Richard Freitag (GER, Fischer) secured his first World Cup victory ahead of his brand mates Thomas Morgenstern (AUT, Fischer) and Severin Freund (GER, Fischer). Unbelievable: all athletes who made the top 20 succeeded with Fischer.
Like father, like son
Nearly 29 years ago Richard Freitags father secured his one and only World Cup victory in Harrachov. Therefor today's victory was something special for Richard Freitag - not only because it was his first World Cup victory ever. "This is my first victory in the World Cup. It’s difficult to describe how I feel, it’s amazing. Right now I still don’t know how to express my feelings. I feel really good and I jumped well today. My father won his only World Cup competition here and I’ll do my best that this will not remain my only victory. I’m sure that he will be just as happy as I am", said Freitag.

He jumped 129 and 137,5 metres and was 8,5 points ahead of Thomas Morgenstern who became second. Severin Freund finished third and made the podium together with his team mate Richard Freitag.

Fischer dominates everything
Like every day in ski jumping Fischer was the best brand again and all other athletes in top twenty were Fischer eagles, too. Anders Bardal (NOR) confirmed his great shape and became forth ahead of Andreas Kofler (AUT) and Robert Kranjec (SLO). David Zauner (AUT) finished seventh ahead of his team mate Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT), Michael Neumayer (GER) and Simon Ammann (SUI).
