On the Heimschanze in Allgäu, the world champion and the flight world champion are among the closest favorites, led by Norway's Halvor Egner Granerud.

The normal hill individual two years ago in Seefeld was strange: Dawid Kubacki from Poland jumped from 27th place to gold in a snow lottery.

Ryoyu Kobayashi and Karl Geiger no longer had a chance in the snowstorm.

“The athletes Geiger and Kobayashi, they were kidnapped today.

They also deserved a medal, ”said former national coach Werner Schuster at the time.
