Ryoyu Kobayashi flew after his Grand Slam in the four-hills-tournament and again in the history books of ski jumping, in the absence of müller, Markus Eisenbichler saved Stephan Leyhe the DSV-eagles in the Italian Val di Fiemme, the balance sheet: At the sixth world Cup victory Kobayashi in series, with the “Air Nippon” the world’s best brand, set, was of the tour, the third Leyhe as the Fifth is by far the best German.
“I’m very pleased,” said Leyhe, the feet of the pedestal were missing, in the ZDF: “The first jump I have not been successful, the second was better. It is to build and stay naughty.“ National coach Werner Schuster said: “A fifth place is for Stephan, this is a good result, he needs this for his confidence.” And about his lack of a front man, Schuster said slightly wistfully: “Eisenbichler would be able to recover Kobayashi, perhaps today.” The tour, the second from the victory village, but it had been on Friday in the qualification disqualified, can only intervene on Sunday in the second single-jump again. But also for “Eisei” in the best shape of Kobayashi would have been to beat on Saturday very difficult.
With 135,0 meters, as well as in the case of short start-up set hill record of EUR 136.0 m (315,0 points) put the Japanese on the big world Cup ski jump of 2013, the scores from the Polish Dawid Kubacki (288,5) and Kamil Stoch (282,9), and underscore its current exceptional status, even if this time he had after his second jump at the outlet of unfamiliar problems and with only one Ski through the snow, hopped.
Six world Cup victories in a row, were succeeded, before Kobayashi, the Finn Janne Ahonen (2004/05) and Matti Hautamäki (2005), as well as the Austrians Thomas Morgenstern (2007) and Gregor schlierenzauer (2009). With his ninth victory in this Winter, Kobayashi also made a further step in the direction of the record mark of the Slovenes Peter Prevc, who won in the 2015/16 season 15 times. Behind the tour, the third Leyhe David Siegel (Baiersbronn) was surprising as the 14. the second best German, it was his second-best career placement. Richard Freitag (Aue), 2013 in Val di Fiemme, world Vice-champion with the DSV-Team, came in 17th and said: “It goes slowly forward.” Karl Geiger (Oberstdorf) was ranked 19.
Olympic winner Andreas Wellinger (Ruhpolding) was ranked 26, and is still in a crisis. “I’m trying to concentrate on my jumps, the work is sometimes better, sometimes worse. It is tough,“ said Wellinger, which is still not the Norm for the world Cup in Seefeld (19. February to 3. March) has been met. On Sunday (17.00 imZDF and Eurosport) will take place in Val di Fiemme another single jump.
