unfavorable wind conditions, the team competition today was quickly moved from
the Large Hill to the Normal Hill in Lahti. Seems like the Austrians didn’t
care about that and secured the victory by scoring 892.1 points. “It was a
tough competition as we normally don’t jump on the Normal Hill”, Martin Koch
said after the competition.
Austrians always were clearly in front, the fight for the other podium places
was still exciting. At the end Germany with Andreas Wank, Severin Freund, Richard
Freitag (all Fischer) and Maximilian Mechler secured second place, only 0.6
points ahead of Poland. The third best team consisted of Maciej Kot, Aleksander
Zniszczol, Kamil Stoch (all Fischer) and Klemens Muranka.
