Andreas Stjernen, Norway
"It was a good day for us, we had some really good jumps. Our team loves Planica. It's good that it's over tomorrow, it's been a long season. It's been a hard fight in many competitions. I will enjoy the last day tomorrow."

Markus Eisenbichler, Germany
"My jumps in the competition were okay and I'm really happy with the second place. The Norwegians are jumping very, very good, but maybe we can beat them in Ski Flying next season. I like the hill here, it's always nice to come to Planica. Tomorrow I hope for good conditions and then we'll see what happens."

Robert Kranjec, Slovenia
"I'm very satisfied with this result and I'm happy that I could jump in front of a home crowd and finish on the podium. I had a bad season, but now I'm enjoying the time in Planica. I'm happy that I could end the season with nice flights here."
