Klinec took care of the first victory of the Slovenian jumpers this winter, otherwise the 12th so far. The 24-year-old competitor from Poljana nad Škofja Loka is in exceptional shape. She already got off to a great start in Oslo on Friday when she won the qualifiers. She continued with second place on Saturday, then was also second in Sunday’s qualifications, and she put the finishing touches with a magnificent final jump and victory on the cult Norwegian device.

“The first jump was good. I made a small mistake because I was a little late. In the second I was just focused on the execution. Crazy jump! I finally succeeded in the competition. I’ve been waiting for that jump all season. Another victory and this on the famous Holmenkolln. Fulfilling one career dream,Klinec told TV Slovenija, adding about the extraordinary second jump:I knew it was mountain climber and that I can concretely “cut”. I did that and really enjoyed the jump.”
