Anders Jacobsen achieved his goal and was able to return to the hill in August after he was recently sidelined due to a knee injury.

The Norwegian made his first jumps of the season this week on the Midtstubakken in Oslo. "I was jumping on two days and it worked very well", the former 4-Hills-Tournament winner said on "It feels really good to be back again, but I know I still have a lot of work to do. Now it's about making enough jumps to get the right feeling again."

The 29-year-old wants to be completely fit again for the upcoming winter, but he didn't set any particular goals for the 2014/15 season. "I want to prove to myself that I can come back after this injury."

With the two youngsters Phillip Sjoeen and Daniel-Andre Tande, who both showed some strong performances this summer, there will be more competition for the veteran in a fight for a spot on the Norwegian team for the World Cup and the World Championships in Falun. But Jacobsen considers this development positive: "It would be good for the team if these guys could continue jumping on this level also in winter. We need more than just Bardal at the top."
