Once again the Fischer-jumpers dominated a ski jumping competition this year. Six athletes with Fischer ski were ahead when Andreas Kofler (AUT, Fischer) celebrated his second victory this winter.

Six in a row
Only seventh place was not occupied by a Fischer-athlete in the top ten: Six jumpers with Fischer skis took the first six places at the normal hill in Lillehammer. Andreas Kofler was the best jumper again and secured his second victory due to a great jump at 105 metres. "Because of my back problems I
had to change my training over the last couple of months. That’s a challenge but also risky, but it seems I have found the right mix", Kofler said. "At the moment I’m having a good feeling and of course the victories give me a lot of self confidence. My first jump was perfect, and this was the foundation for the victory." In the final round Richard Freitag shortened the gap with a 103,5 metres-jump and cheered about his first World Cup podium. Kamil Stoch (POL) became third with a large gap ahead of the Czechs Roman Koudelka and Lukas Hlava. Gregor Schlierenzauer had a good jump in the final and improved from position 21 to six.  Vladimir Zografski (BUL), Simon Ammann (SUI) and Jernej Damjan (SLO) finished eight to ten.
