Gold

Marita Kramer jumps to gold in Lillehammer to secure her second World Cup victory of the ski jumping season

Marita Kramer regained the yellow bib with her second World Cup victory of the ski jumping season in Lillehammer.

The Austrian finished second in the HS98 event on Saturday and went one better 24 hours later, claiming the HS140 gold ahead of Germany’s Katharina Althaus and Norway’s Silje Opseth.

Kramer’s first-round jump of 138 metres was comfortably further than any of her rivals and a 134.5-metre effort in round two was enough to secure her first gold since the opening round in Nizhny Tagil.
