Stefan Kraft returns with an impressive flight show and wins the last qualification of this year's Four Hills Tournament in Bischofshofen. Behind him the Japanese Daiki Ito finishes second and the Pole Kamil Stoch on third.
The battle for the golden eagle remains exciting. In the last qualification before the grand final, overall leader Dawid Kubacki as well as the pursuers Marius Lindvik, Karl Geiger and Ryoyu Kobayashi did not show their best performance and stayed in sixth (Kobayashi), ninth (Lindvik), thirteen (Kubacki) and sixteen (Geiger) place.
In tomorrow's duels Kubacki will have to face Cene Prevc from Slovenia and Marius Lindvik will have to prevail against his team mate Sondre Wrestling. Karl Geiger keeps his chances of winning the tournament by beating Simon Ammann and Ryoyu Kobayashi jumps against Stefan Huber. Only just under nine points, so about five meters lie between Kubacki and Lindvik before the last jump, it remains more than exciting for the final! At 5. 15 pm the first evaluation round starts in Bischofshofen.

At the first and only summer Grand-Prix this year, the Polish jumpers were able to take advantage of their home crowd at the Adam-Malysz-Hill in Wisla. On both days Dawid Kubacki won.
The preparations for the winter are on and the ski jumpers are already training again on the hills - but it still takes time until the official World Cup start at the end of November. We want to use the time to take a look at the hidden talents of the jumpers. What do the athletes actually do besides competitive sports? Which star is also responsible for the Olympic victory of another athlete? And who almost made the night clubs insecure? Here are three, more or less “secret" talents of the ski jumping stars.
