With a second-round jump of 245.5 metres, Lindvik could frolic with glee at the famous Planica hill.
“It’s downright insane, damn nudge and mood,” says Rælingen jumper to TV3 after the victory.
– Planica’s song has been on every jump in the second round here. Totally crazy, says Lindvik committed.
It’s been four years and 16 races since a Norwegian last won an individual snowboarding event at the World Cup.
touch the teeth
It was a day Lindvik will soon forget. For not enough to win: The 23-year-old set a personal record of 245.5 metres.
– now I’m happy. Now it’s adrenaline and joy, he says about his achievements.
Lindvik could look back on a season that included, among other things, a single Olympic gold and a World Cup gold along with four World Cup victories.
– It’s been a totally crazy season. You have achieved more than half of the goals you set in the five-year period. He says I am bringing a lot of good experience in the future.
Daniel Andre Tandy was touched to see his teammate win the jump race on Sunday. Almost one year later Teeth fell out unsightly and she fell into an artificial coma in the same hill.
– That was sick. I think it’s one of the toughest laps I’ve ever been allowed to see while flying the skis, Tandy told NRK after the race. Tande himself chose not to jump at Planica, but he was present and enjoyed the famous atmosphere.
Overall pallet space
The 23-year-old also finished third overall in the World Cup, ahead of Halvor Egner Granerud. Japan’s Ryoyu Kobayashi became the best jumper at the World Cup.
After the first round everything was ready for a Rælingen jumper victory. With 226 points and the longest jump of 241.5 metres, Norway was leading before the second round.
– It felt good. I felt like I was picking up where I left off yesterday. We’ll see if it lasts, so it’s just a matter of sticking with another tour,” Marius Lindvik told NRK.
The 23-year-old, this season’s Olympic and World Cup gold medalist, is 5.2 points ahead of Slovenian Ziga Gellar and 6.1 points ahead of Poland by Pyotr Zilla.
“It’s a beautiful, powerful ski jump,” Jacobsen said of Lindvik’s first.
Resist Furfang and Granrod
Halvor Aigner Granrod was disappointed in his first jump of 226 metres, but hit back hard in his second and jumped his third longest at 243.5 metres. A violent roar of joy came from Altaïr’s camp. In the end, it took twelfth place.
– It was a nice jump. In the end, I lost out for 3rd overall in style this weekend here which is of course embarrassing. Anyway, I’ll try to be proud of what I got this weekend.
Johann Andre Furfang also had a weak first jump, but like his teammate, the jumper from Tromsø also responded with force. 237 meters was a great way to finish the season despite his 16th place finish.
Japan’s Yukiya Sato finished second behind Lindvik, while Slovenian Petr Breivik finished last on the podium.
