Maren Lundby succeeds in Trondheim and wins the RAW AIR

Maren Lundby (NOR, Fischer) is the first RAW AIR overall winner among the ski jumping ladies. After her victory in Trondheim (NOR), the Norwegian has a 56.5 point lead ahead of second-placed Katharina Althaus (GER, Fischer).

Maren Lundby is the dominant ski jumper of the ladies' first RAW AIR. After three competitions and three qualifications on the large hills in Oslo, Lillehammer and Trondheim she won the overall ranking with 56.5 points ahead of Katharina Althaus. Also in today's competition in Trondheim the 24-year-old was again unbeatable with jumping 133 and 133.5 meters. "I’m so satisfied with the overall victory. This was my main goal for the season along with winning gold in Seefeld at the World Championships. The RAW AIR is brutal, but I managed to cope with the pressure and all the traveling. It’s a victory I’ll never forget. I love the RAW AIR. My next target is to win the Bluebird tournament in Russia", she said. After the first round Eva Pinkelnig (AUT) was still within striking distance with only five points behind, but in the final the Norwegian jumped (almost) all of them. Only Juliane Seyfarth (GER) jumped four meters further in the final which meant second place for the German. With jumping 127.5 meters twice, Daniela Iraschko-Stolz (AUT, Fischer) clearly missed the podium in fourth place, but was still ahead of Katharina Althaus, who fell back from three to five. Chiara Hölzl (AUT, Fischer) came in seventh, tenth went to Anna Odine Strøm (NOR, Fischer).
