Austria’s Daniela Iraschko won the first CoC in Ljubno ahead of Germany’s Ulrike Grässler and Norway’s Anette Sagen.
Grässler twice jumped on 87.0 meters, the longest distance of that competition. But due to higher judges points Iraschko (85.0 and 84.5 m) was able to defeat her anyhow. Thus it was a close result, as only 1.5 points were between them. Jumping on 85.0 and 82.5 meters, Sagen, best in yesterday’s official training, placed third.
Eva Logar was the best Slovenian on the fourth rank (80.5 and 81.5 m), ahead of Elena Runggaldier (ITA, 79.5 and 80.0 m). Melanie Faisst (GER, 79.0 and 80.0 m) took the sixth rank.
In the Continental Cup’s overall standings Iraschko extended her lead and has now 984 points. On the second rank is Sagen (760 points), ahead of Grässler (727 points).
