Yukiya Sato won the men's large hill at the All Japan Championship, which was held as the first official ski jumping game after the spread of the new coronavirus.

The Ski Jumping All Japan Championship held in Hakuba Village, Nagano Prefecture is the first official competition in Japan after the spread of infection.

On the final day, the 25th, a men's large hill was held.

Of these, Sato, who won the Normal Hill on the 24th, jumped 129 meters in the first run and finished second.

The second time he flew 127 meters 50 and won a total of 279.2 points.

Daiki Ito was second, Junshiro Kobayashi was third, and Ryoyu Kobayashi, who was third overall in the World Cup last season, was seventh, and 48-year-old veteran Noriaki Kasai was ninth.

"I'm frankly happy because I was aiming for it."

Yukiya Sato, who won the championship at Large Hill following Normal Hill on the 24th, said, "I'm frankly happy because I was aiming for it. The first time was not so good as a jump, but the conditions were good. The second time was Hakuba. I think I was able to make the best jump since I came. "

On top of that, he said, "I don't think I can compete with the top players in the world as it is. I want to do my best as a member of the Japanese team."

In addition, 48-year-old veteran Noriaki Kasai, who was in 9th place, said, "I'm sorry that the distance would have increased by about 3 meters if there was a little more wind, but I felt that I was able to make a good jump. I've come this far with a feeling, so I want to show a dynamic jump so that I can beat the World Cup members in the next tournament. "
