EYOWF: Welde winner in Liberec
David Welde (GER) won the nordic combined competition at the tenth European Youth Olympic Winter Festival for athletes born in 1994/95. He was followed by Finland's Jane Peltola (+44.2 sec.) and Norwegian Kristoffer Mads Waaler (+55.3 sec.).
Weldes consistent performance - fourth on the hill, second in the race - earned him this victory. The jumping portion was clearly won by Austrian Markus Gruber, he was 42 seconds ahead of Ilkka Herola (FIN). The fastest in the track was another Austrian, Paul Gerstgrasser. He moved up from 17th to fifth in a very difficult course and under difficult conditions.
