NORWAY AHEAD OF AUSTRIA IN TEAM COMPETITION
Team Norway with four Fischer-athletes Anders Bardal, Bjoern Einar Romoeren, Vegard-Haukoe Sklett and Tom Hilde claimed victory in the team competition in Harrachov (CZE) ahead of Austria and Slovenia.
Norway in great shape
For the first time since February 2010 Austria was beaten in a skijumping team competition. Especially Anders Bardal and Bjoern Einar Romoeren showed two very long jumps and secured important points against Austria. Thomas Morgenstern, David Zauner, Andreas Kofler and Gregor Schlierenzauer (all Fischer) were not in their best form and finished with 37 points behind after eight jumps. "It’s extremely nice to celebrate this victory. The Austrian team was so good in the past years, but we did well today and are very happy. For tomorrow I hope that I can jump as good as in my second jump today", said Hilde.
Slovenias Fischer-jumpers Jernej Damjan and Robert Kranjec (all Fischer) secured third place ahead of Germany with the three Fischer eagles Michael Neumayer, Richard Freitag and Severin Freund (all Fischer).
