The award ceremony at yesterday’s Biathlon World Championships in Pokljuka went without a spectator, a staging through and through. Only the protagonist’s tears were real. Lisa Hauser of all people, the passionate dirndl and traditional costume wearer from Reith
Kitzbühel, the synonym for staying on the ground in top-class sport that is often trimmed for self-portrayal, received a gold medal yesterday. A career changer from the cross-country skiing camp, too, who only found her way to biathlon at the age of 17 on the advice of a trainer.
After partial successes in previous years, Hauser’s run of success only started this year in January, because suddenly the season’s goal, a podium place, was implemented. And a World Cup victory followed immediately. With modest hopes it went to the World Cup in Pokljuka, where the coronation followed with gold (mass start) and two silver (individual, mixed relay).
One shouldn’t have expected that in a sport that requires a balance between pulse rate and accuracy of shot, because at least two dozen people are eligible for podium places in every race, sometimes even more.
What else can be said about Lisa Hauser? That she would like to continue enriching brass music with her flute, if time allowed. And otherwise Lisa Hauser loves to be with her family at home in Reith
To be in Kitzbühel, to give mother a hand in the ice cream shop during the summer months or to enjoy nature with her friend Lorenz. The world title will not do much in her life – Lisa Hauser saw herself richly gifted by life even before the gold medal. (escaped)
