Magdalena Schnurr won today’s Continental Cup competition in Ljubno, Anette Sagen and Ulrike Grässler finish second and third.
German Magdalena Schnurr knew best of all how to prepare skis for today’s rainy conditions as she had the highest inrun speed in both competition rounds. She used it to set two jumps to 83,0 m and 84,0 m, which was enough for her to win ahead of Anette Sagen (NOR) and Ulrike Grässler (GER).
After the first round Sagen and Schnurr were together on the first position with equal points, Grässler was just one point behind. Daniela Iraschko (AUT) and Nata de Leeuw (CAN) on the 4th and 5th rank had both a good initial position but were not able to use it in the second round. Best starter for the hosting nation Slovenia was Maja Vtic who became 6th.
In the overall standings Grässler is now in the lead, Sagen is on the second place. Lindsey Van (USA) and Anna Häfele (GER), who did both not compete in the last two competitions slip back to positions three and four.
