In training, Kamil Stoch’s jumps were solid, but he surprised everyone with his flight in qualifying. Stoch fired the firecracker, as in the best of times. 135 meters, a beautiful, impeccable flight and a victory in qualifying. In the first competition, however, he took fifth place. During the World Cup in Nizhny Tagil, the victory fell to Karl Geiger, who was ahead of Ryoyu Kobayashi and Halvor Egner Granerud. On Sunday something unimaginable happened. Stoch has failed all the way. He jumped only 112 meters and although he did not have the best conditions, it is hard to justify such a short distance and 33rd place.
– What!? I didn’t know about it. Kamil was one of the best players in Saturday’s final and won the Friday qualification. I do not think it is out of shape – Granerud was surprised when asked by the journalist skijumping.pl
What did Stoch have to say? – I can’t blame it because nothing was going well today. From the beginning I had a problem with the inrun position and therefore there was no good energy from the threshold. There was no height or speed – the Pole analyzed in an interview with Eurosport. Later, however, he admitted in an interview with TVP that after an analysis with coach Doleżal it turned out that the jump was good, but the Pole was hindered by the lack of good conditions.
It was Granerud who won the competition. This is the Norwegian’s 12th triumph in his career.
