FIS ALPINE SKI WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN
Finally I am able to attend the last few days of this amazing event. Today I watch the Mens Slalom during which Felix Neureuther unfortunately cannot withstand the pressure in front of his home crowd and is disqualified. Nevertheless, the crowd is cheering very warmly for the popular local hero. In the evening I get to meet the new slalom World Champion from France, Jean Baptiste Grange, during a live interview for French television. Here we both use the opportunity to promote our 2018 bid, Jean Baptiste of course promotes Annecy and I Munich.
On Friday and Saturday we used the beautiful weather and the majestic mountain backdrops to shoot material for our Munich 2018 promotion video on the slopes of the ski jump, the shooting range of the biathlon track and on the tradition-rich Kandahar race track.
Yesterday I also followed the Ladies Slalom and enjoyed the lively atmosphere amongst the cheerful crowd. And in the evening at the ski lodge I actually shook a leg which I haven't done for what felt like 100 years :-)
