Marita Kramer won the last women’s World Cup competition, which was canceled after one round, with a perfect jump in Tchaikovsky in Russia on Sunday. The Austrian achieved a hill record with 146.5 meters and ended the season with her fourth win in a row. She only missed the overall World Cup triumph by a very thin margin.
The second round had to be canceled after waiting for a long time because the wind was too strong. The 19-year-old Kramer ended the season with seven wins in 13 individual competitions, but missed competitions due to a coronavirus infection cost her the overall victory.
Daniela Iraschko-Stolz and Chiara Hölzl finished fourth and fifth at the end of the season, so Austria also secured the Nations Cup. Sophie Sorschag finished eleventh.
ÖSV victory also in the team competition
The team competition held before the final singles also ended with an Austrian victory after one round. The world champions Iraschko-Stolz, Sorschag, Hölzl and Kramer prevailed 25.2 points ahead of Slovenia in the competition that was postponed from the previous day. Another twelve points behind, the German quartet came third.
It was the second women’s World Cup team competition this winter. The first on January 23rd in Ljubno in Slovenia was won by the hosts ahead of Norway and Austria. At the Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf, the Austrians prevailed over Slovenia and Norway.
