The first Continental Cup competition in Klingenthal ended with a win for Poland. Klemens Muranka won ahead of Mikhail Maksimochkin of Russia and Austrian Thomas Diethart.

Klemens Muranka posted a jump on 133.5 m in the first round and was in striking distance to the podium as fifth. With 132.5 m he then showed the best performance in the final and took the win. For the 19-year-old, who is considered an outstanding talent in Poland since he was a kid, this was his first win in the COC.

"I'm very happy today, it was the first win of my career. My jumps were good and the conditions were as well. I want to thank all my coaches and the team", said the winner.

Mikhail Maksimochkin achieved the best result of his career as second, but even more was possible. The young Russian had a great first jump on 142 m, but he could not repeat this performance in the final and landed already after 119.5 m (248.2 points). But still, this second place is a great success for him.

The third place went to Austrian Thomas Diethart with 134.5 m and 125.5 m (246.5 points). The best German, Marinus Kraus, jumped on 131.5 m and 128.5 m and missed the podium in front of his home crowd by only 0.5 points.

It was a close competition also on the following positions. Michael Hayboeck of Austria (5th) and Poland's Krzysztof Mietus (6th) came in only 0.6 and 0.7 points behind third-placed Diethart.

Bartlomiej Klusek (7th) and Aleksander Zniszczol (9th) completed the once again very good result of the Polish team. Also Italian Roberto Dellasega will be happy with his eighth place in this competition.

Before the final COC competition of the summer, Jakub Janda is leading the overall ranking with 401 points. Marinus Kraus is second with 364 points, followed by Poland's Krzysztof Biegun (292 points).
