“In the end the grains were simply missing, which is a bit of a shame,” said record world champion Frenzel, who, exactly ten years to the day after his first of seven World Championship gold medals in 2011 in Oslo, was another highlight of his big hill on the normal hill Missed career.

Nordic World Ski Championships in the live ticker: Rydzek is not nominated - Terence Weber takes over

The two Oberstdorf local heroes experienced a bitter disappointment: Vinzenz Geiger came in 14th, Johannes Rydzek, four-time Lahti World Champion in 2017, came in 28th, and that has consequences for the team competition.

Rydzek is replaced by Terence Weber and is not part of the German squad for the first time since 2013.

In 2015 and 2017, Germany won the world championship title.

Before that, however, there was a “curse” on the race: After the World Cup triumph in 1987 in Oberstdorf, with today's national coach Weinbuch, there were 14 World Cup relays in a row without a German victory.
