The 2023/24 World Cup in ski jumping continued on Friday.

The super team flying took place in Oberstdorf, Bavaria.

The German team clearly missed out on a podium place.

Oberstdorf - The ski jumping World Cup circus has arrived back in Germany, more precisely in Oberstdorf, after its little trip around the world.

Super team flying

was on the program there on Friday at the Heini-Klopfer flying hill


The German team was unable to keep up with the world leaders when the Slovenians won.

Andreas Wellinger


Pius Paschke

were unable to intervene in the fight for the podium places

at the start of the ski flying weekend in

Oberstdorf .

The 28-year-old Wellinger and Paschke, who is five years older, took sixth place

in the super team competition on Friday


Ski jumping on Friday: Germany very weak - Slovenia dominates the competition

The Slovenian duo Timi Zajc


Domen Prevc

secured victory on the Heini-Klopfer ski flying hill


Second place went to

Johann André Forfang


Kristoffer Eriksen Sundal

from Norway ahead of the two Austrians

Stefan Kraft


Michael Hayböck

, who achieved the longest flight of the competition with a jump of 235 meters.

The German team, on the other hand, was miles away from the world's best today.

Although Wellinger initially flew to a good

230.5 meters

, he only managed

206.5 meters

in his second attempt .

Clearly not enough to keep up with the competition.

Paschke also had a weaker flight at

206.5 meters

, but his second jump was at least solid at

223.5 meters


Ski jumping in Oberstdorf: Changed format - Karl Geiger still left out

Karl Geiger

, 2020 ski flying world champion, is currently in a

slump in form

and was not named to the two-man team.

The Oberstdorfer followed the events in his homeland as a spectator and, alongside ski jumping legend

Jens Weißflog,

cheered along with his teammates.

Normally in the Super Team

each athlete jumps three times


However, strong and changing winds in the Allgäu had disrupted the competition plan.

Contrary to plan,

no training

could take place on Thursday.

The two training jumps were postponed to Friday and the competition was postponed

two instead of three flights per athlete shortened.

When it comes to ski flying, the regulations only

allow four flights per athlete on the same day

884.5 points

Ski jumping in Oberstdorf: Super team flying in the live ticker


: The first day of competition here in Oberstdorf ends with a disappointing result for the German jumpers.

The German duo, consisting of Pius Paschke and Andreas Wellinger, could not keep up with the world leaders today.

The Slovenians secure a deserved victory.

2nd round

: Will Domen Prevc hold his nerve and bring home the victory here?


It wobbles a bit in the air, but then flies to 229 meters.

This means that Slovenia wins here in Oberstdorf ahead of the Norwegians and the Austrian team.

2nd round

: Two jumpers are still up.

The first of these is Johann Andre Forfang.

The Norwegian flies to 228.5 meters, securing at least second place for his team.

2nd round

: Can Aleksander Zniszczol secure the podium for Poland here?

No, he can't.

He only reaches 212 meters.

This means that the Poles are falling behind Austria and Japan.

2nd round

: And Stefan Kraft also does a really good job here.

In very difficult conditions he also reached 218.5 meters, putting the Austrians back in the lead.

2nd round

: Germany now has to hope for mistakes from the competition.

Ryoyu Kobayashi is not doing the DSV this favor.

The Japanese manages 218.5 meters.

This means his team remains ahead of Germany.

2nd round

: Now it's Andreas Wellinger's turn.

He needs an absolute top jump to attack the podium here.

His 206.5 meters might not be enough, even if the conditions are no longer as good as in the first round.

2nd round

: Now Giovanni Bresadola comes for the Italian team.

He cannot maintain his team's seventh place finish.

With 191 meters, Italy falls behind the USA.

It is 198 meters for the American.

They stay ahead of the Finns and Switzerland.

: Now Kytosaho can go.

He jumps to 195 meters.

This means that Finland is once again overtaking Switzerland.

2nd round

: It's now Team Finland's turn with Niko Kytosaho.

However, he has to get off the beam again.

The wind has changed, there is a tailwind.

That's why we're now going up two hatches again.

Switzerland follows Ukraine.

It reaches 199 meters.

However, the French are already well behind the other teams.

2nd round

: At the request of his coach, Timi Zajc now goes down another hatch and that was the right decision.

It's 233.5 meters for Zajc, with one more gate that would have been dangerous.

Slovenia remains ahead here and is still expanding its lead.

2nd round

: Two athletes from the first group are still at the top.

Kristoffer Eriksen Sundal is the first to go off the beam and flies to 223 meters.

This means the Norwegians lose a lot of points.

: Now it's Piotr Zyla's turn and he also stays ahead of the German team.

Zyla lands after 227.5 meters and puts Poland in the lead.

Japan falls behind Austria but remains ahead of Germany.

2nd round

: Michael Hayböck now has to get off the beam again.

This means that the Austrians are overtaking Germany again.

2nd round

: Now it's Pius Paschke's turn.

Can he show a better jump here than in the first round?

Yes, it can, and even with a run-up shortened by two hatches.

It's 223.5 meters for the man from WSV Kiefersfelden.

Germany takes the lead.

Italy takes the lead.

Tate Frantz has 215.5 meters.

The USA comes in second place.

2nd round

: The Frenchman is now followed by Gregor Deschwanden for Switzerland, who jumps to 201.5 meters and thus takes the lead for the time being.

Vitaliy Kalinichenko can't jump there.

It is only 185.5 meters.

Stefan Kraft flies to 233 meters.

This means they are fifth after the first round.

So Slovenia wins the first round.

1st round

: And Andreas Wellinger also comes down really well here and brings Germany close again.

It's 230.5 meters for him, but he also stumbles when he runs out.

It's fifth place, but they're getting closer again.

1st round

Remo Imhof from Switzerland causes a brief outcry in the stadium when he stumbles on the run-out but stays standing.

His jump of 186 meters puts Switzerland in fifth place.

1st round

: Erik Belshaw also starts with the wrong start number.

He shows a very strong jump of 213.5 meters and puts his team in the lead.

However, he has to give this right back to the Finns, because Niko Kytosaho jumps to 211 meters and, thanks to the lead from the first group, passes the US boys again.

1st round

: First in the second group is Valentin Foubert from France.

He jumps to 204 meters.

He is followed by Yevhen Marusiak for Ukraine.

With his 203.5 meters he brings his team past the French again.

This is fifth place.

So the first group is already through here.

Ski jumping on Friday: The preliminary report on super team flying

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 Oberstdorf: 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.

is always good for a podium finish in team competitions.

third place behind



Germany .

So everything is set up for an exciting competition.
