Bern – The four-time Olympic champion Simon Ammann continues his ski jumping career and has his sights set on the next winter games.
“I plan to continue for two more years,” the 38-year-old Swiss citizen said in a statement from the association. “My focus is on the next two major events, the World Cup in Oberstdorf 2021 and especially the 2022 Winter Olympics.” The 24th World Cup season is coming up for Ammann in the coming winter.
The Toggenburger’s greatest success was a long time ago: in Salt Lake City in 2002 and eight years later in Vancouver, he won two gold medals at the Winter Games. In the season that ended prematurely due to the coronavirus, Ammann had only taken 35th place in the overall World Cup. “The learning effects from last winter still give me a lot of confidence on the way,” he said.
