Peter Prevc tops qualifying for Four Hills at Oberstdorf
Peter Prevc‘s 136.5m jump at the Four Hills Ski Jumping World Cup event in Oberstdorf, Germany, saw him top the list of qualifiers.
Severin Freund was second after a 134.5m effort.
"The first day went pretty well for me, I had two good jumps," said Prevc.
"Tomorrow I hope that Severin and I won't fall. There are many things, that can decide the 4-Hills-Tournament.
"Every jump counts and there are a lot of favourites. I feel the pressure, but this helps me to focus."
Last season's overall World Cup winner Freund talked up his hopes of being the first German 4-Hills winner since 2002.
"I think it would be a brave guess to predict who's the favourite after one jump on a day like this," he said.
"I have to show two good jumps tomorrow. Today I was pretty close. And then you also need some luck. I think that tomorrow's result won't be decisive."
