A new winner at the Bergisel

 

21-year-old Norwegian Marius Lindvik turned the Ski Jumping world upside-down with his second win three days. On Saturday, Lindvik won in an outstanding manner on the Bergisel in Innsbruck (AUT) ahead of Poland's Dawid Kubacki and Daniel Andre Tande (NOR).

 

The 20 000 fans saw a true Ski Jumping nail-biter on the Bergisel-hill. In the end, the new star from Norway set the second highlight in just three days with his jumps of 133 m and 120.5 m (253.3 points).

 

Marius Lindvik said after the competition: "I really found my shape here during the 4-Hills-Tournament and I hope I can continue this way in Bischofshofen. It's fun to look at the overall ranking now, but it's a large gap between me and Dawid Kubacki. I try not to think that much about the overall title, but the chance is there now. I've never jumped in Bischofshofen before, that will be fun."

 

After his two third places in the first two competitions, Dawid Kubacki finished second today. With this result, he also took the lead in the overall ranking of the 4-Hills-Tournament as the two top favorites Ryoyu Kobayashi of Japan and Karl Geiger of Germany lost many points in difficult conditions in the first round.

 

Kubacki now leads the overall ranking with 830.7 points, followed by Marius Lindvik (9.1 points behind) and Karl Geiger (13.3 points behind Kubacki). Theoretically, Ryoyu Kobayashi also still has a chance to claim the title in the final event on Monday, he is currently 13.7 points behind Kubacki. It will be an extremely exciting final in Bischofshofen.

 

Karl Geiger said: "It was a difficult competition and my jumps were also not on the highest level, which makes it tough. The second jump was better and I could make up for a few points. It just didn't go well for me here, it was not my best day. Now I'm a few points behind, but when I can show two good jumps in Bischofshofen, then I'm satisfied."
