The wind forces to cancel the final phase in Innsbruck

No match in Innsbruck. Thus can be summarized the Final phase of the Four Springboards in Innsbruck scheduled for today, as the gusts of wind forced the judges to make the decision to suspend the test. With winds exceeding 10 km / h, the jumpers’ safety was seriously compromised, so there was no choice but to cancel a final phase in which Ryoyu Kobayashi started as a big favorite after his first place in qualifying last Monday.

The weather forecasts were no better for the remainder of the day, so at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, the tournament organization made the cancellation official. Looking ahead to this Wednesday, if the wind does not play a trick again, the competition moves to Bichofshofen, an Austrian town that is a couple of hours from Innsbruck and where the Four Trampolines traditionally ends. So what was seen in the qualifying in Innsbruck is useless, since on the 5th everything will start again: qualifying at 1:00 p.m. and competition at 4:30 p.m. A final sprint to balance logistics that also modifies the program scheduled for the 6th with the closing of the contest: qualification at 2:30 p.m. and final phase at 5:30 p.m.

Interestingly, it should be remembered that 14 years ago the Innsbruck test of the Four Trampolines was canceled, which resulted in a 2008 edition that had only three tests. We will see if the wind gives a small truce so that the 4,000 spectators who were to occupy part of the stands in Innsbruck Do not be left with the desire to see a show in what was going to mean the return of the public to the Tournament after a year of absence.
