Austria’s Lisa Eder continues to write Nordic Combined history! After her victory in the younger girls’ category at the FIS Youth Cup in Trondheim in March, the 14-year-old has taken the victory in the first-ever Ladies’ Nordic Combined event in the Alpencup.

In temperatures of over 30°C, Eder finally beat second-places Sara Kramer (AUT) by 15 seconds. Local hero Alexandra Seifert took the bronze rank with a time behind of 44 seconds behind the winner, Jenny Nowak claimed the unlucky fourth position.
