Interview Fred Zoz

Hei Fred, the first training is going on and the summer season is coming nearer. You will be the co-coach for the ladies next season. What do you think about women-skijumping in general? Do you think it's a good thing to let them jump from large hills next season (Holmenkollen)? Or is it too early for that?

About ladies ski jumping: I've always been interested about it. In the years 2001 to 2006,when i was coach of the Autrans ski club, I always worked with few ladies and 1 of them was Caroline Espiau, so I've always follow carrefully the girls. But over that point, what I like the most, is the challenge, to help to our talented Ladies to build a stronger team with Olympic Games 2014 as a target! About Oslo, I know our girls can fly there! So no problem for us ;)

Your first trainingscamp ends today. How was it?

Our first training camp was very nice. A bit short but intensive. We had some meeting with the coaches, director & doctor with our ladies, and some presentation about the next season. Of course some jumping session, and many physical test. The contact has been great, I've been very well welcome in the team.

What do you expect from the girls during the summer competitions?

We have not set any precise goals yet

What do you think about the mixed competition in Hinterzarten?

About the mixed competition, I'am of course very positive !! It's a big chance for us, and also, I think that this kind of competition is the things that many poeples like so, I like it.

What do you expect from Manu Chedal for summer? Will he be able to come back to the worlds best jumpers? And will Vince be able to show more good performances like at the end of last season?

It is not myjob to answer! I'm not in the men's staff anymore. But of course I believe in Manu's come back!!! And for Vince as well !!!
