Happy with the ÖSV eagles. On Saturday, Stefan Kraft secured second place in the first of two World Cup competitions at Holmenkollen in Oslo. The man from Salzburg only had to admit defeat to the Slovenian Anze Lanisek in the competition, which is part of the Raw Air series, and finished second, 5.8 points behind. The German Karl Geiger came in third. Michael Hayböck finished eleventh as the second best ÖSV eagle.
After the first round, Stefan Kraft leads with a 129.5 meter leap just ahead of the Norwegian Johann ANDre Forfang and Lanisek. But the Slovenian was able to overtake the Austrian in the final with a jump to the highest jump of the day of 139.5 meters. Kraft, on the other hand, was unable to catch up in changing wind conditions and landed at 128.5 meters. For Lanisek it was the first success at Holmenkollen. Meanwhile, Forfang dropped back to tenth place. Hayböck, on the other hand, improved by eight places with 132.5 m in the second round.
Daniel Tschofenig was 14th. Manuel Fettner was unlucky, coming into the final in tenth place and having to deal with binding problems before his second jump. He ended up dropping six places and finishing 16th.
Another men’s large hill event is scheduled for Sunday in Oslo (4:30 p.m.). In the Raw Air series, there are nine consecutive days of qualifications and competitions to be completed. The points achieved in the qualification are counted.
