Kamil Stoch did a great job in qualifying and flew away from his rivals. The Pole jumped the farthest – as much as 135 meters. None of the jumpers in qualifying made such a far-reaching attempt. Not only that, no one has reached the limit of 130 meters. You can see how good the jump was in the photo from the transmission. You can see that the green line marking the distance needed to take the lead was significantly exceeded by the Pole.
