Like the day before in Sapporo, the woman from Vorarlberg finished third and thus already has her tenth place on the podium. On Sunday she was only beaten by the Norwegian Silje Opseth and the second-placed Slovenian Ema Kllimec. Since her first pursuer Katharina Althaus landed directly behind her, Pinkelnig extended the lead to 159 points.

“This is totally crazy”

The four-time season winner and Silvester Tour winner had just 6.4 points fewer than Opseth in the second Sapporo competition. It was already the sixth podium place en suite for Pinkelnig. “Another podium is unbelievable, ten podiums in the season, that’s completely crazy,” said Pinkelnig. “The wind conditions were different and it was very early in the morning for us too. There are still things that can be improved, but I’m just enjoying it, I’m on a wave at the moment where I can almost do whatever I want and it works.” , gushed out of Pissingly. She thanked the entire team for the good set-up.

Head coach Harald Rodlauer was also happy. “Third place again, strong performance again, tenth podium place after 11 World Cup competitions, impressive series continued: one can only congratulate the ease with which she approaches the matter.”

The second best Austrian on Sunday was Chiara Kreuzer in eleventh place. Sara Marita Kramer didn’t get any points because the defending World Cup champion was disqualified for breaking a suit rule. Kramer actually ended up in eighth place in the first round, but was then disqualified. “It’s a shame, it was a technically very clean jump,” said Rodlauer.

The ski jumpers are now relocating within Japan to Zao, where three competitions will take place next weekend. In addition to two individuals, the “Super Team” competition will be held for the first time: instead of four, only two athletes per nation will be at the start. This should also give smaller nations the chance for further competition. The men have their first Superteam event in Lake Placid in mid-February.
