In January 2019 in Lathi the young talents of Nordic combination were fighting for gold, silver and bronze at the Nordic Ski Junior World Championship. Our JumpandReach athletes Dominik Terzer and Johanes Lamparter took part in the world championship the second time and not success less!
After winning the second place in weight lifting the third time, Johannes Lamparter again is celebrating a three times victory: He returns at home with one gold, one silver and one bronze medal in his baggage. On the first day of competition he achieved the second place with a constant jump and a good performance on the cross-country ski run over 5km. Just 5 seconds behind the first place victory. Two days later he won – together with Florian Dagn, Max Teeling and Marc-Luis Rainer – the bronze medal in team. But his personal highlight has not even happened yet: On the last day of competition the single competition over 10km took place. After a good jumping performance the young Tyrolian started the cross-country ski run with just 9 seconds behind the first-placed. Two kilometres before the finish, Johannes Lamparter was able to gain distance on the others and sprinted for gold. Dominik Terzer had to fight a little bit more during the competitions. Nevertheless he gained the 10th place over 5km cross-country ski run previous to Florian Dagn and Max Teeling.
Johannes Lamparter: “Everything went pretty well for me this world championship, I was able to plan the runs very well and also my jumping was constant and solid. Standing on the top and hearing the Austrian national anthem was one of the most beautiful moments in my current athlete’s career. All in all there were unique and special moments and emotions in this world championship in Lathi, which I take with me beside the medals.”
