Magnus Krog (NOR)


Magnus Krog (NOR, Fischer) made a podium at World Cup in Kuusamo. The Norwegian secured second place after his triumph in Kuusamo last year.

Krog, always top in Kuusamo?
Tracks and bitterly cold in Kuusamo seems to be in Krog's nature. The 25 year old Norwegian just missed the victory behind best jumper Lamy Chappuis (FRA) but in the final stretch nobody of the chasing groop of eleven was able to beat. Krog was in 14th position after jumping and started nearly one minute behind into skiing - after the race there were just 13 seconds left. In fourth position Eric Frenzel (GER, Fischer) shortly missed the podium and left Mario Stecher (AUT, Fischer skis and boots) behind. Sixth went to Miroslav Dvorak (CZE, Fischer) followed by Jan Schmid (NOR, Fischer skis and boots). Bernhard Gruber (AUT, Fischer skis and boots) became eighth ahead ofAkito Watabe (JPN, Fischer skis and boots) and Marjan Jelenko (SLO, Fischer).
