Hill records and a double victory in Ruka

The second Ski Jumping World Cup of the season was marked by two new hill records and two winners on Sunday. The DSV team showed an improvement compared to the season opener in Wisła.

Saturday - Individual Jumping

The German team had to start the World Cup weekend in Ruka without equipment, which is why the qualification was postponed from Friday to Saturday morning. Anže Lanišek from Slovenia won both the qualification and the competition. With a hill record of 149 metres in the first round, he ended up 1.3 points ahead of Austria's Stefan Kraft. Piotr Żyła from Poland came in third.

After a disappointing start to the season from the German point of view, the DSV eagles showed better form. Karl Geiger was the best German in sixth place on Saturday. Andreas Wellinger in 14th, Markus Eisenbichler in 16th and Pius Paschke in 18th also finished in the top 20, while returnee Stefan Leyhe came in 21st after a strong first round.

Sunday - Individual Jumping

In the qualification on Sunday Halvor Egner Granerud from Norway improved the hill record again with 150.5 metres. Granerud also won the competition, but there was another winner in Stefan Kraft, who finished the competition with the same score. Naoki Nakamura from Japan was on the podium for the first time in his career in third place.

Andreas Wellinger was the best-placed German athlete on Sunday in seventh place. Pius Paschke in eighth and Markus Eisenbichler in ninth rounded off the very good German team result. Karl Geiger, like in the first competition in Wisła, missed the second round.
