Nordic World Ski Championships: women's freestyle in the live ticker - German quartet starts

First report from March 1st:

Oberstdorf - At the Nordic World Ski Championships *, the German athletes have so far shown a changeable face: top in ski jumping, flop in the cross-country ski run.

Some decisions are still pending, for example the 10 kilometer freestyle for women.

Katharina Hennig is not in the squad for the ten-kilometer race in free technology.

Instead of Germany's best cross-country skier, team boss Peter Schlickenrieder nominated Pia Fink, Victoria Carl, Antonia Fräbel and Lisa Lohmann for the competition on Tuesday (1:15 p.m. / Eurosport 2).

The 24-year-old Hennig from Oberstdorf by choice has her strengths in the classic technique, but this winter also achieved decent results in free style.

At the home World Cup in the Allgäu, things have so far been more than mixed for the German hopefuls. 

At the skiathlon over 15 kilometers last Saturday, Hennig, who had already achieved an individual podium at the Tour de Ski this season, did not get past 29th place.

For the cross-country skiing division, Pleiten (Lucas Bögl as the best man in the 29th skiathlon), Pech (Janosch Brugger lost his skis in the team sprint) and Pannen (overgrown skis with skiathlon hope Katharina Hennig) are all about success.

"Because if we are honest: At our level of performance, we simply do not fight for medals here," says national coach Peter Schlickenrieder.

Also in the two seasons on Thursday and Friday it would take a miracle for the first cross-country ski run precious metal since 2011. (epp / dpa)
