Ski Jumping. Michal Doleżal after Saturday’s competition in Ruce

Live broadcasts of the World Cup competitions in Eurosport, Player and TVN

Eighth place by Kamil Stoch, 23rd Piotr Żyła – this is the balance sheet of the White and Reds after Saturday’s competition in Finland.

Summarizing the performances, the coach Doleżal referred to Żyła’s “pulling to the ground”, about which the Polish jumper spoke hotly after the competition. In the trial series he got 127 meters. In the first round he improved by four meters, but he did not make a jump in the final round – 120.5 m.

– In the trial round it hit the threshold and there was better rotation. And with two competition rehearsals, he was quite late – admitted the coach of the Poles.

Trener Doleżal on the “positive moment”

In the third competition in a row in the final round again only two Polish jumpers appeared.

– Unfortunately, it is not pleasant. We can count Piotr’s second jump as positive. You can see that the leg was working better. It is a pity that some points were taken from him during the last jump (Żyła landed without a telemark – ed.), But this is such a positive moment when it comes to Piotr – he added.

– We are trying, and I am sending a lot of remarks, to make these jumps much better. We will not train anything else during the competition – he said.

On Sunday, Poles have a chance for rehabilitation. The second individual competition will be held in Ruka, preceded by qualifications. Then the players will move to Wisła.

– Tomorrow we will do what we can, we will fight. Later, if the hill is ready, we will jump calmly – he announced.
