Felix Neureuther (38) mourns his mother, ski legend Rosi Mittermaier († 72). She died yesterday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen surrounded by her family after a serious illness.
Only two years ago Mittermaier celebrated her 70th birthday. At that time, her son Felix Neureuther made a public declaration of love in the “Welt am Sonntag”. At that time, Neureuther wrote, he experienced again what emotions and happiness his mother would have triggered in people.
Despite the “many obligations and opportunities, you subordinated everything to us children and family, you were always there for us, for my sister and me,” wrote Felix Neureuther. […] It was never about trophies for you, but only about values. I still feel that every day.”

The ski star also wrote that his mother and father had always set an example for him to be down-to-earth and love nature. “That you always stick together as a family! And have respect for everyone!” Said the 38-year-old, who has two children with his wife Miriam Neureuther (32). “All of that shapes me to this day, and that’s exactly what I want to pass on to our children with Miri. “As a grandmother, you are unique. Nothing shakes you and no matter how much the children scream, everything bounces off you and only love can be felt.”
His mother Rosi would be “pretty inflexible and very honest,” Neureuther enthused. “I wish you that you stay happy and healthy, that you can ski with your grandchildren and climb the mountains with them. I am incredibly grateful to have you.”
