Du haut niveau
Pour ce dernier rendez-vous avant la neige, les meilleures spécialistes mondiales se sont affrontées sur le grand tremplin de Klingenthal (ALL), pour le plus grand bonheur de Marita Kramer.
Impressionnante l'Autrichienne se pose à 128m en première manche avant de s'envoler à 141.5m sur son second saut. Une performance qui lui permet de s'imposer avec plus de 17 points d'avance sur la gagnante du Grand Prix, la Slovène Ursa Bogataj.
Sara Takanashi, toujours placé sur les podiums, vient compléter ce Top 3 au goût de coupe du monde.
Les Françaises se classent 21e avec Julia Clair et 33e avec Joséphine Pagnier.
Marita Kramer (AUT):
"When you have a great jump you realize it immediately after the take-off and that's the best feeling. In winter I want to continue jumping like this, I will keep working hard and I hope it will pay off.
My main goal is to win an Olympic medal. I don't know if it happens China this winter or later, I want to work towards that goal step by step and I think I'm on a pretty good way."
Ursa Bogataj (SLO):
"I'm very happy that I could win the overall title, I didn't expect this at all. I have just returned from an injury and I thought that achieving that would be impossible for me, but it happened.
I would be happy if I could also win in winter, but I know that there are many competitors who also have big goals. I just want to enjoy jumping in winter as well and I hope I can remain in such good shape."
Sara Takanashi (JPN):
"The level of women's Ski Jumping is getting higher, so I have to keep up with that pace. Usually it's difficult for me to jump on this hill, but this time I could really adjust to it and I'm glad that I was able to jump well here today.
Of course, the Olympics are my main goal next winter. I will also give my best in all the competitions before it but I will also use them to improve my performance for the Olympic Games."
