Three wins for Weber in Ruka (FIN)
Due to the wind conditions, the second Ski Jumping part, originally planned for Saturday morning, had to be postponed, instead a Mass Start was held again.
As on Friday, Aaron Kostner won the 10 km race, followed by Marc Luis Rainer from Austria and the previous day’s winner Weber.
The following Ski Jumping round took place on Sunday morning.
With another strong performance on the HS142, Weber, who celebrated his maiden World Cup victory in Ruka in December 2021, showed the furthest jump of the day.
131 meters brought him the second victory ahead of the Austrians Christian Deuschl (128 m) and Florian Kolb (118 m).
