Olympics 2022 | Ski jumping: Hannawald on the chances of the DSV-Adler


Share post:

On Sunday at 12 noon the ski jumpers will have their first decision at the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing. Then it comes to the showdown on the normal hill, where the DSV-Adler calculate a lot. Especially Karl Geiger. Ski jumping expert Sven Hannawald also believes that the leader of the overall World Cup is capable of the big gold coup.

“I remember a World Cup weekend in Predazzo on the small hill, where Karl won twice. If he really uses his levers so well and hits everything with his strength, then of course he’s a great candidate,” said Hannawald “ntv”.

“From everything around it and especially the situation in Beijing, I really see Karl as the one who can breathe the most away,” explained Hannawald.

But Geiger’s team and roommate Markus Eisenbichler also has the Four Hills Tournament winner from 2002 on the bill: “Of course Markus is one of them, but he’s one, when he gets up in the morning everything has to fit together. If that fits, he can deliver competitions, similar to the 2019 World Championships in Seefeld and Innsbruck, where he also became world champion on the large hill.”

Hannawald criticizes the allocation of the Winter Olympics

The ARD TV expert is only worried about the ski jumps in Beijing. “You don’t yet have any experience of how the hill is and what the conditions are like there. In addition, of course, the wind also plays a bigger role, since the field is growing together more and more and small things can make a big difference. But for me, Karl is the favourite , as far as the German team is concerned.”

Sven Hannawald not only commented on the medal chances of the DSV-Adler, but also did not shy away from criticism of the IOC: “I saw a documentary and after this I would not rule out that we will see the Olympic Winter Games in Qatar or somewhere else at some point”. , said the 47-year-old and added: “I think it’s all going in the monetary direction. And the normal European and Scandinavian countries see that and then just say no to the Winter Games.”
