The Upper Austrian injured herself on Saturday between the rounds by stumbling and, unimpressed by the pain, also showed a sovereign second round.

“Brutally awesome that I made such a cool jump with an exposed shinbone,” said the third place in the Junior World Championships, who had been jumping for weeks and who had already put eleventh place in the individual competition, a great test of her talent. The degree of injury only became clear to her when the material was checked. “I saw the bump right away and the blood came out.”

During the celebrations in the outdoor area, the limping Innviertlerin had to be supported and carried by her teammates. Chiara Kreuzer showed Mühlbacher great respect. “We made sure that we took care of her first, she has a hole in her shin. She really looked smart, so she saluted her performance even more,” says Chiara Kreuzer, who piggybacked through the Mühlbacher at the flower ceremony had worn an outlet. “She said to me that the landing hurt like hell, but she did it for the team. That’s what makes this competition. A goosebump moment – everyone does their best and not just for themselves,” explained the Salzburg native .

ÖSV head coach Harald Rodlauer was also impressed by the teenager’s callousness. “With the incident, it’s even more remarkable how she then knocked down the jump. It’s amazing what she brings to this World Cup, even in a team competition, how she deals with age, you can only do that hat off.”

Despite the injury, Rodlauer hopes that Mühlbacher can compete in the mixed competition on Sunday. “I think it’s not that tragic.” Clarification should bring initial investigations. With the nomination decision between Mühlbacher and Kreuzer, they will take as long as possible, so Rodlauer.
