One of the representatives for Austria in the Olympic Games in London this summer will be the Judoka Ludwig Paischer.
However, the Olympic Games are not new to him, he already participated twice – in Athens in 2004, where he failed in the first round, and in Beijing in 2008, where he won a silver medal.
This week the 31-year-old athlete was exercising intensively in Salzburg, where he is originally from.
He claims that this year everything is possible – from a gold medal to a total failure.
Mr. Paischer also says that the outcome depends on his physical and mental state on the day of the contest and the drawing. He confidently adds that he knows that he can be at the very top.
Ludwig Paischer’s first Olympic contest will already take place on the 28 July – the first day of the Olympic Games.
