The eagle has landed
When the e-mail came in to announce the press conference about the future of Thomas Morgenstern everybody knew somehow already: the great career of this sympathetic guy from Austria ends – he is not even 28 years old.
But no one was really astonished about it. Triple olympic champion, double world cup overall winner and elevenfold world champion – Morgenstern has reached everything as a skijumper. But there were two terrible crashes last season, especially the one on January 10th 2014 in training for the flying hill competition on Kulm. From there on the necessary respect in such a dangerous sport turned into fear.
