In Austria they hope for Feuz as a talent promoter

Beat Feuz has found a second home in Oberperfuss near Innsbruck. The Tyroleans have taken the Schangnauer so dear to their hearts that they would love to hire him for their young skiers.

In the center of Oberperfuss there are heated discussions in the M1 restaurant. The fact that Austria is almost 1000 points behind Switzerland in the Alpine Nations Cup obviously hurts the pride of the three elderly men at the regulars’ table. “We just don’t have any good young people behind Kriechmayr at the moment,” complains Peter. “And it drives me crazy when the reporters try to sell us a 25-year-old Austrian as a talent.”

“With the Norwegians and the Swiss, the real talents are at most 20,” rumbles Fritz. Now Ewald speaks up. “Maybe our favorite Swiss Beat Feuz will take care of our offspring after he resigns?” The three gentlemen raise their beer glasses to this idea. Because although Beat Feuz grew up in the country of the arch-rival in the Alps, the Emmentaler is “one of us!” for Oberperfer. In 2007, at the Junior World Championships in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Feuz won not only two gold medals and one bronze medal, but also the heart of top performer Katrin Triendl. Three years ago, the Olympic champion built a house in the 3,000-inhabitant community, which is 15 kilometers west of Innsbruck. «I meet the beat regularly when he’s strolling through the village with his pram. He is such a nice person, without any star airs, »enthuses Ewald.
