Ito also expressed his satisfaction that both the Sapporo residents and the competitors are pleased at the organization of the event has run smoothly so far.[8] Switzerland's Simon Ammann had the longest jumps of both rounds of competition with distances of 136.0 m and 135.5 m, respectively, though his Swiss teammates did not perform as well, causing them to finish seventh in the event.
