Kraft on top, Germany not
After showing the widest jump in both rounds, Kraft won with a comfortable lead on Robert Johansson, who is still the best in the overall ranking, though. Third place belonged to Ryoyu Kobayashi.
The German contestants, meanwhile, were not at their best. Andreas Wellingers 14th place was the best they could offer on this day. His athletes had been jumping like "robots" was what national coach Werner Schuster concluded afterwards.
Everyone gets a new chance today when the qualification for Trondheim is on. Also Richard Freitag who had been absent with a cold will be back then.
