Because it is the COC and I was the favourite it was not all just about the win. Today the conditions for jumping were really hard. I tried to show better jumps than yesterday. If I want to show even more, I make mistakes, it is so close from good to bad jump. Than I have go one step back like in the first round today. Final jump was better again. And I don't like tail wind, but anyway I'm happy today. Now I'm going to Ljubno, it's like my home competition. There ara a lot of spectators and Spela's (Rogelj) Fan Club is the best on the world. I love to be there, I love to compete there. Skijumping is really very popular in Ljubno. I hope I can surprise, it will be very special for me for coming back to World Cup competition again.

First jump was not very good, because of the tail wind. Second jump was much better, because the wind was helping me this time. That's why I can be satsfied after today's competition. I must say that it would be even better if there would be a wind compensation, but still, it's good result for me. I'm very confidend before next competitions.
Jerneja Brecl, 3rd place
My second jump today was really not good. I don't know why, I just now that it was my mistake already in the inrun. Now I'm looking forward to Ljubno where I want to get some world cup points.
