The ski jumping prodigy is unstoppable

The Women's Ski Jumping World Cup is currently underway in Japan. After the first stop in Sapporo, the World Cup will stop in Zao this weekend. Lara and Jessica Malsiner also had reason to be happy at Nika Prevc's next brilliant performance.

Nika Prevc was once again in a class of her own in Zaro. In icy temperatures and difficult wind conditions, the Slovenian impressively beat her competition with jumps of 98,5 and 96 meters and 235,2 points. With her sixth World Cup success in the last nine races, the 18-year-old further extended her lead in the overall World Cup.


Local hero Yuki Ito (223,1 points) and large hill world champion Alexandria Loutitt (216,7 points) from Canada completed the podium. Ski jumping world champion Katharina Schmid from Germany suffered another setback on her way to her old strength five days after her first podium finish of the season. At the start of the second stop of the Japanese tour, the 27-year-old didn't get past 30th place.

Annika Sieff from Cavalese came in 23rd place. There is a super team competition in Zao tomorrow, Saturday, before another individual competition follows on Sunday (8.30 a.m.).
