Anders Jacobsen achieved his goal and was able to
return to the hill in August after he was recently
sidelined due to a knee injury.
The Norwegian made his first jumps of the season
this week on the Midtstubakken in Oslo. "I
was jumping on two days and it worked very well",
the former 4-Hills-Tournament winner said on nettavisen.no.
"It feels really good to be back again, but
I know I still have a lot of work to do. Now it's
about making enough jumps to get the right feeling
The 29-year-old wants to be completely fit again
for the upcoming winter, but he didn't set any particular
goals for the 2014/15 season. "I want to prove
to myself that I can come back after this injury."
With the two youngsters Phillip Sjoeen and Daniel-Andre
Tande, who both showed some strong performances
this summer, there will be more competition for
the veteran in a fight for a spot on the Norwegian
team for the World Cup and the World Championships
in Falun. But Jacobsen considers this development
positive: "It would be good for the team if
these guys could continue jumping on this level
also in winter. We need more than just Bardal at
