Alpine Skier Felix Neureuther Shocks Germany With April Fools Joke
Radio channel Bayern 1 and German Alpine skier FELIX NEUREUTHER "have shocked Germany with an April Fools joke," according to the KURIER. In an interview with Bayern 1, Neureuther said, "I've simply received an extremely great offer from the Austrian Ski Federation, which the Germans couldn't compete against. Therefore, I will now compete for Austria." He added, "I hope Germany isn't going to be angry with me." He also said that money was an "integral part" of his decision (KURIER, 4/1).
