Stina Nilsson, SWE
We had a great day as a team. You could say we are a good couple. Ida did a great work. In the final lap I was in a good position and I could ski as I wanted. I am very satisfied with the weekend in Planica.

Sandra Ringwlad, GER
I attacked in the last lap maybe little bit too early but my goal was to break the field and go away. It was a great teamwork to compete in Hanna. I am very happy with my first podium. In a team it is even more fun. In the overall, the results of the German team are amazing and it shows we have a great atmosphere in the team.

Dietmar Noeckler, ITA
I did not feel that good in the semifinal. I knew Federico is the best finisher in the world. I tried to work hard to prepare a good position for him. We have won 5 Italian national championships together. It is great to win the World Cup again.

Renaud Jay, FRA
It is amazing to be on the podium. I was fourth yesterday. I knew Baptiste was very strong today. I wanted to gain some meters before the last exchange so that Baptiste has advantage on Pellegrino. But Federico was too strong.

Valentin Chauvin, FRA
I am excited to be on the podium. It is my first World Cup and it is just amazing. It is fantastic I could be on the podium with my friends. The whole team did great here during the whole weekend.
