Norway's Eirin Maria Kvandal is still in outstanding form at the RAW AIR in Norway. After her success on Sunday at the Holmenkollen in Oslo, the 22-year-old also came out on top in Trondheim on Tuesday.
Kvandal won on the new HS 105 meter hill ahead of Eva Pinkelnig from Austria and Nika Kriznar from Slovenia.
Fourth place went to the Canadian Alexandria Loutitt.

"I'm really overwhelmed, it's just working great at the moment," said a delighted Kvandal, who had already won the qualification for the competition in the morning.
"I'm really looking forward to the competition on the big hill tomorrow. I've been looking forward to this competition all winter, it's the highlight for me," said Kvandal.
The competitions are the dress rehearsals for the 2025 Nordic World Ski Championships for women and men.

With her victory, Kvandal was also able to extend her lead in the overall RAW AIR rankings. The 22-year-old has collected 970.3 points so far, Eva Pinkelnig has 938.3 points to her name and third-placed Nika Prevc follows in third place with 920.6 points.

Nika Prevc (in fifth place today) continues to lead the overall World Cup with 1270 points ahead of Eva Pinkelnig, who came second today.
For Pinkelnig, second place was her 11th podium finish of the winter. "This hill is totally casual and successful, you can jump really far here and you need strength in your legs. In the competition on the large hill tomorrow I have to stay calm and then I want to fly as far as possible," said Pinkelnig after her success.
Jacqueline Seifriedsberger (AUT) finished 6th, directly behind her Selina Freitag was the best German in 7th place.
Josephine Pagnier (FRA) and Sara Takanashi finished 8th and 9th.

For the women, the second competition in Trondheim is still on the program tomorrow, jumping from the HS 138 meter large hill, the competition starts at 18:15.
