Nika Križnar makes podium in Ljubno Ski Jumping World Cup event


Jumping 93 and 89 metres (254.8 points) for her 30 career victory, Lundby narrowed her lag behind the overall World Cup leader Chiara Hölzl of Austria to a mere 26 points. Hölzl placed 7th today.

"I like the hill, it's difficult to manage, so I'm very happy to have jumped well twice and celebrate victory on this lovely weekend," commented Lundy on her fourth career win in Ljubno. She placed third with team Norway here on Saturday.

Pinkelnig jumped 92 and 89 metres (252.7 points). She is third in the overall World Cup standings, 127 points behind the leader.

With jumps of 91.5 and 91 metres (250 points), Nika Križnar secured her first podium this season to the enthusiasm of home supporters in Ljubno. She has advanced to 8th overall.

Her compatriot Ema Klinec (242.3) finished 6th after placing third in the first series.

Klinec and Križnar were part of the quartet that secured the second spot for Slovenia in Saturday's team event in Ljubno.

"I can say this is my favourite hill this season as everything fell into place. My jumps were top considering I haven't done that well throughout the season," said Križnar.
