Nika Prevc also dominates in Villach

At the top of the ski jumpers, the 18-year-old Slovenian Nika Prevc is currently hard to beat. She won the jumping in Villach.

After her title in the Two-Nights Tour for women's ski jumpers in the World Cup, Slovenia's Nika Prevc is winning one after another. The 18-year-old also won the normal hill individual at the competition in Villach in Austria on Thursday. With jumps of 94,5 and 95 meters, Prevc once again outpaced all of the competition by a large margin. She had already won clearly on Wednesday.


The rivals for second place Eva Pinkelnig from Austria and third place Nika Kriznar from Slovenia cannot currently keep up with the exceptional talent. Prevc has now won four of the last five World Cup competitions. In addition to the double pack in Villach, she also prevailed in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Engelberg.

Sieff again in the top 20

Of the three jumpers on the Italian team, Lara Malsiner and Annika Sieff qualified for the second round. Jessica Malsiner got stuck in the qualification with a distance of 81,5 meters and 36th place. Her sister showed a solid performance in the second jump, but had to settle for 27th place (206,2 points). The best Azzurra was again high-flyer Sieff (217,0 points), who finished in the top twenty for the fourth time this season. The Trentino team ended up in 19th place.
