The Salzburger sailed on Friday in front of 7,800 fans on 225.5 and 219 m and thus confirmed second place after the first round. The Slovenian Timi Zajc is in the lead, after 228.5 m with 227 meters, 12.3 points ahead of Kraft. In third place is the Norwegian Johann Andre Forfang (+17.1).

With Michael Hayböck (217/210.5 m) and Jan Hörl (201.5/214.5) in eighth and tenth place, two more ÖSV athletes are in the top ten. Zajc confirmed his good form, the Slovenian was only six meters below the eight-year-old hill record set by his compatriot Peter Prevc in the morning training with 238.0 m.

“I put everything on one card”

As 35th among 47 athletes who competed, Manuel Fettner did not make it to the next rounds in the first round; only the top 30 progressed. The Tyrolean botched the competition jump and only managed 158 m. “I put everything on one card. After the table, I did something that I shouldn’t have done,” said the 38-year-old in an ORF interview.

Last year’s Kulm World Cup winner Halvor Egner Granerud was also eliminated after just one flight. The Norwegian was one of three athletes who were disqualified after the suit measurement.
