BOB:
Patrick Baumgartner missed out on a top position at the World Cup in St. Moritz (Switzerland). The 29-year-old only set the 14th best time in the four-man bobsleigh in the first round. The decision went a little better: the 9th running time meant 12th place in the end. In the duel for victory, the quartet led by Johannes Lochner retained the upper hand over Francesco Friedrich & Co. The runner-up was 0,10 seconds behind. Latvian Emils Cipulis completed the podium (+0,40).

NORDIC COMBINATION: Samuel Costa and Aaron Kostner made it into the top 25 thanks to strong running performances in the Compact Race in Oberstdorf. After a mixed jump, the two people from Val Gardena were only in 39th and 40th place. As they ran, they took advantage of the smaller gaps in the newly founded format and made up place after place. Costa finished 24th after a strong final sprint, with Kostner finishing one position behind. The Norwegian Jarl Magnus Riiber took victory ahead of Stefan Rettenegger from Austria and the German Manuel Faißt.

NORDIC COMBINATION: Daniela Dejori made an exclamation mark at the World Cup in Oberstdorf. The 21-year-old achieved the best result of her career in the so-called Compact Race. After the jump, the athlete from St. Christina was still in 16th place, but she then made a furious comeback on the cross-country ski trail, which was rewarded with 6th place. In the final sprint, Dejori lost some of his strength, otherwise even 4th place would have been possible. At the front, Ida Marie Hagen, Gyda Westvold Hansen and Mari Leinan Lund celebrated a Norwegian triple victory.
