Mind you: not after he had accepted the 5,000 euro check for the day’s best in qualification, but before.
<<< Overall rating Four-hill tour >>>
On Sunday he has a two meter lead over the German Karl Geiger and the experience of jumping well for the first time in the Tyrolean capital. He has not got beyond 21st place in the competition so far.
“ Halvor can best adjust to the different hills. He has the coolness to pull it off,” said the Tyrolean Stöckl, also knowing that the disruptive factors in the 69th edition, which was held without spectators due to the corona, are less than usual.
Before this season, Granerud was reduced to a video that had been clicked a million times on the Internet in many places: He was the guy who jumped naked from a hill in Oslo and had himself filmed while doing so.
“ He is in great shape, it is a pleasure to watch him. The best there is currently,” said Kraft. For the last Austrian tour winner so far (2014/15) it will very likely amount to the eleventh victory of a Norwegian.
Strength from the usual training “miles away”
He himself is just experiencing how sensitive ski jumping is on his own body. A few squats like in the past are not enough to feel the hill.
“The last time I attacked a barbell was a month ago. I am miles away from the usual training that I usually do,” said Kraft, who was slowed down by Corona in the run-up to the tour and then by apparently protracted back problems.
If Kraft’s problems are of a physical nature, Granerud could soon add completely different – mental – strains and the pressing question for yourself: Are four normal jumps enough for an exceptional result?
