To conclude the 2018/19 ski season, the Nordic Combined Awards took place on the last evening of the season to celebrate the athletes’ performances. This year, the ceremony was held at Schonach’s Haus des Gastes. The night kicked off with an awesome performance by the athlete band, which included Austrian skier Bernard Gruber and Finnish Nordic skier Ilkka Herola.
Norwegian Jarl Magnus Riiber won his tenth World Cup victory this season, beating out Finland’s IIkka Herola in Klingenthal by 0.5 seconds. The race, which was held on Sunday, still went underway, despite snowy and stormy weather conditions. However, jumping was not possible in these conditions, which meant Friday’s (February 1st) provisional competition jumps had to be used instead).
