Anže Lanišek
I made some pretty good jumps, but I know I still have reserves. I’m glad that I’ve jumped relaxed, which was my goal for today. I had to focus on my jumps in on myself and not consider other elements. It didn’t matter that I had a big point advantage I just wanted to enjoy jumping.

Philipp Aschenwald
It's really awesome. It’s my third competition in Planica and my third podium. It was a great performance from my side and nice to compete here. I thought that maybe I can beat Lanišek with a really good jump bit he was too good today. Tomorrow I’ll fight again for the first place.

Pius Paschke
I feel great. This is my first COC this winter and I’m really happy with the third place. It was quite snowy in the trial round, the landing was a bit soft but everything else was quite perfect. Tomorrow I’ll try to make good jumps again and then we’ll see.
