Austria has so many great female vaulters this season that the trial was pretty hard. Selection trials were the CVI Ebreichsdorf and today’s competition between the several federal states. Isabel Fiala finished as third today but was only 7th Austrian in Ebreichsdorf. Nicole Kirbisch was 3rd at the CVI but 6th at the BLMM today. Both were not nominated.
At first it looked like Seefeld had a chance to represent Austria. They were best Austrian team at the CVI where Club 43 was not able to compete. Club 43 won the BLMM with 0.5 points infrontof Seefeld.
Austria used all possible spaces except of one. This is very good, especially that they had costs of 65.000 Euros for last year’s championships.
