Ski jumper Sara Marita Kramer has not yet given up in the fight for the overall World Cup. The 19-year-old won the first competition in Nizhny Tagil in Russia on Saturday and celebrated her fourth win of the season. The new overall leader before the last three individual competitions this winter is the Japanese Sara Takanashi, who finished second eight points behind Kramer. The Slovenian Nika Kriznar had to give up the yellow jersey despite third place.
The gap between Takanashi and Kriznar is small at 15 points. Kramer is 126 points behind the leader. At halftime, the ÖSV headed for the first double victory in a year. But with increasing snowfall and wind, only Kramer (96.5 m / 96) brought the lead into the dry. The half-time runner-up Chiara Hölzl (93.5 / 89.5) was fifth. Sophie Sorschag (88/88) landed in twelfth place, 15th Daniela Iraschko-Stolz (79 / 87.5) made up 14 places after a weak first jump in the final and Lisa Eder (85 / 75.5) slipped into place 21 back.
The final World Cup phase will be held in Russia. In the so-called “Blue Bird Tour” – the ranking of which is now headed by Kramer from Salzburg – a second individual competition will take place in Nizhny Tagil on Sunday (1:00 p.m.) before the season finale will take place next week in Tchaikovsky with two individuals and a team competition .
