German Ski Jumpers Are Still Waiting For First Win Of The Season
The ski jumpers from Germany continued to wait for their first win of the season. The Bavarian Olympic champion, on the other hand, is extremely happy.
Karl Geiger put his shoulders hanging and waved dissatisfied to the electronic camera: The German ski jumpers around the hope of Hope from Oberstdorf collected a damper on the last World Cup weekend before the four-hill trip.
Geiger just took 22nd location in the snowy mountain landscape of Inselberg on Saturday.
His buddy Markus Eisenbichler even landed in 27th location in the success of the Slovenian Anne Anise. As the very best German better, Andreas Bellinger flew to sixth location in a climatic competitor with many passionate fans on the densely occupied grandstands.
It simply stunk that I didn’t get the dive, said Geiger to his frustration.
I recognize that it’s really not that far away, but I can’t get it on the ski leaping table.
With a view to the upcoming tasks, the leaping veteran said: Often it is better, often worse. You just can’t come down.
Geiger had recently shown rising kind.
Last weekend he had given the German team in Titisee-Neustadt the first and so far only podium in the winter.
This time it was just enough for jumps to 124 and 129.5 meters.
Even prior to the last competitors before Christmas this Sunday (12.30 p.m./ ARD and Eurosport) on the GroßtitliSchanze, it is clear: Unlike last year, the Algae does not begin as a leading favorite at the trip of the trip on December 29.
Eisenbichler on a type search
Up until now, it has actually been much worse than with Geiger this winter for its buddy Eisenbichler.
The triple world champ of 2019 does not come close to his leading kind.
The fact that nine Eisenbichler’s best seasonal results so far demonstrates how far the previous success jumper is eliminated from its real efficiency.
On Saturday he jumped 121 and 129.5 meters.
Naturally I’m not satisfied, however I need to take it as it is, said Eisenbichler.
With a view to the tour of the tour, he included: I take a look at Oberstdorf relaxed. This is a ski jump that I like. I can go there in the biggest back shape and jump fairly well and can do top 10 positions there.
Bellinger exceptionally pleased
Bellinger more than happy about a place in the top 10 on Saturday.
The 2018 Olympic champion made his best season result so far.
I’m very pleased. It went a great deal of big step today, said the 27-year-old after his dives to 137 and 139 meters.
The first dive was excellent, the second was actually cool again. Ski jumping must feel like this!
