Ski Jumping. WC in Zakopane. Kamil Stoch injured

– 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.

Stoch will now be tested to see how severe the injury is.

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.
