Ski Flying World Championships: Andreas Wellinger wins silver at the World Championships on Kulm

Andreas Wellinger still secures a medal at the Kulm. A fourth round of the World Aviation Championships is canceled because it is too dark and there is no floodlight.

Ski jumper Andreas Wellinger won a medal at the Ski Flying World Championships at the Kulm in Bad Mitterndorf. The 28-year-old Bavarian flew 229 meters in the third and final round and thus improved from fourth place to silver.

Austria’s top favorite Stefan Kraft won the World Cup title. Timi Zajc from Slovenia fell from first place to third place and took bronze.

Start postponed several times

After the first two flights on Friday, Wellinger was also behind the Norwegian Johann Andre Forfang, but clearly overtook him with his strong flight. Wellinger’s teammates Stephan Leyhe (10th), Karl Geiger (19th) and Pius Paschke (23rd) celebrated directly in the run-out with the Olympic champion, who won individual precious metal at a flying world championship for the first time. A fourth round did not take place due to the weather. The start had been postponed several times because of the wind. Then it got too dark. There is no floodlight.

Team flying is on the program on Sunday. Germany wants to win another medal, but is an outsider against the strong Slovenes, hosts Austria and Norway.
