Team Germany on high altitude flight in Lathi!
On Friday the first individual jumping of the weekend took place in Finnish Lathi, which Stefan Kraft won. With two good jumps at 129. 5 meters, he finally got 5 points more than the second placed Karl Geiger. The young Norwegian Daniel Ander Tande also showed a great performance and jumped to 3rd place. And it should get even more exciting. The team competition on Saturday was a nerve-racking spectacle, which was only decided at the last jump. To Stefan Horngacher's delight, the German team won with an extremely narrow lead of 2. 3 points over Slovenia and Austria. Everything remained open until the final jump, but Karl Geiger, Pius Pachke, Stefan Leyhe and Constantin Schmid showed great jumps and won the competition at the last moment. The World Cup weekend came to a crowning conclusion on Sunday, when Karl Geiger jumped to 1st place in the second run with an outstanding jump, thus finishing ahead of Stefan Kraft (2nd place) and Michael Hayböck (3rd place). A special victory in the 1000th Ski Jumping World Cup. Also Constantin Schmid and Stephan Leyhe confirmed their form with the ranks 4 and 5 and Markus Eisenbichler and Pius Paschke ensured a strong result for the DSV Eagles with the ranks 17 and 19! Due to Geiger's victory, the old gap in the overall World Cup has been restored and it remains to be seen who will be ahead in the end.
