It was a tight race for the win in this competition until the very end between Austria and Slovenia. Nika Prevc, Patrik Vitez, Ursa Bogataj, and Peter Prevc only scored 3.7 points less than the Austrians today with their four jumps. And also the team of Norway was not far behind. The Norwegians came in only 9.9 points behind the winners, it was a well-deserved third place for Thea Minyan Bjoerseth, Bendik Jakobsen Heggli, Silje Opseth, and Fredrik Villumstad.
One of the two surprises today was provided by the Swiss team with an almost sensational fourth place. A fantastic result for Gregor Deschwanden, Dominik Peter, and the two young athletes Sina Arnet and Emely Torazza.
The teams of Germany and the Czech Republic came in fifth and sixth, Romania surprised in seventh today. The team of Japan finished only ninth after yesterday’s winner Ren Nikaido (boots) was disqualified.
For the men, the Grand Prix continues next weekend in Hinzenbach, the women will compete again in the final event in Klingenthal in two weeks.
