SEVERIN FREUND TRIUMPHATES ON HOLMENKOLLEN FOR THE FIRST TIME
Severin Freund (GER, Fischer) celebrated another World Cup win at ski jumping World Cup on Holmenkollen. Anders Bardal (NOR, Fischer) came in second ahead of Kamil Stoch (POL, Fischer).
Severin Freund continued on his high
"To win on Holmenkollen is something special. Already at the World Champs some years ago I noticed it is a special place. At the end of my jump I lost my ski a bit because the wind was gone in both rounds but in general it were two more or less good jumps", Severin Freund stated after his jumps at 132 and 130.5 metres which were the longest jumps in both rounds. With this result he left Anders Bardal 13 points behind, Kamil Stoch was even 20 points back. But the overall World Cup ranking is more or less safe for the Pole now, his rival Peter Prevc (SLO) became only eleventh. Noriaki Kasai (JPN, Fischer) missed the podium shortly, Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT, Fischer) was ranked fifth followed by Kaarel Nurmsalu (EST, Fischer). Roman Koudelka (CZE, Fischer) convinced his rising shape again and sent Stefan Kraft (AUT, Fischer) and Jakub Janda (CZE, Fischer) to spots eight and nine.
