Oberstdorf (dpa) - The national ski jumping trainer for women, Andreas Bauer, is satisfied with the progress made in recent years in terms of equality.

“A lot has changed, and women's ski jumping has picked up speed again.

Of course, the girls still use the public platform to say what is still missing, ”said Bauer of the German press agency.

At the World Championships in Oberstdorf, the large hill individual for female ski jumpers is in the program for the first time.

In the Nordic Combined, a World Cup competition for women will take place for the first time.

In the coming season, the German Ski Association (DSV) is considering a joint ski jumping World Cup in Willingen, said Bauer.

A four hills tournament for women and ski flying have not yet been introduced.

In this context, the 57-year-old coach likes to speak of the “last bastions” to be conquered.

The female trainer is more concerned about the male colleagues.

"I don't like the development in men's ski jumping," said Bauer.

There are five or six big nations, behind which more and more participating countries threaten to break away.
