As announced by Michał Doleżal, Polish jumpers are to set off to Kuusamo on Wednesday for the next World Cup competition (November 27-28). On Monday, just after 10 o’clock, the Polish Ski Association confirmed that the rest of the competitors and the staff had negative test results.
The beginning of the World Cup season in Nizhny Tagil is extremely unsuccessful for the Polish team. Apart from the coronavirus, the white-and-reds are in poor shape at the start of the new season. In the Sunday competition, Kamil Stoch did not even manage to enter the second series of the competition. Similarly to Dawid Kubacki. In the final, we could only watch Piotr Żyła (16th place) and Andrzej Stękała (30th place). It was the worst competition during the term of office of Michał Doleżal.
