Richard Freitag will be back on the German team for the World Cup in Lillehammer. He takes the place of Maximilian Mechler.

About ten weeks after he suffered a fatigue fracture of the left metatarsal, Richard Freitag will make his comeback in the World Cup. After the team doctors gave him the all-clear last week, the 22-year-old started jumping again. Freitag was training in Ramsau together with coach Tino Haase and was satisfied with his first ten jumps. "I didn't feel any pain, feel fit and want to reach my top level again in the competitions as soon as possible", said Freitag.

Head coach Werner Schuster is satisfied with how the healing process went. "Richard was patient and followed the advice of Dr. Mark Dorfmueller", Schuster told. "After Richard was able to start with specific physical and jumping training, it's now important for him to compete again. Starting on the small hill in Lillehammer is perfect for that", explained Schuster. 

Richard Freitag is optimistic for his comeback: "I'm really looking forward to jumping again and being part of the team. I want to reinforce the team and I'm motivated to show good performances." 

"The start of the season was very demanding, therefore we appreciate it even more that we were on the podium in every competition. Richard made his first jumps on the hill in Ramsau and was doing well. So the competition on the normal hill offers a good opportunity to further improve his shape in a competition. We hope that Richard will be in top shape for the 4-Hills-Tournament and can be a reinforcement for the team there. At the same time he will continue his physcial training. Richard now benefits from the foundation he laid during summer", Werner Schuster concluded.
