Anders Fannemel first World Cup winner in Nizhny Tagil

Severin Freund, Anders Fannemel, Gregor Schlierenzauer - FIS

Anders Fannemel took his first win in the World Cup. At the World Cup premiere in Nizhny Tagil (RUS) the Norwegian scored a total of 263.1 points with 132 m and 133 m and came in ahead of Gregor Schlierenzauer and Severin Freund.

The 23-year-old, who is now leading the overall World Cup, said afterwards: It's feels great to win a World Cup for the first time. Finally I was able to show two good jumps in the competition. In training I had some problems and I was struggling to find the rhythm of the hill, but in the competition it worked very well. Of course the opponents were very strong and it's a new feeling for me to be the last to jump in the final. I was in this situation before and I could not show a good performance. It was amazing that I was finally able to do that. It will be a new experience to wear the yellow bib tomorrow.

Schlierenzauer and Freund satisfied

Schlierenzauer jumped on 129 m and 133 m and missed his 54th win by 5.8 points. I like Nizhny Tagil, the atmosphere was really good with a lot of fans. We have been at some locations with a lot less spectators, this is a good place for ski jumping. It's something special to hold the record for the most wins in the World Cup and it's not as easy as it looks. I want to jump on a high level and I was able to do that today, but Anders was better. Sometimes you have to celebrate a bit and the Norwegian guys know how to do that. We might celebrate a bit at home. The 4-Hills-Tournament starts soon, there's not much time left, told the Austrian.

Severin Freund followed in third with 254.9 points and 130.5 m and 127 m. Of course, when you are in a good position after the first jump you want to try to win. My second jump was not as good as the first one and Anders was simply better. Im quite happy about todays competition. I made a little mistake, but I was jumping on high level and Im satisfied with the way things are going right now. The time for celebration is after the season or at least after the main events. But of course, sometimes you can have a dinner together with the whole team. For us its a tradition that the one who has the best result has to buy everybody a drink.

Kraft closely misses the podium

Stefan Kraft came in fourth and missed the podium by only 0.5 points. The Austrian jumped on 130.5 m and 130 m. Peter Prevc was fifth, and came in clearly behind the best four with 127 m and 124.5 m and 240.0 points. Matjaz Pungertar, who was seventh with 238.2 points, Robert Kranjec (11th) and Jernej Damjan (12th) could also achieve top results for the Slovenian team.

Anders Bardal came in sixth with 238.9 points, the eighth place went to Marinus Kraus with 237.4 points. Michael Hayboeck (234.4 points) and Piotr Zyla (232.0 points) completed the Top 10. The best Finn, Lauri Asikainen, was 13th, Rune Velta and Markus Eisenbichler shared the 14th place. Also the local heroes of Russia were able to achieve good results with Vladislav Boyarintsev and Dimitry Vassiliev in 16th and 17th. Ilmir Hazetdinov (29th) and Alexej Romashov (30th) could also score World Cup points. Veterans Michael Neumayer (18th) and Jakub Janda (21st) were also in the final of the Top 30. Jarkko Maeaettae, the winner of the qualification, finished 27th.
