After the Schladming show - "I'm sorry!" Feller thinks of his fans

After dropping out in Kitzbühel and Wengen, Manuel Feller, despite second place after the first round, didn’t make it to the podium in Schladming either. The Tyrolean is especially sorry for the fans.

“I like fourth place anywhere else, but it would have been nice to be on the podium here. Also for the audience!” said Feller at the finish. “Seven hundredths are missing, but for us it’s all about hundredths. I’m sorry, but that’s the way it is.” In front of almost 40,000 spectators, Feller slipped off the podium by a hair’s breadth after finishing second in the first race. “It’s already extremely painful, it’s probably the worst fourth place in my career,” said the 30-year-old at the finish, where he had finished third last year. “The form is right” Particularly bitter: Stayed for the fifth time thus the ÖSV in the 26th Nightrace of Schladming without a place on the podium. Already in 2002, 2011, 2015 and 2020 we got nothing. But Feller is confident, at least for the World Cup, said despite relapsing in the final: “The form is right – and the team’s result is also impressive.”
