A star for me and you – Sven Hannawald inagurates action week
The action week started on Monday with a highlight: Sven Hannawald, former champion of the Four Hills Tournament, came to talk about his experience with pressure to perform and mental problems as he fought successfully against a burn-out. “Children are our future, so it is essential to early recognize difficulties, to lift burdens from their shoulders and to talk about fears”, says Michael Maurer, president of SC Partenkirchen. “Sven speaks from experience, he can impart his knowledge to the kids and that is why we are so happy to have him here for these action days.”
