Thomas Morgenstern remains unbeatable
After the hat trick in Poland, Thomas Morgenstern (AUT) also won in Hinterzarten (GER), where the FIS Grand Prix in Ski Jumping continued last weekend. It was his fourth victory in the fourth competition. Counting the Austrian victories in the two team competitions, it was his sixth win in the sixth competition. With his winning streak, Morgenstern is the undisputed leader in the season's Ski Jumping Grand Prix ranking with 400 points. Kamil Stoch of Poland ranks second (229 points).
In Saturday's team event, Austria was challenged by Poland who led after the first round, just to lose out to today's dominating Ski Jumping nation in the final results. In Sunday's individual competition, Morgenstern laid the foundation for his victory already in the first round. His jump of 108.5 m was the longest of the weekend in Hinterzarten. In the final round, Morgenstern landed a flight of 104.5 m, again the longest jump of the round.
"It was not an easy competition for me today. The others showed long jumps. I want to congratulate the organizers to the 30th anniversary of summer jumping in Hinterzarten, but I won't be competing here for the 40th," said the winner.
The second place went to Kamil Stoch, who is having a great summer so far as he achieved already his third podium result. "This was a competition at the highest level. I will give the flowers to my wife, because it's our first wedding anniversary today," told Stoch.
Germany's Richard Freitag finished third, his first ever top three result at this level. "It was a great feeling to compete here and stand on the podium. I'm excited and it's a new experience. For me, it can go on like that," said Freitag.
The FIS Grand Prix will continue on Thursday with the qualification for Friday's competition in Courchevel (FRA), followed by Einsiedeln (SUI) at the weekend.
