Olympic champion Eric Frenzel: The King of the Combine – Sport

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


The goal was still a few feet away, Eric Frenzel but still raised his arms. The native Saxon wanted to enjoy his very big moment for a long time. But after he crossed the finish line, he stooped his upper body exhausted forward, silver medalist Akito Watabe from Japan came and supported him. Such a finale, as Frenzel had demonstrated on Wednesday at the ski jumping and cross-country skiing in Pyeongchang, just cost strength. It was not to be expected that Frenzel after fifth place in jumping over the ten kilometers cross-country skiing would beat the competitors so sovereign , In the German team they call him "Effe". But what does that mean with Eric Frenzel, whom they call "Effe" in the German team and who can handle the pressure at the Olympics better than most. He is a down to earth boy. The wearing of the flag at the entrance of German athletes at the opening ceremony, he did not use to make big fanfare about his person. On Wednesday he has also done statistically amazing thing: Frenzel is only the third athlete who could repeat an Olympic victory in the nordic combination of the normal hill. Already after the jump, the national coach Hermann Weinbuch had called the changing wind conditions as a "lottery", Eric Frenzel was quite sure that he would be ahead: "I caught the jump well, the wind too. I have a great starting position. "Not everyone thought so. Franz-Josef Rehrl had won the jumping sovereignly and dreamed of his lead of 15 seconds on the second Jan Magnus Riiber (Norway) – it was even 36 seconds on Frenzel – of a lot. When he left the jumping stadium, Rehrl exclaimed unmistakably: "That's really cool." But it was soon no longer for the Austrian, after all, he was overrun by Frenzl and other colleagues and ultimately came only to rank 13. Bronze brought his compatriot Lukas Klapfer. Johannes Rydzek narrowly misses the podiumFrench World Cup victory had Frenzel this season retracted, the Olympic champion and five-time world champion faltered. And: Frenzel is 29 years old. That's probably already a mature age on the 10 kilometers. Because since 1964 he is now the oldest runner who won this competition at the Winter Games. That he has done so so superior, of course, given his miserable season demands respect.

"Rydzek had to swallow a bit as he said these words. He's been on the same level as Frenzel for a while, and since the Bavarian is still three years younger, he also has a better perspective. But it still remains for him the combination with the large hill and the team competition in these games. Strange atmosphere on the groundThe stranger and less sensational than the race was the surrounding area in the Alpensia Nordic Park. From the loudspeakers clattered – as so often in this competition – funfair technology. Shortly before Eric Frenzel started his finale, the moderators who were moderating in English were delighted that DJ Ötzi's cover version of the "Old Baby" Hey Baby is finally being thrown to a South Korean audience with full acoustic force. The two presenters even sang loudly and obliquely over their microphones. Olympic 2018! The Korean spectators on the unadorned tubular steel grandstands in the cross-country stadium, who were only half full, put it away with the friendliness of the host. Maybe they did not know what was being played. By the way, music is also a hobby of Eric Frenzel, but DJ Ötzi is not on his personal hit list. Frenzel was still mental on his big run half an hour later. "In the final meters, I could enjoy it a bit," he said. He could hardly believe that this had worked out so far after the season so far. "That was not so easy for me in the end."
