My season objective: To play for the Austrian National Team
Breaking a vertebrae during the Ice Hockey Training
How close is paraplegia and death?
Until January 2003: Rehabilitation. A blessing in disguise.
In the short film "ILMING on ICE" I have
documented my Ice Hockey history and a new insight to living:
Danube Island Vienna 1997:
While skating, a real beginner jumps into a Inline Hockey
Match. Immediately she finds herself fascinated in
the middle of motion, speed and fun. To chase the ball...
shoot goald. To step from Inline Hockey on to the ice is a
logical consequence: Ice Hockey becomes her new passion
and leads her via Italy to Vienna and Graz. Her new objective
is the participation at the Olympics Torino 2006. But
during a training session in september 2002 her career as
icehockeyplayer is suddenly interrupted. The end of her dream
of Olympics Torino 2006. Or maybe not?
