STA, 9 February 2019 - Germany won the women's team ski jumping team event in Ljubno on Saturday, with the home crowd favourites finishing second ahead of Austria.

The winning team of Carina Vogt, Anna Ruprecht, Juliane Seyfrath and Katharina Althaus just exceeded the 1,000-point mark, with the Slovenians just over 25 points adrift.

"It was great. We're glad we managed to win the second team event," Althaus said after her team won the second team event this season.

For the Slovenians the team silver is the second podium finish in as many days after Urša Bogataj's third place in the individual event yesterday.

The best Slovenian today was Nika Križnar with 91.5 and 93.5 metres, the longest jump of the day.

This raises the prospects of another top result for team Slovenia at the individual event tomorrow, which is expected to attract several thousand fans, just like today's event.

"I'm speechless, I landed two great jumps. I'm really very pleased and can't wait to attack tomorrow," Križnar said.
