My father has been a great source of motivation for me throughout the years and now he can be proud of me. This gold medal really means a lot to my family, “Johanes shared.
Before going into Olympic history, the best achievement that Jonhanes Strolz achieved was only the top 10 final position in the 8 World Cups he participated. Last month, he won the Adelboden race to win a place in Beijing and immediately got this precious Olympic gold medal.
