nathalie, it is not boring, if you graduated as recently the competition block in the high North. Because the Busy ask yourself: What do I do all day?
