Kamil Stoch (POL, Fischer) is back on top of the podium after his two gold medals in Sochi. In Lahti he sent Severin Freund (GER, Fischer) and Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT, Fischer) to the following spots. In Women's World Cup in Rasnov (ROU) Jessica Jerome (USA, Fischer) made a podium.
Stoch with knee problems after his long jump
Many male and female ski jumpers suffered with knee problems after the Olympic Games. To them obviously Kamil Stoch belongs to. The Pole was ranked second after the first round behind double winner from Falun and Lahti Severin Freund, but in the final he used his strong head wind for great 134.5 metres. At this width the double Olympic Champion even showed an excellent telemark but in the outrun he touched his left knee, his face contorted with pain. "I was so high in the air, I would have never thought to land this jump. But my knee is okay", Kamil Stoch gave the all-clear. After that great width Severin Freund shortened the inrun after coach decision - his 129.5 metres with worse style points than the Pole weren't enough to beat Stoch. Behind Stoch and Freund Gregor Schlierenzauer was ranked third followed by his team- and brand mates Stefan Kraft (AUT, Fischer) and Andreas Kofler (AUT, Fischer), Michael Hayböck (AUT, Fischer) came in seventh. Noriaki Kasai (JPN, Fischer) participated today after doctor's examination who didn't find a serious ACL injury - the Japanese finished ninth. He lost some points especially in the first round when he waived the telemark on jumping 128 metres.

Jessie Jerome runner-up in Romania
US-girl Jessica Jerome relaized her best carreer's World Cup result in World Cup in Rasnov (ROU). The 27-year-old who was born in Florida where she also lived her first years of life was only beaten by the outstanding Japanese Sara Takanashi (JPN).

Maren Lundby (NOR, Fischer) was ranked fifth today followed by Yuki Ito (JPN, Fischer) who both made a podium yesterday.
