Wellinger in Ruka on the podium
Jernej Damjan took the win in Kuusamo and the second one of his career. The 34-year-old finished ahead of Johann Andre Forfang and Andreas Wellinger. By coming in third place, Wellinger reached the podium for the first time this season.
Already on Saturday Werner Schuster’s team showed that they felt comfortable in Kuusamo. Markus Eisenbichler, Pius Paschke, Andreas Wellinger and Richard Freitag were only beaten by Norway. Japan finished third.
The Austrian team and Stefan Kraft have to live with fourth place this time, even in spite of an impressive jump of 147.5 m and a new hill record by Kraft.
