Slovenia claimed a one-two at the first of two individual Women’s Ski Jumping World Cup competitions in Hinzenbach, Austria, with home favourite and World Cup leader Marita Kramer only coming in fifth place.

Victory went to Ursa Bogataj of Slovenia, the gold medallist at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics in the women’s normal hill competition, with a total points score of 249.7.

Bogataj registered 93.0 metres with her first jump, and 92.0 metres with her second, as she claimed a comfortable victory by 22 points from compatriot Nika Kriznar, bronze medallist in the women’s normal hill event in Beijing.

Kriznar claimed second place with a total of 227.7, following jumps of 85.0 metres and 88.0 metres.

The podium was completed by home jumper Lisa Eder of Austria, who scored 212.8 points, after registering jumps of 81.5 and 86.5 metres.   

Fourth place went to Frida Westman of Sweden who finished less than a point behind Eder with 211.9.

Kramer, who has won five events already this season, finished fifth, with jumps of 81.5 and 81.0 metres helping her to a score of 208.2 points.

Despite her struggles today, Kramer still has a comfortable lead in the overall World Cup standings.

She sits on 915, with Bogataj now her closest challenger following her win today on 701.

Germany’s Katharina Althaus, who did not compete today, sits just three points behind Bogataj in third place, with 698 points.

A second HS90 Women’s World Cup is scheduled to take place in Hinzenbach tomorrow.
