RAW AIR Leader Stefan Kraft third in Trondheim

Stefan Kraft (AUT, Fischer) achieved a podium finish in ski jumping World Cup in Trondheim (NOR). Since the qualification he is also the leader of the RAW AIR ranking.

After Oslo and Lillehammer, everyone wonders who should beat Robert Johansson (NOR) at RAW AIR? But Stefan Kraft did not give up and took the lead in qualification in Trondheim and extended his lead on 15 points in the competition. However, it did not look good for the two leaders at the beginning: Kraft was seventh after the first round, Johansson only tenth. With 135 meters in the final Stefan Kraft took the lead and extended his lead against the Norwegian. The Austrian regained position after position and still managed to make a podium: "Great day, again on the podium. I was able to catch up a bit in the second round, but the first jump was also not bad. It will be exciting in Vikersund, it is now a three-way fight, because Kobayashi should not be underestimated, as he jumped today." Ryoyu Kobayashi (JPN) jumped up and away as earlier this season and is now second in the RAW AIR standings. With 141.5 meters, he prevented the victory of Andreas Stjernen (NOR) in its very last competition. Richard Freitag, Karl Geiger and Markus Eisenbichler (all GER, Fischer) took the places seven to nine.
