Leader Halvor Egner Granerud won on Thursday with a jump of 137 m and 151.9 points ahead of Poland’s Dawid Kubacki (147.5 points/137.5 m). Eleven Austrians survived the qualification for the Dreikönigsjumping on Friday (4.30 p.m. / ORF 1), Michael Hayböck (5th) and Stefan Kraft (6th) were the best ÖSV eagles.
Granerud has a comfortable 23.3 points or the equivalent of almost 13 meters ahead of Kubacki in the overall tournament ranking. In front of 5,000 spectators in rainy conditions, he proved that the Paul-Ausserleitner-Schanze suits him. The 26-year-old still needs two solid jumps on Friday to become the first Norwegian to win the Tournament since Anders Jacobsen in 2006/07. For his Austrian trainer Alexander Stöckl it would also be the first triumph in the traditional hill spectacle.
Behind the Slovenian overall third Anze Lanisek and the Pole Kamil Stoch, Hayböck (136.0 m) and World Champion Kraft (134.5 m) ranked sixth in the overall standings, best Austrian, the best red-white-red jumpers. Clemens Aigner surprised with ninth place (131.0 m).
Manuel Fettner (14th), Philipp Aschenwald (16th), Daniel Tschofenig (20th), Jan Hörl (30th) and Clemens Leitner (47th) are also in Friday’s competition. From the national group of the ÖSV, which will start again at the ski flying event in Kulm (January 27-29), Maximilian Ortner (29), Francisco Mörth (48) and Markus Müller (50. ) made it into the top 50. Hannes Landerer and Maximilian Steiner failed.
