Kamil Stoch unexpectedly fell into a serious crisis. In November and December, the Pole was the leader of our team and even stood on the podium in the World Cup competitions. Whereas during Four Hills Tournament, he is doing worse and worse from one competition to another. In Oberstdorf he was 41st, on the hill in Garmisch-Partenkirchen he was 47th, and in Innsburck he didn’t even finish qualifying, finishing 59th.

The poor disposition of the three-time Olympic champion surprised, among others Norwegian jumper Halvor Egner Granderudwhich, after two TCS competitions, offered Stoch an unusual solution on TVP Sport, which was to help him return to good disposition. – I thought he would be one of the favorites at the 4-Hills-Tournament. He must regain the joy of jumping. If I were him, I would jump from three beams higher in training than the others, or I would choose a tandem jump. He must feel the fun again, said the Norwegian.

Interestingly, a year ago during the 69th Four Hills Tournament, Granerud was frustrated with his results, which he reacted by criticizing the final winner, Kamil Stoch. “Under equal conditions in Bischofshofen, I can win with him by 10 points in each series. He does not jump that well, but he has good results. The conditions were favorable for the Poles again” – said the Norwegian competitor in an interview with TV 2 after the competition in Innsbruck. Later, the 25-year-old apologized to the Pole, admitting that the interview was the result of frustration.

The young Norwegian became famous eight years ago, when as a 16-year-old he went with his friends from the training group “Kollenhopp” to the K-60 Midtstuen in Holmenkollen where he jumped completely naked. The jumper, just before climbing the beam, took off his shirt and jumped wearing only skis, helmet and gloves. He was immediately jumped by another person who recorded everything, which can be seen by clicking on the link from the Facebook post below.

This is not the only time Granerud has jumped in two people. In the past, it even happened that he would jump together with three or four other friends one after another. Nothing happened to him then.

His participation in a freestyle competition ended differently for him in April 2016. While performing a somersault on cross-country skis, the Norwegian athlete suffered a serious fall, which resulted in a puncture in his right lung.

Ryoyu Kobayashi is the leader of the ongoing 4-Hills-Tournament. Halvor Egner Granerud is currently fifth, 29.8 points behind the Japanese. In turn, Kamil Stoch is only in 45th position and is already 378.7 points behind the leading player. This is the fifth result among Poles, out of six jumpers from our country, who have competed in the 70th TCS so far.
