World Cup gold for Canada: Alexandra Lottet, Willy Borstel’s “heiress”.

World Cup gold for Canada: Alexandra Lottet, Willy Borstel’s “heiress”.

Alexandria Lotet scores a historic ski jumping victory at Planica. The 19-year-old wins his first maple leaf gold on the hill, and Austria is happy too. Daniel Chovenig is her boyfriend, Janko Zwetter from Carinthia is her coach – and one of her country’s early training pioneers is a jumping icon.

Planica. It’s a historic gold medal: Iskandar Lautit won Canada’s first world championship gold in ski jumping. The teenager from Calgary, 19, dramatically flew away from everyone at the Planica Big Hill competition and won with jumps of 134.5 and 136.5 meters. Two Carinthians cheered with her: her boyfriend, ÖSV eagle Daniel Chovenig. And her coach, Janko Zoeter, who brought back to Lotet the joy of jumping and benefited the team that trains most of the time in Slovenia with physical and mental tricks.

Everyone who talks about Canadian ski jumpers and coaches from Austria is always reminded of Willi Pürstl. The 1975 Four Hills Tournament winner was the pioneer of training in the 1980s with the Maple Leafs. He shaped men like Horst Pulau – who is also a role model for Lottet. When she achieved her first World Cup victory in Zao, Japan, in January, her belief in flying and taking off grew. Now it’s gold-plated for “heiress” Willie Burstell.

The world championship competition on the big hill ended in disappointment for the ÖSV women. Eva Pinkelnig was the 6th best ÖSV player (121/123). Kiara Crozier is ninth, and Sara Marita Kramer is 12th (126.5/122.5). For Harald Rudellauer’s team, the 2023 World Cup is history.
