Totschnig and Goetschl "Athletes of the year"
Renate Goetschl and Georg Totschnig
 

Cycling-Star Georg Totschnig and the Ski-Alpine-Racer Renate Goetschl – also called “Speed Queen” – are Austria’s “Sportsmen of the year”. Around 200 members of Sports Media Austria elected these two popular Athletes and also the twice World Champions in Ski-Jumping as the best team of the year 2005. As one of the highlights at the big “Lottery-Gala night of Sports” in the design center Linz the best athletes in all categories were honoured by Dr. Heinz Fischer, the Federal President of the Republic of Austria, and Michael Kuhn, the President of Sports Media Austria. Especially winner Georg Totschnig was surprised: “I never thought, that I can beat Benny Raich – but I am very happy!” Totschnig, as well as Ski-Racer Raich Tyrolean, has broken off his holidays on the island of Cyprus to come to Linz. His big success in this year was the victory at one of the most important alps stages at the Tour de France – he has been the first stage-winner of Austria at the Tour de France for 74 years. And this was the reason, that Austria’s Sports Journalists elected him with 81 first places and Raich only with 70. Benny was two times world champion and won five medals at the Alpine Skiing-World Championships this year in Bormio. “So, I must take five times Gold at the Olympics in Torino – perhaps then I get the award Sportsmen of the year”, he smiled. Third was also a Ski-Racer – Hermann Maier. In the Ladies category Renate Goetschl celebrated her second award after 1997. The styrian ski-girl won the election, behind her table tennis European champion Liu Jia and Mirna Jukic (swimming). Martin Höllwarth, Wolfgang Loitzl, Thomas Morgenstern and Andreas Widhölzl were elected as the best team – these four guys took two gold medals in Ski-Jumping at the World Championships in Oberstdorf. Behind them: the Football-Team of Rapid Vienna and Werner Schlager/Karl Jindrak, Double European champions in Table Tennis. The gala with 1600 guests was a big success. Some of the guests also were delegates from the Winter Olympics Torino 2006 – they made a presentation for the Austrian Press in advance of the Gala-Night.
