Mario Stecher is an experienced athlete who has gained a lot of success, competing already for 15 years in the international level in the Nordic combined. Still, there isn’t any lack of competitiveness because Mario is now preparing for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics with individual medal as his ambitious goal. That shining dream demands countless number of training sessions in both cross-country skiing and ski jumping. Polar training computers have been a huge part of those long training hours through Mario’s long career, helping him learn to know his body better. Now Mario is aiming for some more success with the Polar RS800CX and its unrivaled multisport features. In Austria, Mario has also some great opportunities for cycling in which he relies on Polar CS600X.
