World Cup Winter Tour: Convenors' triple win

aLed by surprise winner Terence Weber, the German combined athletes in Rooka, Finland, achieved a furious triple success. The 25-year-old Weber won the first World Cup of his career by 1.2 seconds ahead of veterans Erik Frenzel and Vinzenz Geiger (+2.3 seconds). The trio of national coach Hermann Weinbuch also benefited from the disqualification of Norwegian dominant Jarl Magnus Riber.

Frederick did not get the challenge

The bobsled dominated Francesco Frederick left no doubt about his dominance in the Olympic winter. As in the season opener last week, the record world champion won two at Innsbruck-Igels, but with Thorsten Margis instead of Alexander Schuler. Vice World Champion Johannes Löchner again finished second with Christian Rasp and achieved a double success. Canada’s Justin Cripps completed the podium.

Hennig superhappy

German cross-country skier Katharina Hennig stopped, causing a surprise in Finland. Over ten kilometers in the classic technique, 25-year-old Oberwisenthaler finished third and only lost to two star runners Frida Karlsson (Sweden) and Therese Johag (Norway). “I’m super happy. I wouldn’t have expected this in life,” said Hennig on ZDF. She got on “very well” with the cold, explained Hennig in the halt at minus 16 degrees. “Nobody in the team expected this,” said national coach Peter Schlickenreider.
