Freund to jump in Sapporo despite injury


BERLIN: Defending champion Severin Freund has said he is ready to fly at this weekend’s World Cup ski-jumping event in Japan’s Sapporo, despite not being fully recovered from a back injury. The 27-year-old, who won the 2014/15 overall World Cup title, suffered a herniated disc in a fall in Innsbruck on January 3 and sat out last weekend’s Zakopane World Cup event. He will jump in Japan despite not being completely fit.
