The Salzburg woman won the “Blue Bird” tour, which includes two competitions each in Nizhny Tagil and Tchaikovsky. The second Tchaikovsky competition had to be canceled on Sunday after one round due to the wind, and Kramer only missed the overall World Cup that went to Nika Kriznar by 11 points.
Third place was enough for the Slovenian to stay ahead of Kramer and to overtake Sara Takanashi, who was only seventh, by nine points. Kramer went into the four Russia competitions 151 points behind and has almost made up for this deficiency with victories four to seven of the season. If Kriznar had only finished fifth and Takanashi eighth on Sunday, she would have intercepted both. In return, the ÖSV team won the Nations Cup again 170 points ahead of Slovenia.
In the last round of the season, Kramer once again proved her class. With 146.5 m she flew over the two-year-old Schanzenrekrod of the German Juliane Seyfarth by 5.5 m, was 12.5 m further than the second-placed Silje Opseth. The lead over the Norwegian was 16.0 points. Kriznar (131.5) was only 2.1 points away from fifth place, followed by Daniela Iraschko-Stolz (131.5) and Chiara Hölzl (128.0). Takanashi was 2.9 points ahead of eighth.
“It was a little crazy today,” said Kramer. “At first I thought that we wouldn’t jump on the large hill because of the wind. But then I was happy that we jumped. I prefer large hills.” She had a simple explanation for the overwhelming hill record: “From the first jump I had an incredible feeling. I had a good jump and the wind was very good. Winning the Blue Bird classification is a perfect end to the season. “
Kramer outstripped Takanashi by four wins this season, Kriznar by five. Ultimately, the decisive factor was that the 19-year-old dropped three competitions from the rating. She was disqualified in the second three Hinzenbach competitions and was not allowed to compete in both Rasnov competitions due to an unclear corona test situation. After narrowly missing out on the overall World Cup, Kramer’s tight decisions continued, in Oberstdorf she had twice finished fourth in the individual World Cup.
The team of ÖSV head coach Harald Rodlauer laid the basis for winning the Nations Cup on the Sunday before the individual competition by winning the team competition that was postponed from the previous day. Iraschko-Stolz, Sophie Sorschag, Hölzl and Kramer also prevailed after one round with 373.7 points, 25.2 points ahead of Slovenia. Another twelve points behind was the German quartet third. Yuka Seto was disqualified from contender Japan.
It was the second women’s World Cup team competition this season. Slovenia won the first on January 23rd in Ljubno in Slovenia, ahead of Norway and Austria. At the World Championships in Oberstdorf, the Austrians prevailed over Slovenia and Norway. At the end of their most successful season to date, Kramer also received prize money of 10,000 Swiss francs (around 9,000 euros) for winning the Blue Bird Tour.
