Daniel Jule compares Marcel Hirscher after his victory in Schladming with Roger Federer. The Austrian reacts emotionally.
"In Switzerland we have Roger Federer, but definitely I see Marcel in the same category. I can not remember someone else who dominates his sport for so long and with such consistency," Daniel Jule said on Tuesday after Schladming's slalom slalom. Marcel Hirscher again won this title with incredible superiority – 1.21 seconds before the match.
"He is probably one of the best athletes of this century, if not all times. He has moved so many borders," Julie continued with his praise for Hirscher. The Swiss finished third behind Alexis Pinturo.
The reaction of the Austrian: "If it is told by a superb man and colleague like Daniel, then that's something for me," says Hirscher for "Crown." "These words encouraged me." The 29-year-old, who has already won eleven races this season and heads the world championship with a lead of nearly 500 points, certainly also at the upcoming World Championships in "Do you like big medals."
The crisis in a small form – Hirscher's last victory two weeks ago – seems to have been overcome. "I can attack and accelerate, I'm free again," said the World Cup champion. "This feeling of being able to drive again to win is very nice."
The win at Schladming Hirscher celebrated the champagne shower for the coach Michael Pyrcher, who helped his opponent again to be the old security guard with the material. Even having a good time with alcohol, it's not there for the Dominator World Cup. What Hirscher seems to complain about sometimes is also a bit: "The highest price is definitely meaningless so I can go with my beer friends. It just is not possible anymore."
