FIS Youth Cup Trondheim concludes with second big day
After the successful premiere on Wednesday, the first-ever winter FIS Youth Cup for boys and girls concluded with a big second competition day on Thursday. Not only were the athletes able to soak up the World Cup air and be honoured by the World Cup athletes in a joint prize giving ceremony, they also performed with an audience of about 2000 school children who were at Trondheim’s Granaasen venue for a big activity day on snow.
So next to testing out a mini jumping hill or sliding down the smaller hill next to the K60, watching the Youth Cup athletes was a big happening and lead to a lot of cheering and a beautiful atmosphere for the junior athletes. Thriving on this great backdrop, the boys and girls rewarded the spectators with long jumps and exciting races.
In the end, the winners were: Andreas Skoglund from Norway in the Boys 01-02 class, ahead of teammates Benjamin Østvold and Sebastian Østvold. Finland’s Wille Karhumaa captures his second win of the weekend in the boys 00 category, ahead of Andreas Ilves from Estonia and Ludvik Braathen from Norway.
Final Results Boys
The wins in the ladies’ categories went to Austria’s Lisa Eder and Timna Moser again, as on the previous day. Eder took the victory in the girls 00-01-02 age group, beating Norway’s Ida Marie Hagen and Karoline Bjerke Skatvedt and Timna Moser continued her winning spree from the summer in the age group 98-99 and left the ranks two and three to Norwegians Tonje Bakke and Hanna Midtsundstad.
