Top 3 athletes quotes:
I’m jumping on a very high level. There were some little mistakes, but overall I’m satisfied with the performance. The most important thing is that I enjoy jumping, with that I can fly far. Now I’ll continue with the COC as planned.
I’m really happy because usually I have quite a few problems here in Planica. Yesterday I made a mistake with equipment choice. But these are the sort of things that happen. I’m happy that I could correct that today and proved to myself that I can be with the best.
I didn’t show my best jump in the first round, I was a bit nervous. I knew that I could do better in the second round, focused on that and made a good jump. I’m happy with the result.
