If you do not panic - everything will be fine: Markus Eisenbichler

Ski jumper Markus "Eisei" Eisenbichler made his debut in the Ski Jumping World Cup in 2011 at the kick-off of the Four Hills Tournament in Oberstdorf - where he immediately won his first World Cup point. The nature-loving Bavarian enriches the ski jumping scene with his down-to-earth nature and is always good for a surprise on the jumping hill. He won his first major individual title from the large hill at the World Championships in Seefeld in 2019.
