    But I think you’re right; German skies were poor and Rydzek flopped terribly which means that Frenzel had to catch up rather than skiing away from Schmid
    How popular is Nordic Combined in Germany though? @whiteshoes
    Hmm, the most popular wintersports in Germany are certainly Biathlon and Ski jumping... followed by Alpine Skiing. But I guess on fourth place there would be Nordic Combined already... at least the nordic combined events are among those which are priorized by the broadcasters and they usually show them live. Whereas they would only show summaries of the Snowboard or Ice Skating events, for example.

    and, by the way, finally our 6th golden medal (as expected) in the mixed ski jumping team event Motivated by their home crowd Austria was throughout impressive, thats why it was tight until the last round. But in the end we were the most balanced team and the only one with 4 world-class athletes. Just like two years ago we have won 6 golden medals.. however, back then we won 4 events in NoCo and only two in Ski jumping and this time it was the other way around

    Apart of the second ski jumping individual event (that was not regular, imo) this were great world championsships. Great to see our favorite neighbours from the south failing to win a golden medal in their own country

    Only realized there is a Winter Sports thread now
    Hope Vittozzi or Wierer take gold today but think Dahlmeier prepared these World Championships really well so she is the big contender.. Roeiseland seems to be skiing really well. And we have to include Kuzmina and Makarainen too!
    My dark horses are Oeberg Davidova and Fialkova...

    Hopefully she can succeed in the individual
