Why Mikaela Shiffrin and Marcel Hirscher as well? Why dominate you for many years, an almost incredible extent? There are umpteen reasons for this. An important part of the success puzzle is the service. Both of them have realized that they need, in addition to the trainers, with additional Inputs, so the father in-Hirscher has always, for Shiffrin, the mother. Inputs can be in skitechnischer terms, but also in a psychological. It can give you a sense of security when a familiar Person is on the page. Michelle Gisin helps it to inexperienced Abfahrerin extreme, when sister Dominique are allowed to stay in the Team. In the case of Federica Brignone, the brother is as a reference person, to Talk, to have Fun. Especially thanks to him, she has found the joy in the Sport again.
The Trend is in the direction of individualization. Strikingly often, family members who are acting as caregivers. Security is important, many drivers need a sense of home, because they are for months on end. Marco Odermatts father and I, because of my son, Elijah, stop by from time to time in the Swiss giant slalom team. The stimulating discussions with the trainers; they, too, will appreciate other ways of thinking.
Sometimes, the athletes are like stallions in front of me, the curb and the right to take control. The cost of power and is demanding, not everyone can coach. If an Athlete does not feel right then probably, he suffers underneath and can't be lost. The Swiss has recognised Ski: The Association to become much more open to the care of the outside. Central is that in the coaching courses even more to the versatility is taken to a Trainer is not just an analyst, he must also be a father figure, colleague, great Fun. On such factors, with an emphasis always to be of little value.
But you must not overdo it, an external care must remain in a reasonable framework. Skiing is an individual sport, but not a classic. The team may not suffer from the alone an athlete. Lara gut-Behrami was integrated for a period of time hardly in the Team – has brought anything to anyone. You need the comparison. Hirscher is a good example: He has his own people to be trained, but often with the other Austrians; among the coaches, it's going to rain exchange. To Buffalo all year round with a private coach, condition, is the wrong approach. Much better to train the physique in the Team and pushing each other. From the national Federation of very independent – I don't think that will ever work, only for organizational reasons. And who is on it has to pay for everything themselves. The pressure would be enormous, this could drive a driver and the family in Ruin.
I hear a lot about the Norwegian model: the small, family-run Team. This is all well and good, but I have a different approach. Swiss-Ski set in the past, to very small cells with a few drivers. I prefer a large group, maybe with ten athletes, there is room for individual approaches. I don't think the Best of the less fast drivers to pull down. Towards the end of my career of Michael von Grünigen came into the Team – I would have been able to say: I train. But I was able to have the benefit of Mike, of his youthful dynamism.
In a large Team is also tends to make the mood better because there is more contact, more of a distraction. Went to my time with the team after the workout, play football, or fishing, and I can assure you, it was as it is today in the Swiss Abfahrern very different types. What's going on in the departure of the team wrong, I can't judge conclusively. It is clear, it needs the coach as a conductor, but it takes the team as an orchestra which makes the music. Maybe the looseness, the enthusiasm is missing a bit. With us it was different: We went to the Winter even more together in the holidays. (Tages-Anzeiger)
