He was really enthusiastic after the first round, “because that was a very difficult trick for me,” Guttle said: “I was very happy to put it there on the first try”. He couldn’t really catch the other moves, “but I’m still very happy because being in the World Cup final is still super good for me.”

Head coach DeMart satisfied despite finishing twelfth

Head coach Michael Dummert was also satisfied. Gütl “flew farther than he thought”, but “he went all-in, that’s what really matters and what matters. A little more practice and then we’ll actually connect to the front instead of adding it.”

In the women’s category, Laurie Bloin (Canada) took the title ahead of New Jolender Zoe Sadowski-Sinot and Miyabi Onitsuka (Japan).

Annika Morgan (Misbach) had already retired in the qualification on Sunday, with Leon Wockensparger (Rosenheim) and Noa Vikterter (Bisofswiesen) also missing the jump in the finals.
