Oslo: Hendrickson best in official training


Sara Hendrickson performed best in the official training in Oslo, where tomorrow a Ladies World Cup will be held for the first time ever on a large hill.

The final World Cup of this winter will be held tomorrow – and it’s time for a premiere. For the first time ever a Ladies World Cup will be held on a large hill. The famous Holmenkollen in Oslo, known as the cradle of skijumping, was chosen for this event, that will only be attended by the best 30 jumpers of this winter. An official training was held already today.

The jumpers needed some time to get used to that large hill, so most jumps in the first training round were rather short, but in the second and third round the performance got better and better.

Best in the first round was Sara Takanashi with a jump of 118.5 meters, Sarah Hendrickson followed on the second position with 113.5 meters. The Italians Evelyn Insam and Elena Runggaldier both jumped 111.0 meters and so followed behind them.

In the second training round Hendrickson made a strong jump of 119.5 meters, while Takanashi jumped 116.5 meters. Thisr behind them came this time Katja Pozun with an 113.5 meter jump.

In the third round Hendrickson was jumped 120.0 meters and so was the only jumper today who made it to the K-Point. Runggaldier with 117.0 meters and Jacqueline Seifriedsberger with 116.5 meters followed behind.
