Severin Freund wins on home soil

Local favourite Severin Freund held his nerve to clinch a World Cup ski jump event in Willingen on Sunday.

The 26-year-old cleared 149.5 metres for the day’s longest jump with his first effort and then 146 with his second to secure the win ahead of Norway’s Rune Velta.

Roman Koudelka of the Czech Republic completed the podium while Stefan Kraft finished sixth to maintain his overall lead.
