Final day in Rasnov: solid day for Ingvild, tough round for Kjersti

After an outstanding performance on Saturday, Heidi Dyhre Traaserud tried her best to match that performance on Sunday. But it was the Hopplandslaget rookie Ingvild Synnøve Midtskogen who had the highest finish for the Norwegians.

Saturday was a very solid day for the four girls who competed on the HS97 hill in Rasnov. With a career high sixth place, it became a special day for Heidi Dyhre Traaserud. But on Sunday it was Ingvild Synnøve Midtskogen who was the one with the highest finish.

Solid form continues

The talented Hopplandslaget rookie, Ingvild Synnøve Midtskogen, has shown some good form this summer, winning a competition in the Inter-Continental Cup. This weekend, the 15 year old, kept it going.

In round one, Ingvild jumped to 85 meters, which was good for a fourteenth place after the round. In the second round, although her jump was shorter, as she landed after jumping 83.5 meters, Ingvild climbed up the ranking and ended the competition on place twelve, overtaking her friend and teammate Kjersti Græsli.

Heartbreaking round for Kjersti

Jumping 90 meters on the K90, Kjersti set the tone for the first round. She led the pack until she was overtaken by yesterday's number twos, Nozomi Maruyama and Ema Klinec and finished the round as ninth. Unfortunately round two was heartbreaking for the young talent. Having the worst conditions, Kjersti jumped short and landed after 77 meters. She dropped five places and finished as fourteenth, still a solid result.

Yesterday's revelation, Heidi Dyhre Traaserud, who on Saturday finished with a career high sixth place, was struggling a bit today. In round one, she managed to jump to a distance of 83 meters, landing her on the nineteenth spot. In the second round, Heidi jumped 81.5 meters, which gained her two spots to get to the seventeenth place finish.

The weekend in Rasnov remained a learning process for the fourth girl, Nora Midtsundstad. In round one she landed after jumping 76.5 meters, while getting to 74.5 meters in the second round. Nora finished the competition on the twenty eight place.

One left

For the sixth time this summer, Nika Kriznar has been unbeatable. The Slovenian took the win in front of her teammates Ema Klinec and Nika Prevc.

Because the Austrians decided to host a men's only competition next weekend, the women have just one stop left in this Summer Grand Prix cycle. On the HS140 in Klingenthal, there is one individual and one mixed team competition scheduled. There is a very high probability the Hopplandslaget superstars will attend this competition.
