The past year was extremely successful for Heino and his son. After their World Championship success and the associated role as the favourite in the Olympic season, they are now more in focus than ever. On the Olympic track in Oberschleißheim near Munich, the Zeidlers will give their very best to ensure that Olli will be able to surpass the year 2019. Also, for Heino, the Olympic Games would be a long-awaited dream that would finally come true.
