Martin Koch (AUT, Fischer) succeeded in a very windy competition at Holmenkollen in Oslo. He sent Severin Freund (GER, Fischer) and Robert Kranjec (SLO, Fischer) to the next positions.
Koch with a solid performance
Martin Koch showed the fourthbest jumps in both rounds and this performance was enough to celebrate victory in Oslo. The Carinthian jumped 130,5 and 130 metres and was ten points ahead of Severin Freund after two rounds - that means his first World Cup win ever at a large hill. The German had to fight with difficult conditions in the first round and moved up from ten to two in the final round shortly followed by Slovenian Robert Kranjec. Fourth went to Daiki Ito (JPN, Fischer), he was in the lead after one jump. Simon Ammann (SUI, Fischer) finished fifth ahead of Richard Freitag (GER, Fischer) and Piotr Zyla (POL, Fischer). Andreas Kofler (AUT, Fischer) and Anders Bardal (NOR, Fischer) had a lot of bad luck in the first respectively in the final round and came in ninth and tenth. Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT, Fischer) had a lot of bad luck either and was only 27th after the first round, Thomas Morgenstern (AUT, Fischer) and Roman Koudelka (CZE, Fischer) even missed the final.
