With fifth grade, the team met the selection requirements for the World Cup in February in Seefeld. At the Pyeongchang Olympic Games in February of February, Switzerland still lacked performance.
The Swiss Quartet with Andreas Schuler, Gregor Deschwanden, Simon Ammann and Killian Peier showed a decent performance. Nobody stood out, but neither fell. 5th place after half-time could be defended against Slovenia – a few years ago in skiing jumping another great power. The result was honored by the disqualification of Robert Johansson. His suit did not match the rules. The Olympic winners from Norway missed with only three jumpers in the final round.
The battle for today's victory took place between Poland and Germany. The hosts of Piotr Zyla, Jakub Wolny, Dawid Kubacki and Kamil Stoch never let the rebel Germany pass by winning 11.1 points. Last year's Dominic Stoch, whose form was still puzzled, took the wind out of his sail. At the crucial moment he was back.
Austria (3rd) and Japan (4th) were also worlds outside of Switzerland. Asia, for example, received 55 points from Ammann and Co., although they got two crashes on the uneven surface.
On Sunday, the individual competition will take place from 15.00. Schweiser's match for a final qualification (Top 30) will be much more difficult than in jumping.
