Henri’s spectacular performance was second to only his World record performance at Munich three years back and that too by only 1.2 points. However the difference between the gold and silver was 2.1 between him and Potent.
Speaking about his performance post the medal ceremony, Junghaenel said, “It definitely was a good day for me. I started off a little bit on the right, but once I fixed that the final was pretty awesome.”
“It’s been a great final. No doubt about that. The range need some minor fixes, but you can already say it’s a good range,” concluded the German.
Steven Pletikosic of Serbia finished as third with a score of 186.2. His last World Cup medal in this event was a Gold in Rio de Janeiro in 2008.
