The DAV is sending a total of 10 athletes to the Olympic Qualifier Series, and national coach Ingo Filzwieser believes all of them have a good chance of qualifying for the Olympics. “We have good hopes that we will be able to present two or three of them in Paris.”

Alex Megos thinks he has a good chance of qualifying, even if the road has been a bit bumpy for him up to this point. “Nevertheless, I tried to prepare as best as I could and will give it my all.”
