Planica: Third place in the overall World Cup for Wellinger

The 2023/24 season came to an end with the ski flying event in Planica. The DSV eagles secured third place overall in the Nations Cup.

Compared to the previous weekend, the German team traveled to the season finale with Luca Roth and Felix Hofmann instead of Philipp Raimund and Constantin Schmid. Karl Geiger, Stephan Leyhe, Pius Paschke and Andreas Wellinger therefore remained in the line-up. 

All six jumpers qualified for the first individual competition on Friday. 

Friday - Individual Flying 

The best German in the first individual competition on Friday was Pius Paschke, who landed in tenth place and made up seven places compared to the first round. Karl Geiger also improved in the final round and finished in 13th place, while Andreas Wellinger came 20th. Stephan Leyhe, Luca Roth and Felix Hoffmann were unable to qualify for the second round and finished in 31st, 34th and 39th place respectively. 

Peter Prevc from Slovenia, who had already announced the end of his career after the World Cup in Planica, celebrated an emotional victory.

Sunday - Individual Flying 

The last World Cup of the 2023/24 season took place on Sunday. The top 30 in the overall World Cup ranking were permitted to compete. From a German perspective, this meant Pius Paschke, Andreas Wellinger, Karl Geiger and Stephan Leyhe. 

The best result was again achieved by Pius Paschke, who finished 13th ahead of Andreas Wellinger (14th place). Karl Geiger and Stephan Leyhe finished 22nd and 27th respectively. 

The victory went to Austria's Daniel Huber, who dominated the ski flying on Sunday and was therefore also able to secure the small crystal globe for the overall winner of the Ski Flying World Cup. 

To the official final result 

Andreas Wellinger finished third in the overall World Cup, crowning a strong season with the best World Cup result of his career. Wellinger was able to compete in every competition and always finished among the top 30 jumpers.
