“One of the main goals of the strategy 2024 is to provide the best possible support and infrastructure for our athletes. Our last Olympic Medal dates back to 2008 when Ludwig Paischer won Silver. As one of the most successful Olympic Summer Sports of Austria, it is our ambition to constantly appear in the medal table,” explains Martin Poiger.
“This doesn’t mean that we need to reinvent the wheel and to change everything. Clearly, this would be the wrong approach. We want to keep local knowledge, but we will also require a fresh breeze coming from international experts. The ideal balance between consistency and improvement needs to be found.”
