Marcel Hirscher, the 8-card winner of the BHG, who finished his career in 2019, became the culprit of a stir (in the ski media community) when photos and videos of his training in Reuteralm were scattered on the networks. Although Hirscher’s “staff” does not confirm his intention to return at the moment, there are persistent rumors that the Austrian alpine skiing star is on his way back.
The coach of the Austrian team, Andreas Pulacher, did not confirm the possibility of Hirscher’s return,but did not deny it.
“Marcel trained with us, participated in giant slalom training. He really liked it, he wanted to go skiing again. From what I’ve seen, one thing I can tell you is that he’s still in shape. Puelacher told the Austrian media.
Marcel was training in Reuteralm with our giant slalom team, “he added,” and he wanted to ride for fun again. I can see that he is in good shape, but he is still very far away from returning, so we did not discuss it. Marcel has always enjoyed riding, but it still doesn’t mean anything. We’ll see if it can get him hooked again, but it won’t be immediately clear. Of course, we would like to see him back in the team.»
31-year-old Hirscher also posted a video on Instagram with the caption “That’s what it is about»
