Approaching the targetFriday, 20th February 2015

10.30 Start this beautiful morning with the intention of jumping Rounds 5 and 6 back to back - short break then into the Final Round of Individual Accuracy..

By 12.30 we were at the end of the 6th round.  We await the official results for the teams and the names of those who will go forward into the Individual final.

At the end of round 5 Germany was still in first place, with Russia 11 cents behind and Slovenia in third place.

The picure on the left shows the approach to the target from a competitor's point of view - thanks to Henny Wiiggers, Netherlands.

Germany is about to jump their 6th round - Germany jumped and consolidated their first place - which is really a nice thing for the home Nation.  Russia held their second place with Slovenia third.  It has been a good competition in excellent conditions.  At 13.50 we will go into the final round for the Individual positions, with 9 men and 4 female jumpers.

The German TV (Bavaria TV) are here today filming the finals.  It was interesting to watch them on the slope - but they soon got the hang of what they needed to film.

Day 3 early morning

Thurdsday 19th February, 2015

As competitors arrive for the first run of the ski race they are greeted by sparkling snow and sunshine, no sign of yesterday's foggy conditions.

By 11.10 the last skier crossed the finish line and after a short break we will move to the second run to complete the skiing part of the Para-Ski competition.  12.10 for the start of the second run.

There were a few disappointments on the first.run but the results are - Female in 1st place after that run :  Magdelena Schwertl, Austria, with a time of 56.50  : 2nd Christine Franz, Switzerland with a time of 58.48 and : 3rd Ekaterina Nevskaya, Russia with a time of  58.79.

Ksenia Trofimova, Russia was disqualified after the first run, as she did not make the finish - fortunately she did not sustain an injury - unfortunately the same cannot be said for Mathias Islee, Switzerland who injured his knee badly on the qualifying run and is out of the competition.  We wish him a speedy recovery.
