At the end of the FIS Junior World Championships in Zakopane, a mixed competition in ski jumping was held. As in the men's team competition at the Średnia Krokiew, Austria's athletes, Vanessa Moharitsch, Daniel Tschofenig, Julia Muehlbacher and David Haagen, were unbeatable. The silver medals were won by the national team of Slovenia, and the Norwegian team ended up in third place. The Polish national team did not advance to the final round and finished in 9th place. The Austrian team won the medal and points classification in ski jumping and nordic combined MARC HODLER TROPHY FIS at the Junior World Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined Championships Zakopane 2022.

After the first round, the Austrian team was in the lead (448.4 points), with a safe advantage of 41.0 points over Slovenia. The sensational third place was taken by the French team (383.8 points), although their advantage over fourth Japan was only 0.8 points, and over fifth Norway - 1 point. The athletes from Germany were sixth (376.4 points).

In the second round, the athletes of Austria were constantly in control of the situation and without any problems won the fourth gold medal for their country in Zakopane, finishing the competition with the achievements of 884.4 points. The vice-championship of the Slovenian team was not threatened for a moment as well (819 points), while the teams from Norway, Japan, France and Germany competed for the bronze medal until the very end. Finally, the Scandinavians stood on the lowest step of the podium today.

Daniel Tschofenig: “That’s absolutely amazing feeling to have three gold medals from Junior World Championships. I knew I am able to jump good and I knew what I am able to show. Going home with three gold medals is absolutely amazing and looks a bit crazy. I think it couldn’t be better for me in any way. I hope I will continue with this form now”.

Marcel Strzinar: “It feels amazing. For me and Maksim its first medal ever from Junior World Championships, so I couldn’t be more happy. I’m not satisfied with my performance today, I am a little bit exhausted, but all in all we were good as a team, so we can be happy”.

Iver Olaussen: “It’s amazing. I didn’t think before the competition that we will take it, but we had a chance to be on the podium, because everyone jumped great. I think we did really great today. The Championships was amazing and the hill and the atmosphere was awesome. It was the best competition I have been so far”.

Austrian Daniel Tschofenig leaves Zakopane with three gold medals - from the individual, team and mixed competition. Among women, the biggest star was the Slovenian Nika Prevc - world champion individually and in teams, and a silver medalist in the mixed competition. Three medals (gold individually and bronze in team and mixed competitions) were also won by the Austrian Nordic combined skier, Stefan Rettenegger.
