Vienna – Thursday, October 14, 2021, 2:28 p.m.
The appointment of the ÖSV President Roswitha Stadlober met with great approval from Austrian ski racers and some euphoric reactions. Franziska Gritsch said on Thursday, when asked by APA, that she was “really happy about it”, while the appointment of a woman in this role is a “good sign” for Stephanie Brunner.
After the giant slalom training in Sölden, Brunner also emphasized that “women perform as well as men” and that overall it is “cool” that a woman now fulfills this role. “Women can also be strong,” agrees Gritsch, referring to the new ÖSV president. “She will do it very well,” she is also sure.
Feller: “Women tend to be better managers”
Ramona Siebenhofer does not want to see the discussion limited to the fact that now, after 22 men, a woman will act as the association boss. “It’s about qualification,” she emphasizes. It should really no longer be an issue whether a woman or a man functions in this position. At the same time, however, she is of the opinion that Stadlober “will probably bring in a new line”.
Katharina Liensberger argues similarly. It is not decisive whether a man or a woman is at the top, but that “the president can work well and purposefully”. But she is also expecting a “breath of fresh air” from the neo-president.
Schützenhilfe also comes from the ÖSV women’s head coach Christian Mitter. “It’s good for us, I like it,” says the Styrian. She is a “good woman who has already done a lot for women,” he adds. Technology specialist Manuel Feller leans a little further out the window: “I believe that women tend to be better managers”.
