Tough opponent for Deschwanden
Tour leader Granerud weakens in the qualification
The previously sovereign Four Hills Tournament leader Halvor Egner Granerud caught a weak day. In the qualification from Innsbruck he only loads in 13th place.
Halvor Egner Granerud does not have a good day in the Innsbruck qualifier.
Halvor Egner Granerud only qualified 13th in Innsbruck with a jump of 116 meters. His first pursuer, on the other hand, the World Cup leader Dawid Kubacki from Poland, wins the competition with 128 meters.
Gregor Deschwanden will also push off the beam at Bergisel on Wednesday. The Lucerne lands after 114 meters (35th) and caught one of the heaviest possible opponents in a knockout duel: German Markus Eisenbichler won the world championship title on this hill in 2019.
Innsbruck is the 3rd station of the Four Hills Tournament. The Norwegian’s lead over Kubacki is the equivalent of 15 meters. The Finn Janne Ahonen last traveled to Austria in 2005 with such a thick cushion for the final two competitions. (SDA)
