After the Four Hills Tournament the normal Ski Jumping World Cup continued on this weekend. Two competitions from the normal hill were held in Val di Fiemme, Italy. On both days it was the German Karl Geiger, who was happy about the victory in the end and thus also took the yellow jersey as overall World Cup leader.
On Saturday, only five days after the Four Hills Tournament, the German team in particular presented itself very strong. Constantin Schmid and Pius Paschke (fifth and eighth place) were happy about their best World Cup result. Grand Slam winner Kamil Stoch only just missed the podium on both days of competition and finished fourth.
A black day was caught on Saturday by the Norwegian Marius Lindvik, who came second in the Four Hills Tournament. He was disqualified because of his suit on Saturday. The following day the 21-year-old was happy about sixth place, with the Slovenian Peter Prevc equal on points.
Next weekend, the next home World Cup is scheduled for the German jumpers with the competition in Tittisee-Neustadt.go back

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.

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.
