Kamil Stoch (POL) and Sara Takanashi (JPN) are named the winners at the beginning of the last pre-olympic skijumping World Cup in Willingen and Hinzenbach.
Kamil Stoch defeats Severin Freund by one point
Very shortly Severin Freund (GER) missed his World Cup success in front of his home crowd in Willingen. Despite the German alltogether jumped 1.5 metres more than winning Pole but Stoch succeeded due to better style points in his first round. After jumps at 139.5 and 145.5 metres the Pole secured his third season's win. Behind Severin Freund Jernej Damjan (SLO) could celebrate his third podium spot in a row. The 41-year-old Noriaki Kasai (JPN) shortly missed another podium finishing fourth ahead of Robert Kranjec (SLO). Jurij Tepes (SLO) egalized the hill record with jumping 152 metres in the first round but dropped back to sixth spot after 137 metres in his final round followed by his fellow Peter Prevc (SLO). Andreas Wellinger (GER) was the second-best German athlete finishing eighth followed by Daiki Ito (JPN) and Four-Hills winner Thomas Diethart (AUT) who was the best Austrian eagle today.

Sara Takanashi again unbeatable
As well in Hinzenbach Japanese high-flyer Sara Takanashi was unbeatable again. The Japanese who was beaten this winter just once by Irina Avvakumova (RUS) and twice by Daniela Iraschko-Stolz (AUT) succeded with jumps at 87 and 90 metres and scored her ninth season's success within twelve individual events. After the final jump she was round about five points ahead of Austria's Iraschko-Stolz who reached the longest jump of the day with 90.5 metres but as well as all the other girls she stayed far away from her own hill record with 96 metres. Maja Vtic (SLO) came in third followed by Carina Vogt (GER). Yuki Ito (JPN) finished fifth ahead of Ramona Straub (GER) and Irina Avvakumova. Julia Kykkänen (FIN) increased from 17 to eight in the final followed by Eva Logar (SLO) and Ursa Bogataj (SLO).
