Marco Huck, you are currently at a training camp close to the Baltic Sea. How are you feeling?
Marco Huck: I am feeling really good. The surrounding here is ideal for a good preparation. It is just a few steps from the hotel to the gym - and just a few more to the beach. We also have a great spa where I can relax after a hard day's work. I am getting to my best, which I will be come June 8.
Would you say that preparations are more intense when you are at a training cam...
