On todays second day of the FIS Telemark World Cup opening in Hintertux, the 24-year old german Tobias Müller managed to dominate both races in the men’s sprinting race. The ladies went down first the »Gefrorene Wand«, followed by the men. The start was at 2.787 m and the finish at 2.660 m so the vertical drop was 127 m – quite typical for a sprint race. Jump-distance for the men was 25 m, for the ladies 17. Müller won with a total time of 1:30,24 minutes ahead of his german colleague Jonas Schmid (1:30,49) and Stefan Matter from Switzerland (1:30,72). »It was a really cool race today! I am super happy that I ended up first! It was so close between us three winners – exactly how an exciting race is supposed to be«, said the 24-year old German.

In the women’s race Amelie Reymond from Switzerland once again took first place. Today with a total time of 1:40,62 ahead of the Norwegians Mathilde Ilebrekke (1:41,21) and Thea Smedheim Lunde who took third place with a time of 1:50,16: «My first run was really good. In the second one I struggeled with the jump, but well… I am very happy that I still managed to win!«

The weather conditions at the 2.787 m at the Hintertuxer Glacier were again very good – sunny, -5 degree, only sometimes partly cloudy. Plenty of spectators, especially during the lunch time were watching the race while enjoying the view and the food. The race continues tomorrow with the parallel sprint at 9.30 am.
