Description

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

Austria won the mixed team ski jumping Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) gold at Les Tuffes Nordic Centre in the French Alps.

The Austria team of 16-year-old Lisa Hirner, gold medal winner of the women’s Nordic combined, 17-year-old Stefan Rettenberger, winner of the men’s Nordic combined gold, 15-year-old Julia Muelbacher and 17-year-old men’s individual ski jumping gold medal winner Marco Woergoetter were unsurprisingly hot favourites.

They delivered in style, leading throughout the competition. Their final combined score of 986.4 was 48.4 points better than silver medallist, Japan. The French team picked up the bronze medal on their home soil.

The mixed team ski jumping competition takes place on the normal hill and consists of a trial round and two scored rounds (first and final). 

Participation in the trial round is not mandatory. Teams are composed of one male ski jumper, one female ski jumper and one male Nordic combined athlete, all of whom have already qualified. 

In the team competition there are three groups for both the trial round and the two competition rounds. 

One competitor from each team is entered per group. Female competitors from ski jumping start in the first group, then male competitors from Nordic combined in the second group and then male competitors from ski jumping in the third group.

After the first round, only the top eight teams will continue to the final round. During the final round, the last group will start in reverse order of the team’s rank after the second group. 

The overall score in ski jumping is the sum of points from the two competition rounds (first and final round). The team with the most combined points wins.
