Summary

Already one of the favourites for this event before the Games began, Simon Ammann’s clear victory on the normal hill set up him as definitely the man to beat for the large hill title.

The competition followed the pattern set earlier in the week with Ammann soaring into the lead with a massive first round jump then matched his feat by posting the longest jump of the second round as well. The podium positions were also identical as Adam Małysz won silver and Gregor Schlierenzauer improved his position in the second round to claim the bronze medal.

Prior to the competition, Austria's head coach Alexander Pointner accused the Swiss of using curved iron bindings, which were not approved by the International Ski Federation (FIS). According to Pointner, the bindings enabled Ammann to gain a better flight position, thereby improving aerodynamics. The FIS said, however, that Ammann’s bindings were in line with the rules

With four Olympic golds, Ammann matched Matti Nykänen’s record number of Olympic ski jumping titles.
