“Sports Chaplain Jörg Walcher at the Olympic Games in Sochi”
The senior ecclesial committee of the Protestant Churches in Austria (Lutheran and Reformed) have asked the Austrian Olympic Committee to accredit Jörg Walcher as Olympic Chaplain for the Austrian Protestant Churches at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. This was suggested by Sr. Mag. Gerhard Krömer, the Lutheran pastor of Schladming, venue of the 2013 Alpine Skiing World Championship. According to Lutheran Bishop Dr. Michael Bünker one of the main reasons for the invitation extended to Jörg Walcher was his committed chaplaincy support to athletes and their teams during the Alpine Skiing World Championship in Schladming.
