    4-Hills-Tornament: Dawid Kubacki on the podium in Bischofshofen

    Halvor Egner Granerud won the 71st edition of the Four Hills Tournament. The Norwegian sealed his triumph with a win in the competition in Bischofshofen. Dawid Kubacki finished third on Friday and was only second to Granerud in the overall TCS ranking.

    In the first round, Pawel Wasek was the first of the Polish team to jump. He was up against Austrian Jan Hoerl, who jumped well with 135.5 metres. With only 123.5 m he had to say goodbye to the competition in Bischofshofen.

    A much better performance was shown by Piotr Zyla, who landed at 133.5 m despite strong gusts of wind at his back and beat Domen Prevc. On the other hand, Stefan Hula (125 m) was no match for Ryoy Kobayashi. The Japanese showed his class with 134.5 metres. The bomb went off a moment later with Stefan Kraft – 141 metres meant a landing outside the hill size.

    Three Poles were promoted after the second round – Piotr Zyla was twelfth, Kamil Stoch sixth, and Dawid Kubacki was second only to Anze Lanisek and Halvor Egner Granerud.

    Zyla fought to the end for the distance and made a telemark on the green line – 136 metres – giving him an identical point score to the momentary leader Clemens Aigner. In Bischofshofen he ultimately finished tenth.

    One and a half metres closer to his Polish teammate landed Kamil Stoch. Shortly afterwards, the fight for the podium in Bischofshofen began. Stefan Kraft, who was not helped by the wind with only 127.5 metres, failed his attempt. Dawid Kubacki jumped much further after the Austrian. It was a beautiful flight of the Pole! 140 m and a clear lead! Anze Lanisek landed one meter closer but was only 1.8 points ahead of our world champion.

    Halvor Egner Granerud sealed his triumph of the Four Hills Tournament with a jump from a reduced run-in. It was 143.5 metres!
