Besides Boyd-Clowes, also the young Finn Niko Kytösaho surprised the fans with the seventh position (135.5/126.5pts, 238.5pts) which means also a new personal career’s best for Kytösaho.

Tepes showed a strong first jump of 133.0 metres which meant the third place after the first round. A weaker second jump of 123.0 meters was not enough to secure a place on the podium.
Russian Mikhail Nazarov became ninth (130.0/127.5m, 236.0pts).
The whole Finnish team made it to the second round. Antti Aalto finished as 18th, Eetu Nousiainen became 30th.
