ENGELBERG (Dagbladet): Apart from Johann André Blame - who came in fourth place - provided the norwegians mixed the drops in Engelberg in Switzerland on Saturday afternoon.
the German Karl Geiger won ahead of Piotr Zyla (Poland) and Daniel Huber (Austria). Halvor Is Granerud was number 16, Robert Johansson 17, Anders Fannemel 24 and Andreas Star 30.
Even better result might have been at Blame if sportssjef Clas Brede Bråthen had gotten what he wanted. He thinks the others jumped and stilkarakterene to Tromsø-the hopper does not hang on the bit as compared with a couple of rivals in front of him.Blame two tenths from the podium
Johanns sistehopp was very, very good. In my opinion deserved his second place. But it is an old disc that I and stildommerne don't agree, " says Bråthen of the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet on the plain in Engelberg.See the little
Blame was rewarded with twice 18,5 and three times 19. Even realize he is not how he could get down of 18.5-century with jumped her.
I think I was quiet and nice in the air. I jumped down to the hill size, set a steady swoop and ran out without excesses. Then, there is not much to draw. When judges lands of 18.5, I am unable to justify it, says Blame.
About the race as a whole, he points out:
It was shared out very weird characters to jump that didn't deserve it. We can see this so often now, that I'm starting to get a little bored.
Up to polakken Zyla in second place was the poor two points. Bråthen believe this went away in stildømmingen.
- I do not say that Johann was badly paid. But I think some of the others got insane well paid. Sistehoppet his was terribly solid. It shows that he has the capacity to go to the top, " says Bråthen about the leap of 138 metres.KEEPS HIGH LEVEL: Johann André Blame was the best Norwegian in fourth place.

- A couple of them in front of the Johann got to high stilkarakterer compared with what he got. He did, in my opinion, a jump to 19 in style. This I thought when I saw it live, and I believe it when I see it in the replay. Others, again, who got 18 and 18,5 was not in the vicinity of this.
- do you Think hoppernes name and nation has something to say to the judges?
- Name, location, how far you jump, what you called and what numbers you have to influence the judges. But it is certainly natural. They are just humans they also.
- We discuss this often. But it helps so little when we once again end up in situations where we lose it. I'm not saying that I always sit on the numbers. And I'm the first to admit that I am subjective. But I believe that I in all my subjectivity can argue quite justifiable for it.
Norwegian Geir Steinar Loeng was among the two judges who gave 18,5 to Forfangs other jumps. About the character he says to Dagbladet:
I mean I gave what I felt the jump was worth. It is hard to take it on the swing, but I judge always from what I see.
Judges who frequently depart from the other, may experience to be banned. Bråthen believe there should be a system where judges are evaluated based on what actually is right, rather than deviations from other judges.Happy
Blame it was all in all happy with the fourth position. In verdenscupsammendraget leapt he up a space and now share third place with Kamil Stoch from Poland. Japanese Ryoyu Kobayashi head in front of the polakken Piotr Zyla.Suddenly came hoppsensasjonen with a betroelse to the Norwegian
Blame smiled several times when he left the ground together with hoppernes in charge of communications, Steinar Bjerkmann, in the evening:
- I tangerte my best location in Engelberg. It is approved after that I jumped begredelig on training, " he says.
I lacked a little confidence after the training. And it may well be that I missed by a few metres in the only faith. That it still ended like it did, is a nice confirmation before it is to happen next.
Sunday is the new race in Engelberg. Then waiting Hoppuka in Germany and Austria.
