At the 3rd match of the Norwegian tour in Lillehammer, Emi Klinec managed to get on the podium again, she won 3rd place. Nika Križnar finished in 6th place, and Katra Komar set the best result of her career with 13th place. The big globe has already been cast!

The winner was the Norwegian Silje Opseth (the fifth victory of her career in the World Cup), second was the German Selina Freitag, 0.6 points behind. Ema Klinec, who consolidated her lead in the Raw Air tour total, was 6.5 points behind.

Eirin Maria Kvandal from first place to 7th.The best Slovenian jumper this winter was second after the first series (120.0 m), trailing Norwegian Eirin Maria Kvandal by 4.5 points. She landed at 122 meters in the final, overtaken by Silje Opseth and Selina Freitag, while Eirin Maria Kvandal slipped to seventh place after her trainer’s tactics of lowering the runway did not pay off.

Ema Klinec emphasized that she succeeded in very challenging conditions (especially in the first series, it snowed heavily, as a result of which the match started with a half-hour delay) to ignore all disturbing factors:

A very tough match. I’m glad I kept my composure and got on the podium. I don’t know exactly what happened in the first jump, it twisted me a bit. The jump from the table was very good. Weird. The second one was beautiful, but in worse conditions, so less meters. In general, I am very satisfied. Once again – to get on the podium in such a race – so everything has to match and you have to show good jumps,” said Ema Klinec. Nika Prevc for 22nd and Maja Vtič for 27th place also won points from the Slovenes.

First Globe for Eva PinkelnigThe big crystal globe is already in the hands of Austrian Eva Pinkelnig (Katharina Althaus is behind by 215 points with two games to go), who otherwise did not shine today, after the first series she was 16th, but in the end she was eleventh.

In the fight for 3rd place overall, Ema Klinec increased her lead over Anna Odine Stroem (today 12th place) from five points to 43 points.

In the morning qualifiers, Nika Križnar was sixth, and Ema Klinec, who had previously been the best in both training sessions, was seventh.

On Wednesday, there will be another match in Olympic Lillehammer, it will start at 16:30 (broadcast on TV SLO 2).
