Military Sport Awards
Yesterday, the Military Sport Awards were distributed in the nice surroundings of the Vienna Military History Museum. Together with Benjamin Karl (Snowboarding) and Kilian Fischhuber (Climbing), I was nominated in the category "Sportsman of the Year". The minister of sports and defense lifted the secret and I was pleased to be awarded the price :)
Furthermore, Markus Kössler and Richard Schuh, who were my longtime coaches during my youth time and the 10 years I spent in the Austrian Military Sports Team, became awarded "Trainer of the year".
A TV-production will be broadcasted on "Austria9" on the 16th of Dec. at 11:51, or 19th at 15:15. Or on ORF III on the 22nd at 16:43 or 29th at 17:00. Alternative, you will find the TV-production on http://www.mco-tv.com/videos/t4u_a9/t4u_film.htm in some days.
After some picture taking moments, we enjoyed the Buffet, close to emperor Franz Joseph....
