Stoch, who returned to training on the hill on Monday, after a break caused by weaker disposition, on Wednesday did not take part in the activities of the entire team at Wielka Krokiew im. Stanisław Marusarz. Our great jumper suffered an injury. However, the situation is not good.
– It’s not anything serious. Kamil stood badly when he was running to warm up and there was a problem with the ankle joint. Everything indicates that he will be able to start at the weekend – said Jan Winkiel, secretary general of the Polish Ski Association, in an interview with Onet Sport.
Moments later, Stoch was subjected to a preliminary examination and the situation is not good. There was swelling and our jumper’s performance was questionable. An X-ray was needed. After it, everything will be clear.
– I am waiting now for the result of the X-ray examination. After him, we will make a decision – Dr. Winiarski told us.
This weekend (January 14-16), the Ski Jumping World Cup will take place in Zakopane. For Stoch, it is to be a return to competition after an over ten-day break. He made his last appearance at the start on January 3 in qualifying for the 4-Hills-Tournament in Innsbruck. He did not qualify for the competition then and left Austria for home.
Let us remind you that Stoch underwent an ankle surgery in the spring. In the summer he did not perform at the Grand Prix in Wisła because he had swelling. A few weeks ago in Klingenthal, on Saturday, he stood on the podium of the World Cup competition, and a day later he would not compete in the competition due to severe sinusitis.
