Kraft en leader
Classé troisième vendredi, le génial Stefan Kraft boucle son week-end en Roumanie en décrochant une 20e victoire en carrière sur le petit tremplin, HS 97, de Rasnov.
Douzième podium consécutif à la clé, le treizième depuis le début de saison pour le N°1 mondial qui tient une forme assez incroyable.
Son dauphin Karl Geiger continue également sur sa lancée avec un 2e rang au lendemain d'une victoire.
La nouveauté du jour arrive d'Allemagne avec la troisième place de l'espoir Constantin Schmid qui grimpe sur son premier podium en carrière.
Stefan Kraft (AUT):
"It was a very cool competition again today, I could further improve my performance compared to yesterday.
We analyzed yesterday's jumps and it was always close at the take-off. Before the second jump I knew that Karl was in the lead and I was a bit nervous and felt the pressure because the two of us are fighting for the overall World Cup lead.
I had to risk a lot in order to come in ahead of him and it's amazing that it worked out so well for me today."
Karl Geiger (GER):
"I'm very satisfied with the second place today. Both jumps were good and it was a lot of fun.
I can jump well on flying hills and on such smaller hills, maybe it's a bit easier for me on a normal hill because I'm very strong at the take-off.
Of course it's annoying that I wasn't really lucky when it comes to the wind conditions on the last three weekends, but the jumps were good."
Constantin Schmid (GER):
" I didn't expect to finish on the podium today. I thought that I would be able to finish in the Top 10 on the normal hill here.
It was a really good day for me and of course I'll try to follow up on this, but if it doesn't work, it's also not a problem. I didn't jump that well in Lahti in the past so maybe I can do better there this year."
