The Nordic World Ski Championships are taking place in Oberstdorf for the third time in their history.

The German athletes can hope for medals on the hill and in the cross-country ski run.

  • The Nordic World Ski Championships will take place from February 23 to March 7 in Oberstdorf, Bavaria.

  • Eric Frenzel and Markus Eisenbichler want to defend their 2019 World Cup title.

  • The public is not allowed due to the corona pandemic.

Oberstdorf - It should have been a lavish winter sports festival with thousands of guests from all over the world.

But the

corona pandemic

thwarted the organizers of the

Nordic World Ski Championships

.

On January 19, the expected and sobering announcement came: Due to the corona pandemic, the World Ski Championships will

take place

without an audience

.

While the fans and organizers find it difficult to live with the news, the athletes are used to the competitions without an audience.

Although

Vinzenz Geiger's

German athletes have no

home advantage, they still have hopes for medals.

Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf: Will Markus Eisenbichler fly to the World Cup?

In the competitions, which

take place

from

February 23 to March 7,

the athletes compete in

ski jumping

,

cross-country skiing

and

Nordic combined

.

For the third time in history, the

International Ski Federation (FIS) is organizing

the World Championships in Oberstdorf.

While the Nordic combined athletes all too often

had to admit defeat to

the Norwegian high-flyer

Jarl Magnus Riiber

in the current World Cup

,

Markus Eisenbichler is

hoping

for gold in ski jumping.

The Upper Bavarian is hot on the heels of Riiber in the overall standings and will

draw additional motivation

with his

2019 world championship title

.

Olympic silver medal winner

Katharina Althaus is also

aiming for the podium.

After the

Olympic medal in 2018

and the

world championship title in 2019

with the women's and mixed teams, the 24-year-old is one of the strongest jumpers in the field.

In the current World Cup she is only ninth, but the local hero knows her home hill very well.

Nordic combined athletes: will Rießle and Geiger succeed in defending their title?

When the Nordic combined athletes start the title race on February 26th, their eyes will be particularly on

Fabian Rießle

,

Eric Frenzel

and

Vinzenz Geiger

.

The duo Rießle / Frenzel stands for the successes of the last few years and goes into the race as defending champions.

The 23-year-old Vinzenz Geiger, on the other hand, should build on the triumphs of his teammates in the future.

Although the Norwegian Jarl Magnus Riiber runs and jumps in his own league in the current World Cup season, Geiger is hoping for the podium.

Similar to Katharina Althaus, the 23-year-old

grew up

with the

Oberstdorf ski jump

and

cross-country ski run

.

An advantage over Riiber, which may allow the runner-up in the World Cup ranking to jump to the top.

The podium is the absolute exception for the German cross-country skiers: The Russians Alexander Bolschunow and Iwan Yakimuschkin lead the table for men, for women there is no way to Jessica Diggins and

Julia Stupak over.

The best-placed Germans are in the men's 24th place with

Lucas Bögl

and

Katharina Hennig

(eleventh place).

However, the 24-year-old Saxon recently stood out with sensational placements: At the World Cup in Falun, Sweden on January 30th, she missed the podium by 0.2 seconds.
