Ski jumper Lanišek second in Oslo


Oslo - Slovenia's ski jumper Anže Lanišek placed second with 267.1 points in Sunday's World Cup event in Oslo, Norway, being outperformed only by Norwegian Daniel Andre Tande (271.2 points). Third place went to Stefan Kraft from Austria.

This is the fifth podium result for Lanišek this winter and the eleventh World Cup podium result in his career.

As the best Slovenian ski jumper this season, he is currently seventh in the World Cup standings.

Another Slovenian, Cene Prevc, finished sixth, and Timi Zajc 11th. The other two, Domen Prevc and Žiga Jelar, did not do so well, placing 24th and 28th, respectively.

As the Raw Air tournament in Norway is over, ski-jumpers are moving on to ski flights. Next weekend, they will make a stop at Oberstdorf, while the traditional finale of the season is scheduled for Planica, Slovenia, at the end of the month.
