SEEFELD (Dagbladet): Jan Schmid went to the world CHAMPIONSHIPS-a silver in the combined.
It feels good. I thought that I had to shake off me as many as possible before tomorrow's. I felt completely raw today, and was hoping for a little more speed in the slot, " says Schmid to NRK.
- It is fantastic. Jan (Schmid) makes a wonderful ski jumping and there is no coincidence in what he does. He staked everything on one card before the season, and he succeeded today, " says kombinertsjef Ivar Stuan.TOP THREE: Jan Schmid (left) was a happy man on the podium afterwards.

Jarl Magnus Riiber was in advance the great hope from Norway before the current world cup competition combined. But the Oslo-boy delivered medium jumping, and lying on the 10. place before langrennet in Seefeld.
Up to Eric Frenzel in the first place, it was 59 seconds. Even brighter was the situation of Schmid, who was in third place after the hop - ten seconds behind the German, Frenzel. The starting point was, in other words okay, but most people tipped that this would go Frenzels way.
Still formed quickly a group with the first four from the ski jumping competition, including Schmid, who was also up and went.
at the same time went Riiber styggfort behind. Already after three kilometers, he had taken back half of its lead. This was buttoned to 18 seconds for six kilometers.
But so began the lead to go fast. Schmid was with. Finally he had to give way to Frenzel, who won, with Schmid finishing in second place. Franz-Josef Rehrl from Austria took the biggest.
It is the insane raw. He has built the season around to succeed in these days here, and the fact that he does it is completely raw. I don't think there are many people who had managed to make it in the same way, " says teammate Espen Bjørnstad.
- He has lain three weeks alone in St. Moritz before we came here, been a little sick, and everything has not only gone of the rails. Yet he manages this. Awesome.HAPPY: Jan Schmid came in second place, behind German Eric Frenzel. Here, they give each other a hug after the finish. PHOTO: BJØRN LANGSEM Show more
Riiber had to settle for fifth place.
- Frenzel was the best. What I realized midway through the race. I have been sick before and felt totally awesome today. I got out what I could of the day, " says Schmid.
Jarl Magnus Riiber needed some time for himself and his family after the fifth. After the ski jumping competition presented Jan-Erik Aalbu - former sportssjef for kombiert and jumps - that Riiber "could only throw hoppdressen right in the garbage". He believed it did not give any lift.
About the suit says Riiber:
the Suit I jumped with was sewn right before we went here. It is quite new. We tested it a bit before we left. We got a confirmation that the suit we asked, was a notch better than the former. But, clearly - when things butter the opposite - you need to always be in the she.
Winner Eric Frenzel says:
