"Courage means that one's own actions must not be dictated by fear." (Toni Innauer on September 19th, 2020 when asked how he managed to race down a ski jump and show world-class performances despite his fear of heights.)
"Mister Skisprung", as Toni Innauer is deservedly called, let his Olympic gold medal from 1980 from Lake Placid (USA) pass around during the evening. The audience gained insights into his outstanding career as a ski jumper (2x gold at the Olympic Games and World Ski Championships in Lake Placid in 1980, several silver medals) but also as a ski flyer.

Innauer's team was able to achieve many successes in the sports of ski jumping, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined and biathlon.
