As we all know, the wind does what it wants.

This is also the case this week in the Allgäu.

The World Cup jumpers were actually supposed to make their first attempts at flying on the

Heini-Klopfer flying hill in Oberstdorf

on Thursday, but the weather put a damper on the organizers' plans.

Ski jumping in the live ticker: Weather causes cancellations and format changes

Both the first training session and the qualification for the individual jumping on Saturday had to be

canceled due to the strong wind

.

The training, which will consist of two jumps, is now scheduled for Friday from 1 p.m.

The super team flying, which

also takes place on Friday ,

will therefore

be shortened to two rounds

, as the athletes are only allowed to make four jumps per day due to the high level of stress involved in ski flying.

Two athletes per nation

compete in the super team competition

.

After the cancellation of qualification on Thursday, who these two jumpers will be on the German team will only be decided at short notice on Friday.

However, it is very likely that

Andreas Wellinger

will be selected.

National coach Stefan Horngacher will decide who will compete at his side after training early on Friday afternoon.

Ski jumping in the live ticker: three-way fight expected - Norway as the secret favorite

The German team's biggest competitors are the teams from

Austria

and

Slovenia

.

They also stayed ahead of the DSV selection at the Ski Flying World Championships in Bad Mitterndorf almost a month ago.

Slovenia won gold, Austria took silver.

However, the World Cup jumping was held in the old format with

four jumpers per nation

.

But the

Norwegian team

is always good for a podium finish in team competitions.

The last time this format was held in Lake Placid, but on a large hill, the Norwegians secured

third place behind

Austria

and

Germany .

So everything is set up for an exciting competition.

The competitions in Oberstdorf are part of the World Cup for the 2023/24 season.

The results of the competitions in the World Cup calendar are included in the overall ranking and the national ranking.
