Markus Salcher ready for the World Cup Season
Markus Salcher is preparing himself for the World Cup winter. Even before the season has started, the austrian paralamic skier has the chance to win once again the award at the Lotterien Sporthilfe Gala on the 31st of October.
The 27 year old is defending champion of the category "athlete with disability of the year". Furthermore Salcher is nominated for the category "Athlete with heart" as ambassador for the project "Schneetiger" (snow tiger).This initiative brings together kids with and without disablities, who are interested in skiing.
Preparations for the upcoming season could be better. Especially the lack of snow on the glaciers impedes training conditions. But the two times bronze medallist at the Pyeongchang para-olympics remains optimistic: "We will make the best out of it."
