The German ski jumpers showed increasing form in the first team competition of the season with third place.

Markus Eisenbichler, team debutant Philipp Raimund, Karl Geiger and Andreas Wellinger confidently flew onto the podium in Zakopane one week after the disappointing Four Hills Tournament with 1144.4 points.

Victory went to Austria (1151.5) just ahead of hosts Poland (1150.5).

Daniel Tschofenig, Michael Hayböck, Manuel Fettner and Stefan Kraft ensured that Olympic champion Austria had a successful dress rehearsal for the World Championships in team jumping.

Behind Germany, Olympic silver medalist Slovenia (1117.7) followed in fourth place with a clear gap.

In individual jumping we should at least finish in the top 10 with two people.” Horngacher demanded: “We have to keep calm now and work on the things that we have analyzed.”
