Dawid Kubacki is the new winner of the 68th Four Hills Tournament. The man from Poland was able to beat Marius Lindvik from Norway and Karl Geiger from Germany in an exciting tour final.
The most exciting tour in years had everything you could wish for in the finale. With fantastic weather and 15,000 spectators, the three favourites in particular delivered an exciting flight show. Already in the first run Kubacki, who was also ahead in the overall standings before the final, prevailed against the competition, and nothing changed in the final. On the day's podium Karl Geiger from Germany finished second ahead of the Norwegian Marius Lindvik in third place. In the overall standings, the 21-year-old hobby DJ from Norway took second place ahead of Karl Geiger.
With his win, Kubacki is ranking third on the pole position behind Adam Malysz and Kamil Stoch. Last year's winner Ryoyu Kobayashi finishes fourth in the overall standings.
