Polish jumpers did not do so badly for a long time. Even Kamil Stoch lost his form, who a few weeks ago could take a place on the podium, and on Monday in Innsbruck did not qualify for the competition, which was extremely rare for him throughout his career.

The trainer Michal Doleżal assures that he has found a solution that will make the jumpers come out of the crisis. But words do not turn into action. None of the White and Reds is still able to register permanently among the world’s best.

PZN is doing everything to change it. Director Adam Małysz puts pressure on the training staff and expects the results to improve. Dr. Harald Pernitsch, who joined the staff, is to help in this. Filip Czyszanowski, TVP Sport journalist, informed about the start of cooperation.

“All hands on board. Dr. Pernitsch is to join the crisis management today, for the decision on what to do with Kamil – we are still waiting. The decisive talks are still ahead of the interested parties” – Czyszanowski wrote on Twitter.

Pernitsch is a pioneer of many solutions proven in jumping. He is the creator of dynamometer platforms that measure the rebound power. At the beginning of the 21st century, he helped Austrian jumpers, and then collaborated with Germans and Poles.

He helped Stefan Horngacher, controlling the physical parameters of the players and advising what to do during training. Since the 2021/22 season, he has been a scientific consultant and is to help Polish ski jumpers get back in shape before the Olympic Games in Beijing.
