Chiara Kreuzer, Julia Mühlbacher, Jacqueline Seifriedsberger and Eva Pinkelnig took the overall second place on the ÖSV podium in these title fights after Pinkelnig won individual silver. Gold went to Germany with a lead of 12.7 points, with individual world champion Katharina Althaus winning again. Silver took 2.5 points behind ÖSV Norway.

In a close fight for medals, the ÖSV team was in the medal ranks in each of the eight rounds, even taking the lead after Mühlbacher’s first jump. The only 18-year-old eleventh in the individual competition acted in attempts of 93.0 and 96.5 m as well as clean landings and thus helped to keep the host team Slovenia (4th) and Japan (5th) at a distance. In the case of the Japanese women, record-breaking World Cup winner Sara Takanashi had to pass after a training crash on Friday.
