Last weekend, the World Cup in ski jumping took place in Willingen. But the weather did not make it easy for the athletes and spectators. However, the Norwegian Halvor Egner Granerud was particularly impressive, who didn't let himself get rattled even by the adverse conditions and set another milestone in his career with his next victory.
Friday - Mixed Team Competition
The start of the ski jumping weekend in Willingen was made by the mixed team competition. However, this start did not turn out well due to the weather conditions. Continuous rain and strong gusts of wind led to the cancellation after the first round. It was too dangerous. The victory went to the quartet from Norway consisting of Silje Opseth, Anna Odine Stroem, Marius Lindvik and Halvor Egner Granerud. The team from Austria (Chiara Kreuzer, Jan Hörl, Eva Pinkelnig and Stefan Kraft) came in second and Selina Freitag, Karl Geiger, Katharina Althaus and Andreas Wellinger jumped into third place for Germany.
