Oberwiesenthal: Iraschko wins on Saturday


Daniela Iraschko wins ahead of Ema Klinec and Coline Mattel. Takanashi winner of German Summer Tour.

After heavy rain and changing winds yesterday, the weather in Oberwiesenthal was fine again today. There was sunshine and warm temperatures – perfect conditions for a nice summer competition. The wind was a little bit uneven again, but not as much as yesterday and so in general the conditions were more or less fair today.

With jumps on 104.0 and 97.5 meters Austrian World Champion Daniela Iraschko won this competition. “It is just nice to jump, when the weather is like this. It’s simply more fun. This victory is a good motivation for the next Continental Cups in Trondheim.” she said.

Second came Slovenia’s Ema Klinec (101.5 and 95.0 m). For the thirteen year old it is her best career result so far. “I don’t know how I feel now. It is just amazing, like I was living in a dream. For sure I hope to win a competition once, but I know that I have enough time for this.” she said to Ladies-Skijumping.com. Concerning today’s conditions she added: “I had good wind in the first round, but at the second jump there was no wind there at all.”

Third came France’s Coline Mattel with a pair of jumps on 98.0 and 95.0 meters. “I made it to the podium today, but it was a better feeling yesterday, because the whole team did fine. I also did not jump perfect today”, she said to Ladies-Skijumping.com.

Fourth rank took Japan’s Sara Takanashi (92.0 and 97.0 m), ahead of yesterday’s winner Jacqueline Seifriedsberger (AUT, 92.0 and 95.0 m). Sixth came Japan’s Yoshiko Kasai (97.0 and 89.0 m). It is nice to note that yesterday’s second, France’s Lea Lemare, again jumped well today and came seventh (93.0 and 90.0 m). The jinx of this competition was Germany’s Juliane Seyfarth. She was still fifth after the first round (93.0 m), but fell back to rank 22. after jumping only 75.0 meters in the second.
