"No energy" for the bronze medal
SEEFELD. Ladies Ski Jumping: Unexpectedly, often comes. Daniela Iraschko-Stolz had already removed the precious metal after the first round, then Steirerin overcame it.

Obfuscated by a doping attack, yesterday's World Cup day ended, at least from a sports point of view, for Austria. Daniela Iraschko-Stolz won the women's ski jump from the normal hill in Seefeld to the fifth red-white-red medal in those title fights. The bronze gleams to the Steirerin after a first passage twisted almost like gold. "I had all the luck with me today, it's unbelievable, I have so lack of motivation and energy, but in the final I felt why the ski jump is so casual, the status of this medal is very high," Iraschko-Stolz said. who had rolled up the field with a "flight" 105.5 meters from the back. In the interim, the 35-year-old was "only" the eighth.
Of course, there was no way around two ladies: Norway's gold-domineering Maren Lundby and the German silver-haired Katharina Althaus, who lost only half a point, were in a class of their own. "I'm very happy because I put a lot of pressure on myself and I really wanted this gold medal," Lundby said. The 24-year-old nervous has already crowned 2018 in Pyeongchang Olympic champion.
Eva Pinkelnig, who finished fifth in the mixed competition with Iraschko-Stolz on Saturday (4pm), also performed very well. Carinthia scored 5.8 points from the bronze. "I'm very pleased, but the stage did not fit the second jump, so I knew it probably would not be enough for a medal," said Vorarlberger, 30.
Jacqueline Seifriedsberger (SC Waldzell) finished the individual competition in 16th place. "I have to see this in a positive way, that's fine, but that's all I'm looking for now," said Schildorner, 28, who loved the atmosphere at the stadium: "I like the atmosphere, it's a lot of fun." "Chiara Hölzl was not pleased with herself, the 21-year-old from Salzburg remained short of expected on 26.
She can not be defeated.
Iraschko's pride, on the other hand, has been overcome once again. A fall in Lillehammer, a mild illness in Japan, knee problems in Rasnov and finally pneumonia with antibiotics and a mandatory three-week break increased iron ore this season. Now she is shining in Seefeld with two medals (silver in the team and bronze) for the bet – and has a third in sight.
After silver with good foreboding on the normal hill
The silver medal won in the team competition in Innsbruck gave a lot of impetus to the men of the Austrian ski jump for the individual competition of the Seefelder Normalschanze (tomorrow at 16h, first thing in the morning). Defender Stefan Kraft and his four colleagues, including Michael Kirchberg-Theninger Hayböck, sit well in qualifying today (4:30 p.m., ORF 1). "I certainly want to fight for the medals," said Kraft, who said goodbye to his roommate Hayböck on Monday shortly after the World Cup events. The pair took the break for a trip to Kühtai. "We eat well and enjoy the sun, we are strong," said Kraft, who had triumphed two years ago in Lahti in front of Germans Andreas Wellinger and Markus Eisenbichler. In fact, Hayböck was the sixth in the 2017 World Cup.
