Dmytro Demianiuk, unfortunately, was the first who left the sector, he disobeyed starting 219 see Here is how Dmitry commented on his failure in the finals: “hot pursuit is hard to pinpoint. Probably due to the fact that neither in qualifying nor in the final did not make a sufficient number of trial jumps. Still worried about the foot, not fully recovered from injury. And if in the qualification I still rosstreas, the final initial height was higher, and only in the third attempt I caught the jump – jumped to stock, but too close pushed. I had to work with the runway.
I have the following formula: or make a large number of trial jumps, and I do not have at high altitudes, or do small, and then you need rasstraivatsya during the competition. The less you do, the better you will feel. You need to think how things work and how to get out of this situation. Although he reached the final, successful performance is not considered. Can not be realized, although the physical condition I have a gorgeous”.
