Markus Eisenbichler has aroused with a strong qualification soft hopes for the Olympic decision from the Großschanze on Saturday. The former world champion landed with a flight to 129.0 m in six rank and was therefore the best of the most recently disappointing DSV Adler. Hope Karl Geiger came on his 29th birthday with 128.0 m on the twelfth place.
The winner of the qualification was the Norwegian Marius Lindvik with 135.0 m in front of his teammate Halvor Egner Granerud and Routinier Peter Prevc from Slovenia. Normal Schanzen Olympic champion Ryoyu Kobayashi from Japan had to sit down with rank nine.
Constantin Schmid (Oberaudorf) followed in the 19th place. Pius Paschke (Kieferfelden), who had still missed in the individual of the normal skill, made it as 30. also easily under the best 50 and is thus on Saturday (19.00 oz / 12.00 o’clock mez / zdf and Eurosport).
Only spectators was Stephan Leyhe. National coach Stefan Horngacher was allowed to nominate only four jumpers, the Willinger had shown the weakest achievements of the German quintet in training. Before the team jump on Monday Leyhe should still get a chance to prove himself in training.
