Ammann seeks more glory on home snow

>> Four-time Olympic champion Simon Ammann (SUI) could be competing for the last time on his home hill in Engelberg this weekend.

>> Ammann has won three times in Engelberg (once in 2008 and twice in 2009). If he can win a fairytale double triumph this weekend, he would equal the record of five wins at Engelberg, held by Janne Ahonen (FIN). Austria's Gregor Schlierenzauer (four wins in Engelberg) and Andreas Kofler (three wins in Engelberg) can also threaten Ahonen's record.

>> If Ammann wins his fourth World Cup event in Engelberg, it will be the first venue to witness four or more victories from the Swiss wizard. He has currently won three times at Engelberg, Oslo and Lillehammer.

>> Ammann's seven World Cup podiums at Engelberg are already his most at any single venue. His very first World Cup podium at any venue came in Engelberg on 16 December 2001, when he finished second.

>> Ammann signaled a return to form last weekend with his first two podiums of the season in Titisee-Neustadt, and he sits in equal seventh place in the World Cup standings heading into this weekend.

>> It was the first time since March 2012 that Ammann had registered two consecutive World Cup podiums. Now he can make it three or four in a row for the first time since a run of seven in a row from February to December 2010.

Ahonen can be the 1st man with 13 WC podiums at one venue

>> Janne Ahonen came fifth in the second event at Titisee-Neustadt on Sunday, his best World Cup result since he came fifth in Garmisch on New Year's Day, 2011 (he did not compete in 2011/12 and 2012/13).

>> Ahonen has 12 career individual World Cup podiums in Engelberg, tied with his countryman Matti Nykänen for the most individual World Cup podiums at any venue. Nykänen made 12 podiums in Lahti.

>> Schlierenzauer has nine podiums in Engelberg and can become the fourth man after Nykänen, Ahonen and Jens Weißflog (GDR/GER), to make at least 10 podiums at a single venue. Ahonen is the only man to have done it at more than one venue (Engelberg and Bischofshofen).

>> Ahonen's first World Cup podium in Engelberg was a victory on 19 December 1993 as a 16-year-old, which was his first World Cup podium at any venue. His most recent podium there was also a victory, also on 19 December – this time in 2004.

>> If he wins one of the competitions in Engelberg, Ahonen would join Nykänen as the only men to win six or more World Cup events at one venue. Nykänen won eight times in Lahti and six times in Sapporo.

>> Schlierenzauer can also achieve this by winning the double in Engelberg to add to his four previous victories there.

Austria can equal record for most WC wins at one venue

>> Austrian jumpers have won 15 individual World Cup competitions in Engelberg and can equal the record for most individual World Cup wins by one country at one venue by winning both events this weekend.

>> The record of 17 World Cup wins by one country at one venue is held by Austria in Sapporo and Finland in Lahti.

>> Austrian jumpers have won six out of the last seven competitions in Engelberg, broken up only by Anders Bardal's (NOR) win in 2011.

>> In the last 16 individual World Cup events in Engelberg since 2006, Austrian jumpers have won 10 of them and have claimed a remarkable 27 of the possible 48 podium places, with Schlierenzauer, Morgenstern and Kofler accounting for 23 podiums between them during this time.
