The 12th round of the individual Ski Jumping Men's World Cup was held in Austria on the 5th, and Japanese ace Ryoyu Kobayashi won the championship in a come-from-behind victory, scoring the sixth victory of the season.
Kobayashi won three consecutive victories in "Jump Week", which competes in the four games that are held annually during the year-end and New Year holidays.
Round 12 of the individual Ski Jumping Men's World Cup was scheduled to take place in Innsbruck, Austria on the 4th, but was canceled due to strong winds and was held in Bischofshofen, Austria on the 5th.
The tournament was held on a large hill with a hill size of 142 meters, which also served as the third race of "Jump Week", which competes in the four games that are held annually during the year-end and New Year holidays.
The Japanese have won five World Cups this season, and five people, including Kobayashi, who has won two consecutive victories, have participated in "Jump Week".
Kobayashi flew 137 meters for the first time in the snow and poor visibility to take second place, 5.7 points behind the top.
In the second time, in a disadvantageous tailwind, he extended the flight distance and marked 137 meters 50, totaling 291.3, and won the sixth victory of the season by reversing.
With this, we have won 4 consecutive World Cup wins and 25 wins in total, which is the largest number of Japanese men's wins that we have.
Kobayashi said, "I was nervous, but I'm glad I made a good jump. I'm always aiming for one win in front of me, so I'll do my best to win tomorrow."
Kobayashi will face the 13th round of the World Cup on the 6th with the first overall victory of the Jump Week for the first time in Japan.
