Ski Pricer Markus Eisenbichler has aroused with a strong qualification quiet hopes for the Olympic decision from the Großschanze on Saturday. The former world champion landed with a flight to 129.0 m in six rank and was therefore the best of the most recently disappointing DSV Adler. Hope Karl Geiger came on his 29th birthday with 128.0 m on the twelfth place.
“I’m on the right track, it’s more fun again,” said Eisenbichler. Teammollege Geiger was less satisfied. “It’s very tough games for me so far. I did not think it’s so hard to go from my hand because I never had such problems all year round. I have to start again from the beginning and of pretty far down,” said the Oberstdorfer.
The winner of the qualification was the Norwegian Marius Lindvik with 135.0 m in front of his teammate Halvor Egner Granerud and Routinier Peter Prevc from Slovenia. Normal Schanzen Olympic champion Ryoyu Kobayashi from Japan had to sit down with rank nine.
Constantin Schmid (Oberaudorf) followed in the 19th place. Pius Paschke (Kieferfelden), who had been missing in the individual of the normal skill, made it as 30. also easily under the best 50 and is thus on Saturday (19.00 clock oz / 12.00 o’clock mez).
“We did a step forward today. It’s not optimal yet, but it was fine. The guys slowly get a feeling for the ski jump,” said Bundestrainer Stefan Horngacher.
