Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

Austria took gold in the men’s individual ski jumping at Lausanne 2020, denying Slovenia their third consecutive YOG gold medal in the event.

But it was a close-run thing at the Les Tuffes Nordic Centre on Sunday with Marco Woergoetter beating Mark Hafnar by just 10.6 points after two jumps to snatch victory.

Woergoetter has already racked up five wins this season on the Alpen Cup circuit – a senior development series run by the International Ski Federation (FIS). He had even more to celebrate – his roommate and Austrian compatriot David Haagen won bronze.

It was a particularly poignant moment for Haagen, whose father died two weeks ago. His mother and brothers arrive in Lausanne on Tuesday to support him in the Nordic combined mixed team event.
