Eisenbichler best German in Oberstdorf

Markus Eisenbichler has shown the best German performance during the long ski flying weekend of Oberstdorf.

The young Bavarian landed on third rank on Friday with Timi Zajc from Slovenia surprisingly winning the first world cup ski flying event he ever competed in, right in front of Dawid Kubacki from Poland. On Saturday, Eisenbichler was on the podium again. This time – and it must have felt like a 4 hills déjà vu – he landed 0,5 points behind Ryoyu Kobayashi, with Stefan Kraft completing the podium.

The trend for Eisenbichler seemed to point to the top, thus, but on Sunday he was too tired to take on the fight for his first world cup win. He ended on 10th position with Kamil Stoch frenetiqually celebrating his first win of the season in front of birthday boy Evgeniy Klimov from Russia and Dawid Kubacki.
