The first down and most affected by the bug was Kathrin Hitzer who went to the hospital for two days and then home to recover. After another training session Tina Bachmann had to stay in bed, then Nadine Horchler. Among our support people the physiotherapist was almost well again when the scientific assistant went home before the training ended; a sign that he felt really bad because hardly any pain can keep Stefan from working. The next and last one was my coach Gerald who went down. This means five athletes, one coach and the chef were the last ones standing. I then left the camp early, something that had been planned for a while. I went to Ruhpolding to meet with the American team where I still am and from where I will write the next entry.
Until then best regards.
