Osipov flying high
Of four participants in the super-finals, the Belarusian earned 116.06 points, losing to Chinese Jia Zongyang (124.89). Bronze went to Canadian Olivier Rochon (114.39). Dmitry Dashchinsky also did well, but the more experienced Belarusian jumper finished sixth, failing to reach the final four.
Other Belarusian athletes were knocked out after the qualification round: Maxim Gustik was placed 13th and Crystal Globe 2010 winner Anton Kushnir (suffering from a bad knee injury this season) was 18th out of 22 jumpers.
The closing round of the World Cup last Saturday was hosted by Norwegian Myrkdalen-Voss.
