Today Bernhard Schwank and I get the opportunity to extensively present live on tv the concept, content and most of all the chances of bringing the Olympic Winter Games to Munich in 2018. Michael Steinbrecher, host of the popular ZDF sports format "das aktuelle sportstudio", is tenaciously questioning our bid from all sides.

In 1993, during my preparation for the Olympic Games in Lillehammer, I was already a guest in the sportstudio and Michael was also hosting the show back then. I was known for having a sweet tooth and as a present Michael gave me a case filled with more than 1000 Mozart balls. The case was secured with a code lock and the code was given to me after the Games 1994. Since then only one ball is left and today I brought it with me to give it to Michael as a present. But then we both decide to share it after the decision about who will host the Olympic Winter Games 2018 is made. This will be on July 6th in Durban, South Africa.
