Thomas Morgenstern spent his New Year in Germany competing in the Four Hills ski jumping events at Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Oberstdorf, as he explains in his latest blog.
It seems like we have to get used to wind, snow and difficult conditions this season. Again it has been quite chaotic, but in the end the officials made the right decision yesterday by re-running the first heat.
Although the conditions have not been easy for me, I'm happy with my performance and the result. We are all looking forward to an exciting tournament. :) All the best to Tom Hilde, [who was injured and will be out for the season] I hope I will see him back on the hill as soon as possible.
In Garmisch-Partenkirchen everything is fine so far. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you! Think of me when you have your party. All I will do is drink one glass of sparkling wine! ;)
