– It’s nice to be back on the hill. This summer has been difficult for me. I had technical issues and also got sick for two weeks. The return was not easy either. The first training sessions were very tiring for me. So I had to gradually increase the load. On top of that, I still don’t feel my best. However, it is trending for the good, Stausch said.
Our athlete said that his last jumps before illness were not the best. However, now everything seems to be moving in the right direction.
After I got back to the hill after getting sick, my jumps looked completely different. There was a different energy in them. In addition, I was hungry to jump, which the coach also noticed. These jumps at the Polish Championship were good. Even this summer is probably the best, yet I feel a bit dissatisfied. I feel like they could have been better. This is a good sign. It was about making good jumps and feeling like I could do better. After this day I gained self-confidence and I hope there will be more days like this

Now we tried to standardize and simplify everything and not try to impose everything by force. We decided that because my approach wasn’t working as well as it should, it was too bad. I don’t have to drive faster, and I might drive poorly, but it’s important that I fly farther – He said.
