Ruka ski jumping 2021. Stefan Kraft and the hill record in Ruce [WIDEO] – World Cup

Live Ski Jumping World Cup on TVN, Eurosport and Eurosport in Player

There was a team competition on Rukatunturi that night. Kraft, the leader of the Austrians, did everything to put his colleagues on the podium. His first jump was perfect – 138 meters.

He was landing far behind the hill size

However, he showed his full skills and true craftsmanship in the second. His team was losing distance from the rivals, so he went all the way – he boomed an imaginative 147.5 m, landing far behind the hill size (142 m) and breaking the facility record.

What’s more, he finished everything with an impeccable telemark. Such jumps can be watched endlessly.

In the end, Kraft’s individual performances (the best total score) did not help the Austrians. They finished fourth behind the Norwegians, Germany and the Japanese. The Poles took sixth place then, and Maciej Kot was the best in their ranks.

It seemed that Kraft’s record would last for many years. Indeed, Kraft is still the record holder, but its result in the following seasons was evened out by Ryoyu Kobayashi (2018), Karl Geiger (2019) and the Norwegian combine Johannes Lamparter (2020).

A chance for new records from Friday.
