Four at a time! Swiss ski girls have yet to report a case of the crown, having hit the Austrians in the last four weeks. More specifically: Stephanie Venier (26), Nicole Schmidhofer (31), Mirjam Puchner (28) and Tamara Tippler (29).
They all tested positive and had to be quarantined. They are out of it now. Tippler had not yet traveled to St. Moritz; he is suffering from dizziness, headaches and sore limbs. “I don’t see myself able to achieve great physical performance,” he says.
“We are not gods”
The other three speed specialists are fine now. Venier says, however, that he also hit hard. “I was often very tired and had to sleep a lot. I also had extreme headaches. And I still can’t taste or smell anything. ».
The runner-up in the 2017 World Cup is not sure where he was infected. The same goes for his teammates. Women’s coach Christian Mitter ÖSV doesn’t think they’ve infected each other. After all, as is the case with Swiss women, strict crown rules apply in the ÖSV. So what happened? No one knows. Mitter says, “We’re not the gods who live in the plastic bubble either.”

Return to Venier. He denied that until recently he walked to the fridge with a 180-beat heart. That’s according to a regional newspaper. “My maximum heart rate is 120.”
