We have in our bank of statistics such summaries like The Ranking of Luck, thus along with those previous analyzes let us present today another piece of statistical info, this time concerning the wind converters. Interestingly, some facts turn out to be quite astonishing.

The biggest number of minus points for the wind in one jump:

  1. Casey Larson – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round– -30.8 p. (216.5 m);
  2. Aleksander Bażenow – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – – 29.2 p. (159 m);
  3. Simon Ammann – Vikersund – individual competition – 1st round – -27.6 p. (239.5 m);
  4. Alex Insam – Vikersund – individual competition – 1st round – -27.4 p.(217.5 m);
  5. Jarkko Maeaettae – Willingen – individual competition – 1st round – -26.9 p. (131 m);
  6. Viktor Polasek – Vikersund – individual competition – 2nd round – -26.6 p. (213 m);
  7. Joachim Hauer – Willingen – individual competition – 1st round – -26.4 p.(131 m);
  8. Peter Prevc – Willingen – individual competition – 2nd round – -26.4 p. (142.5 m);
  9. Anze Semenic – Vikersund – individual competition – 1st round – -26.4 p. (216 m);
  10. Stephan Leyhe – Willingen – individual competition – 2nd round – -26.2 p. (134 m);

The biggest number of plus points in one jump:

  1. Kevin Bickner – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 2nd round – +34.2 p. (180.5 m);
  2. Tomas Vancura – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 1st round – +30.7 p. (171.5 m);
  3. Tomas Vancura – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition– 2nd round – +29.8 p. (177.5 m);
  4. Vincent Descombes Sevoie – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 2nd round – +29.6 p. (162.5 m);
  5. Peter Prevc – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 2nd round – +28.7 p. (211.5 m);
  6. Dawid Kubacki – Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – +27.4 p. (194.5 m);
  7. Tomas Vancura –  Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – +27.0 p. (139.5 m);
  8. Cene Prevc – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 1st round – +26.8 p. (159.5 m);
  9. Daniel Andre Tande – Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – +26.1 p. (185 m);
  10. Piotr Żyła –  Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – +25.4 p. (192 m);

What is worth attention?

  • Americans won both rankings. Casey Larson had the best wind, the worst was for Kevin Bickner;
  • Tomas Vancura was the ski jumper who for 10 jumps thrice received the biggest number of plus points, the conditions on ski flying hills were ruthless for the Czech;
  • In both rankings we have the jumps from…one competition! The team competition in Vikersund was unpredictable in terms of the conditions – in the first round the front wind occured – in the second one, the conditions completely changed.

The biggest minus deviation from avarage points for wind in a round in one jump:

  1. Andreas Stjernen – Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – -19.7 p. (3rd note);
  2. Casey Larson – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – -18.6 p. (24th note);
  3. Aleksander Bażenow – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – -17.0 p. (40th note);
  4. Robert Johansson – Innsbruck – 1st round – -13.4 p. (2nd note);
  5. Kamil Stoch – Vikersund – team competition – 2nd round – -13.3 p. (2nd note);
  6. Gregor Deschwanden – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – -12.9 p. (32nd note);
  7. Maciej Kot – Sapporo – second competition – 2nd round – -12.8 p. (6th note);

  9. Viktor Polasek – Vikersund – individual competition – 2nd round – -12.3 p. (22nd note);
  10. Roberto Dellasega – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – -11.7 p. (47th note);

The biggest plus deviation from avarage points for wind in a round in one jump:

  1. Anze Lanisek – Vikersund – team competition – 1st round – +25.8 p.(42nd note);
  2. Alexey Romashov – Planica – team competition – 1st round – +18.4 p.(41st note);
  3. Kevin Bickner – Oberstdorf (HS213) – 1st competition – 2nd round – +18.3 p. (23rd note);
  4. Stefan Hula – Innsbruck – 1st round – +16.4 p. (42nd note);
  5. Jarkko Maeaettae – Pjongczang – 2nd competition – 1st round – +15.7 p.(45th note);
  6. Tomas Vancura – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 1st round – +15.4 p. (25th note);
  7. Manuel Fettner – Vikersund – individual competition – 1st round – +15.4 p. (29th note);
  8. Kaarel Nurmsalu – Sapporo – 2nd competition – 1st round – +14.8 p. (48th note);
  9. Maciej Kot – Lillehammer – 2nd competition – 1st round – +14.4 p. (5th note);
  10. Tomas Vancura – Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st competition – 2nd round – +13.9 p. (28th note);

What is worth attention?

  • Not everyone can use the good conditions – only the half among jumpers from TOP10 of the greatest luck to the wind conditions took the best positions in a round;
  • Poor conditions lead to fatal consequences – TOP10 of the worst avarage conditions and 9 jumps were beyond TOP20 of a given round.

Competitions with the least avarage points for wind in a jump:

  1. Engelberg – 1st competition – +17.39 p.;
  2. Oberstdorf (HS213) – 1st competition – +15.55 p.;
  3. Zakopane – individual competition – +7.25 p.;
  4. Lillehammer – 2nd competition – +6.54 p.;
  5. Bischofshofen – 4-Hills-Tournament competition – +5.45 p.;
  6. Engelberg – 2nd competition – +5.06 p.;

What is worth attention?

  • In the ranking were included only the competitions which the average conversion rate for the contest was below -5 or above +5;
  • There were nine contests with the front wind, six with the back one;
  • Wind was more disturbing in the first half of the season (excluding 2nd competition in Kuusamo), the first competition with the minus avarage points for wind was…Innsbruck;
  • The conditions were much better in the second half of the season, 8/9 competitions with the front wind occured after 4-Hills-Tournament.

Competitions with the least deviation of the points for wind:

  1. Klingenthal – team competition – 1.00 p. (the average of the standard deviation for both rounds);
  2. Klingenthal – individual competition – 1.28 p.;
  3. Garmisch Partenkirchen –4-Hills-Tournament competition – 1.43 p.;
  4. Lahti – World Championships competition on a normal hill – 1.54 p.;
  5. Kuusamo – 1st competition – 1.77 p.;
  6. Oberstdorf – 4-Hills-Tournament competition – 1.87 p.;

Competitions with the biggest deviations of the points for wind:

  1. Vikersund – team competition – 7.02 p. (the average of the standard deviation for both rounds);
  2. Oberstdorf (HS225) – 1st round – 6.76 p.;
  3. Vikersund – individual competition – 5.74 p.;
  4. Sapporo – 2nd competition – 5.69 p.;
  5. Innsbruck – 4-Hills-Tournament competition – 5.59 p.;
  6. Willingen – team competition – 4.67 p.;

What is worth attention?

  • Two the justest contests of the season took place in Klingelthal – it’s a surprise because, on the basis of the previous years, the conditions were rather changeable there
  • Among six justest contests four were set in Germany;
  • Three  least fair contests took place on ski flying hills; however the wind converters on such objects are much bigger, thus small wind deviations cause a condiderable difference;
  • The fifth competition set in Innsbruck is considered to be the least fair.

Ski jumpers with the least number of points for wind:

1 LARINTO Ville FIN -114.9
2 GRANERUD Halvor Egner NOR -108.4
3 SEMENIC Anze SLO -103.4
4 KOUDELKA Roman CZE -100.4
5 ROMASHOV Alexey RUS -98.6
6 HUBER Stefan AUT -95.2
7 JOHANSSON Robert NOR -90.7
8 STJERNEN Andreas NOR -76.3
9 KRAFT Stefan AUT -74.2
10 SAKUYAMA Kento JPN -72.1

Ski jumpers with the biggest number of points for wind:

1 VANCURA Tomas CZE 112.1
2 FREUND Severin GER 76.1
3 KOFLER Andreas AUT 62.8
4 HULA Stefan POL 56.6
5 RHOADS William USA 39.5
6 MATURA Jan CZE 35.5
7 ZNISZCZOL Aleksander POL 31.2
8 MURANKA Klemens POL 25.9
9 PREVC Cene SLO 24.3
10 PEIER Killian SUI 21.4

What is worth attention?

  • Both rankings do not have a direct correspondence with The Ranking of Luck. The results are the amount of points received for wind in all jumps in the season;
  • Nature was the nicest then for Ville Larinto, who got several opportunities to jump in the good conditions; the same Halvor Egner Granerud & Anze Semenic;
  • Tomas Vancura, on the other hand, was the ski jumper who most often had to struggle with the back wind – especially during the contests in Obersdorf and Vikersund which turned out to be the harshest for him;
  • The second place of Severin Freund was caused by his injury, the last competition he participated in was Ga-Pa – until that moment the contests were set usually with the back wind.

In the next part we will focus on the shortest jumps of the past season.
