The second competition of the ladies’ OPA season in Bischofsgrün had the German team sweeping ranks one till five. Jenny Nowak claimed a dominant victory, winning the ski jumping part with 107.4 points and the roller-ski race by 32.2 seconds.

FIS Youth Cup leader Emilia Görlich added a second position to her great start into the season. After the 8th place in the jumping event and a time behind of 0:48 seconds, she set the fastest skiing time of 9:40.5 for the 3 km, which meant the silver rank on the final podium. Teammate Anna Jäkle reached the finish line 41.4 seconds after Nowak and Sophia Maurus and Marie Nähring completed a great German team result on ranks four and five, finishing +41.8 and +1:07.1 seconds after Nowak.

The first non-German in the result list was Austria’s Lisa Hirner on rank six. The runner-up of the jumping part (106.2 p.) had only the 15th best skiing time and reached the finish one minute and 22 seconds after the winner.
