The double is perfect: After his title on the normal hill, Daniel Huber is now also the new Austrian champion on the large hill. Two years after his first Austrian Championship title in Bischofshofen, Huber won gold on the Innsbruck Bergisel ski jump with 126.5 and 127 meters and 254.5 points. There was a second double for Jan Hörl, who finished second again less than 24 hours after yesterday’s silver medal with 122 and 128 meters and 243.9 points. Bronze went to Stefan Kraft, who got 123 and 124.5 meters and 240.5 points.
In the women’s category, the title went to Eva Pinkelnig. The silver medalist in the normal hill individual jumped 120.5 and 117.5 meters and scored 220.5 points, which earned her the fourth gold medal at the Austrian state championships. Silver went to Daniela Iraschko-Stolz (113 and 119.5m; 205.1 p.), Who surprisingly went to the start, even though she had not started on Saturday. Sophie Sorschag secured bronze with 110.5 and 113.5 meters and 179.3 meters.
