Double win for Slovenian women ski jumpers in Russia


Nizhny Tagil - Slovenian women ski jumpers secured their first ever double victory in the individual World Cup event in Nizhny Tagil, Russia, on Saturday. Ema Klinec won the second event of the season after finishing as the runner-up at the same venue yesterday. Her compatriot Urša Bogataj placed second.

"I was calmer than yesterday. I was also better on the inrun and my jumps were pretty nice," Klinc told FIS TV after her first World Cup win. She is now in the lead in the overall World Cup rankings.

"I'm very happy for this first win. I try to keep the focus and enjoy jumps in every event," said the 23-year-old, for whom this is the 12 career World Cup podium.

With jumps of 92 and 97 metres Klinec scored 235.1 points. Bogataj scored 227 in second and Germany's Katharina Althaus won 225.9 points to finish third.
