On Saturday, Daniel Huber came in second in Nizhny Tagil and achieved his best result to date in the Ski Jumping World Cup. After flights of 131 and 133 meters, the Salzburg man was 14.3 points behind the Norwegian Halvor Egner Granerud (132.5 / 132), who celebrated his second victory. The German half-time leader Markus Eisenbichler fell back to 28th place after a jump that was completely unsuccessful due to gusts of wind.

Two other Austrians achieved their best positions so far. The 27-year-old Tyrolean Thomas Lackner was fourth in his second World Cup competition behind the Norwegian Robert Johansson (hill record of 142.5 m in the final), while the 28-year-old Upper Austrian Markus Schiffner was tenth. Huber was the only member of the first ÖSV training group at the start. Four jumpers, including World Cup winner Stefan Kraft, had to pass because of a corona infection, as in Ruka.
