Stefan Raab has to admit defeat at the Wok World Championships: The Jamaica team is world champion in the four-wok. In the individual competition, Joey Kelly dethrones the eternal wok world champion Georg Hackl on the artificial ice rink at Königssee in Bavaria. Raab only comes in sixth this time.

Almost two weeks after their penultimate place at the Olympics in Sochi, the Jamaican bobsleigh team races to gold in Stefan Raab’s „TV total WOK – WM 2014“ on ProSieben. „It’s unbelievable,“ says pilot Seldwyn Morgan after the triumph. „We used the Olympics as perfect preparation. Now the whole island is cheering.“

Jamaica is the first nation outside Europe to win the title. Chief pilot Morgan and his team prevent the third title win of the “FC Bayern des Wok-Sports”, the Germany-Wok around Stefan Raab and Olympic champion Felix Loch.

The inventor of the wok sport is nevertheless pleased: „This historic success will give the Jamaican Olympic Committee food for thought. I expect it to support our efforts to make the wok sport Olympic.“ Odd: 48 hours before the start of the competition, the Jamaicans‘ participation was hanging by a thread.123 help me review In Kingston, there were delays in issuing visas for the wok athletes.

There is a changing of the guard not only in the team competition, but also in the individual discipline. Joey Kelly beats the record wok world champion Georg Hackl on his home track and prevents the Bischofswieser from winning the tenth gold. For Joey Kelly it is his second world title, the first by legal means. In 2006 he managed to defeat Hackl with a large number of inadmissible additional weights. The Irishman can’t believe it for hours after the competition: „It’s amazing. I’ve always dreamed of beating Schorsch. I would never have dreamed that I would be able to do it on his home and court tracks, of all places.“

After the third day of competition, Austria holds the

Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang

continue with a gold medal that toboggan runner David Gleirscher won on Sunday. For the best Monday placement, ski jumping ex-world champion Daniela Iraschko-Stolz took sixth place. The 2014 silver medalist was almost 18 points short of bronze in Alpensia on Monday.

Top favorite Maren Lundby from Norway secured gold. Chiara Hölzl as eleventh and Jacqueline Seifriedsberger as 13th played no role in the medal award.

In the biathlon pursuit, Simon Eder came 14th as the best Austrian, followed immediately by Julian Eberhard, who had just missed a medal in fourth in the sprint the day before, but dropped to 15th place with six penalty loops. Dominik Landertinger came in 26th. The victory went to France’s superstar Martin Fourcade. For the women, Katharina Innerhofer and Dunja Zdouc finished 40th and 58th in the defeated field. As in the sprint, gold went to German Laura Dahlmeier.

Anna Gasser „mad at herself“

Snowboarder Anna Gasser made strong gusts of wind thwart the medal calculation in the Slopestyle competition in Bokwang. The 26-year-old from Carinthia was accordingly angry after finishing 15th. „I’m not angry with myself, I’m just angry and disappointed that it was carried out under the conditions,“ emphasized Gasser after the competition in mostly irregular conditions. Like four years ago, American Jamie Anderson secured gold, which means that there was at least no chance winner.

The red-white-red tobogganers were not in the top field after the first day. Hannah Prock was the best ÖRV lady, 0.753 seconds behind the German halftime leader Natalie Geisenberger, in twelfth place for the time being, right in front of Madeleine Egle (+0.918 seconds). For Birgit Platzer, the Olympic toboggan competition ended prematurely, she was eliminated after a fall.

No alpine ski competition

Alpine skiing competitions, on the other hand, have still not taken place. After the men’s downhill run the day before, the women’s giant slalom was also canceled on Monday due to too much wind. Both races should now be made up for on Thursday.

Olympia is in full swing

. And mostly at a time when Austrians are still in bed and sleeping. So it’s no wonder that Google is getting a lot of search queries these days. We took a look at the 10 questions Austrians googled the most about the Olympics in the last few days. And give the answers.

„What time is it in South Korea?“

In South Korea the time difference is +8 hours. That is also the reason why, according to our time, many competitions are in the middle of the night, because in South Korea it is already morning.

In Pyeongchang, for example, an alpine skiing competition may start at 10:00 a.m., but in our case it’s only 2:00 a.m.

also a bonus

. In Austria there is a gold Philharmonic silver coin set worth 17,000 euros. By the way, there is also 13,000 euros for silver and 11,000 euros for bronze.

„Why do you jump at the Olympics so late at night in 2018?“

That leads back to the second question already asked: The late transmission times are generally due to the time difference in South Korea of ​​+8 hours. And of course the decision to hold part of the Olympic Games in the morning and not in the afternoon, which would have suited our time zone.

The Tyrolean David Gleirscher stays up after the second of four runs

Medal course

in tobogganing.

A Tyrolean lies with them

Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang

in the single-seater toboggan after two of four runs on Saturday on medal course. Surprisingly, however, it is not one of the favorites Wolfgang Kindl, but David Gleirscher. After a track record in the first run, the 23-year-old Olympic debutant is second 0.188 seconds behind double Olympic champion Felix Loch (GER).

Gleirscher, who sensationally led after the track record of 47.652 after the first heat, reached the seventh time for the „silver“ intermediate rank in the second run. Top favorite Loch is on course for his third Olympic gold medal en suite. In the single-seater, the 28-year-old could catch up with his role model Georg Hackl. After winning gold in the newly introduced team competition in 2014, Loch would even outperform him overall.

Loch improved Gleirscher’s new track record (47.652) to 47.625 in the second run. Third place was co-favorite Roman Repilow (RUS / + 0.217), just one thousandth ahead of American Chris Mazdzer. Double world champion Kindl was able to improve from eleventh to ninth place after a failed first run. Reinhard Egger is currently 15.

Good chances for Austria’s tobogganists

In any case, Austria’s tobogganists have a good chance of continuing their great Olympic series in the first competition on Sunday. In the last seven winter games en suite, the ÖRV had proven to be a medal guarantee for the ÖOC.

Gleirscher, whose best result so far at a major event was a seventh place in the 2016 World Championships in Königsee, was delighted with his great Olympic debut. „At the start I already sensed that it was a special race, you are a bit nervous. The first run went straight to me, but it was clear to me that this performance would also be needed in the following three races,“ he said Father of one son. „I can’t be completely satisfied with the second one, unfortunately there were small mistakes in Turns 6 and 7.“

„It’s a great feeling to be there up there“

But the balance after day one could of course only be positive. „It’s a great feeling to be up there, the first half is done, now I’m trying to stay with myself and do my job tomorrow too.“

For the surprise man, who had already shown with a track record a year ago in Pyeongchang that the Olympic ice track suits him, it is a completely new situation. „I’ve never done four runs in my life.“ It will be exciting for him and everyone else on Sunday from 10.50 a.m. CET when races three and four are due.

For the actual ÖRV favorite on precious metal, a podium place is already a long way off after day one. Kindl, who is only ninth in the intermediate ranking, does not want to give up yet: „As you can see, almost every mistake is made, it’s not over yet,“ said the 29-year-old overall World Cup runner-up this season.

However, especially in the first heat, he missed a lot of time. „In the first run I made a serious mistake in the upper part, which could have ended in a fall. From that point of view, I still managed it well, but of course the speed for the slide was gone,“ admitted Kindl. „There was also a bit of wind in there, but that shouldn’t be an excuse. The second run was better, but also not completely round.“

The third Austrian in the league, Reinhard Egger, is in 15th place. He also quarreled with the first round. „I chose too little edge for the first run and left a lot of time because of a few slides,“ said Egger. In the second heat he caught the attitude better. „Now we have to finish two constant runs tomorrow in order to gain as much ground as possible.“
