The Herminator School - How Winners Are Made
Die Herminatoren-Schule: Wie Sieger gemacht werden
The report seeks answers to this question by accompanying the next generation of hopefuls at the ski schools of Schladming and Stams. The camera follows the sportsmen and women through the tight daily schedule between school and the "power plants". It shows the methods and tricks their trainers use in stamping out the tiniest flaws of coordination and snow training, and how mental barriers are handled in the Qi Gong course. In addition to the sensitive portraits of young Austrian skiers, a star-lit group of ski legends also have their say. From the 1964 Olympics winner Olga Pall to Toni Sailer, Karl Schranz, Annemarie Moser-Pröll, Franz Klammer and the current shooting star Benni Raich, the ski idols give the next generation a glimpse of the secrets of their success. They also comment on the future of the ski circus and offer surprising explanations for the phenomenon, Hermann Maier.
