67th Tournament is on!
Much of the German focus was on Karl Geiger, who is originally from Oberstdorf and was able to win his first competition in Engelberg just a few weeks ago. But also Richard Freitag had his say: “I’ll be there tomorrow”, he promised. He had missed the last competition before Christmas. Taking about missing: Andreas Wellinger stayed in the hotel, suffering from a minor cold. Head coach Werner Schuster assured this was merely a safety measure.
Tomorrow the Tournament also starts in means of the real sports. The qualification is scheduled for 4.30 pm, on Sunday the competiton follows. Afterwards, the jumpers will travel straight to Garmisch-Partenkirchen where the qualification for the New Year's Ski Jump is up on Monday.
