Venue detailsK-Point: 90 m

The undoubted star of the 1991-92 season was 16-year-old Toni Nieminen of Finland, who entered the Olympics as leader of the World Cup and holder of the prestigious Four Hills Tournament title. His rivals for the Olympic title appeared to come from the strong Austrian team which included world champion Heinz Kuttin, veteran Andreas Felder and 17-year-old Martin Höllwarth. The fourth member of the Austrian quartet was Ernst Vettori. Vettori, a star of the mid eighties had suffered a loss of form which had until he switched to the new V style of jumping.

Höllwarth led after the first round jump with Nieminen and Vettori breathing down his neck in second and third. At 87.5 m Ernst Vettori’s jump was the longest of the second round and propelled him from third to first as neither of his rivals could match the Austria’s leap.
