100 Years: Fieberbrunn Ski Racing Club

fieberbrunn austria tyrol tirol ski team vintage postcard 1914This real photo postcard found in Innsbruck is from 1914, making it one of the older images in my collection.  To the best of my understanding, this is a ski racing club from Fierberbrunn in the Tyrol region of Austria.

The armbands are curious to me and I am wondering if they are athletic in nature or have something to do with the onset of World War I?  Does anyone have any knowledge or thoughts?
