Poles, what is going on ?! It hasn’t been that bad for so many years

We forgot about the times when Polish jumpers entered the season badly. Recent years have spoiled, but the beginning of it brought fans and the players themselves to the ground. We checked when Biało-Czerwoni started the season so poorly.

The three seasons of Stefan Horngacher and two of Michał Doleżal made Polish fans used to the fact that we don’t have to wait long for good jumps. Whether it was in the windy Kuusamo or in the Wisła Biało-Czerwony, they were able to immediately be in the lead and bring joy to the fans.

That is why such an unsuccessful inauguration of this season by Polish jumpers hurts twice. Recently, it was as bad as in Nizhny Tagil 6 years ago in the German Klingenthal. Back then, in the team competition, Łukasz Kruczek’s players took a distant 6th place, and a day later only 13th Kamil Stoch scored in the individual competition. Dawid Kubacki was 33rd and Piotr Żyła was 39th.

That season, apart from the bronze medal of Polish jumpers in the team competition of the World Cup, was unsuccessful for the Polish team. May history not come full circle and the current one will not be the same. For now, however, we do not have many reasons to be satisfied.

None of the Polish jumpers is in a stable form. Even Kamil Stoch, who won the qualification on Friday and was fifth a day later. On Sunday, however, he jumped much less. On average, both in qualifying and in the competition (33rd position).

Kubacki and Żyła are also a shadow of himself. The first on Saturday was 13th, a day later, just like Stoch, he did not even advance to the final series (35th place). Żyła jumped in reverse. On Saturday he finished the competition after the first round, on Sunday he was 16th He was definitely below the potential.

In the previous five seasons, we’ve always had at least one big inauguration success. In the 2016/2017 season, Maciej Kot was immediately in the lead. Then, for four consecutive seasons in Wisła Biało-Czerwoni were on the podium of the team competition, and Stoch shone individually (2nd, 4th and 3rd successively from 2017 to 2019) and 5th Piotr Żyła last year.

May Nizhny Tagil turn out to be just an accident at work. Two more World Cup competitions are scheduled for November 27-28 in Kuusamo. Broadcast on TVN and Eurosport 1.
