Kamil Stoch found his shape
For long three weeks Kamil Stoch had to look after his missing shape - in Titisee-Neustadt he obviously found it. After his podium finish yesterday the Pole secured his first season's win after jumps at 142.5 and 138.5 metres. Indeed the second-placed Simon Ammann (SUI, Fischer) jumped 142.5 and 141.5 metres but he showed a two-foot-landing in his first round and lost a few points against Stoch. Noriaki Kasai (JPN, Fischer), 41 years of age, came in third followed by Anders Bardal (NOR, Fischer) and Janne Ahonen (FIN, Fischer) who increased from twelve to five. Taku Takeuchi (JPN, Fischer) finished sixth followed by his compatriot Daiki Ito (JPN, Fischer). Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT, Fischer) and Severin Freund (GER, Fischer) tied for eighth place, Maciej Kot (POL, Fischer) came in tenth. The competition was clouded by a serious fall of Thomas Morgenstern (AUT, Fischer): The Austrian crashed in the first round after his landing contracted injuries at his upper part of the body, right hand and skin after the first clinical diagnostics.
