Although Kamil Stoch did not impress with his form in the Polish championship, he was second to none in qualifying for the first World Cup in ski jumping in Nizhny Tagil. Stoch took advantage of the great wind conditions and jumped as much as 135 meters.

Stoch’s qualifying jump was no accident. Already in training, the world champion signaled that he came to Russia in high form. He was fourth and ninth in changing conditions. Therefore, there is no doubt – the form of Stoch is better than we anticipated and we are waiting for the Saturday competition with high hopes.

This gave him the victory in qualifying. The second competitor – Anze Laniska – was 10.5 points ahead. After the competition, Stoch was awarded by the organizers, which surprised him a lot.

Saturday’s competition will start at 4:00 PM. Broadcast on TVN, Eurosport 1 and WP Pilot. The resulting live coverage on WP SportoweFakty.
