KRAFT THE BEST IN ZAKOPANE. POLISH SKI JUMPERS LET EVERYBODY DOWN

AUTHOR: Sławomir Rykowski PUBLISHED AT: 21-01-2019
Stefan Kraft from Austria won in the individual competition of FIS Ski Jumping World Cup held at Wielka Krokiew Hill in Zakopane. Second place belonged to Robert Johansson whose shape is getting better. On the third step of the podium stood Yukiya Sato from Japan for whom it was the best place in his career. Dawid Kubacki, who was 12th, was the best of Polish ski jumpers.

Johann Andre Forfang, disqualified on Saturday, was 4th. His jump in the final round was the best – he jumped 137 meters, so he changed his position from 19th to 4th. Also second jump of Ryoyu Kobayashi permitted him to end the competition in top10.  What’s more, happy of their performance can be Halvor Egner Granerud from Norway (5th place), Daniel Huber of Austria (6th place) and German Stephan Leyhe and Timi Zajc from Slovenia occupied ex aeqou with younger Kobayashi brother 7th position.

Sunday’s individual competition certainly wasn’t the best for Polish ski jumpers. Dawid Kubacki was the best among of them, but 12th place of current hill size record holder wasn’t satisfying both for the supporters at the hill and in front of the TVs. Kamil Stoch let everybody down the most because he didn’t manage to qualify to the final round of the competition. On the other hand, the place of Stefan Hula (17th) , who after first jump was on the 9th position), can be optimistic, as well as the performance of Paweł Wąsek who gained his first points in the World Cup overall classification.
