Polish jumpers started the season badly. Friday’s training sessions and qualifications in Wisła gave hope for a breakthrough. First of all, high-level repeatability begins to catch up with Kamil Stoch. He didn’t spoil any rehearsal on Friday. He won the first practice, was in the lead of the second and took 10th place in qualifying.

The three-time Olympic champion is jumping technically better and better, but still looking for the best equipment. On Friday in Wisła he jumped in various overalls. He wore navy blue for training, but already in qualifying he jumped in gray. However, it was not a jumpsuit, but shoes that attracted the greatest attention of observers.

A special black cover was placed on Stoch’s shoes. It was captured by a photographer of the Polish Press Agency, and the photo can be seen at the bottom of the text.

In the covers themselves, however, it will be difficult to look for a hardware advantage over rivals. This could possibly be coveralls. You can see that in this element, the White-Reds are still in the testing phase. Not only Stoch jumped on Friday in various suits. The outfit was also surprised by Jakub Wolny, who put on a yellow outfit for training, and later returned to navy blue.

Testing the suits in the first part of the season is not new. This is the perfect moment to choose the right equipment and then be able to compete at a high level in the most important moments of the season: the 4-Hills-Tournament, the Olympic Games or the Ski flying World Championships. Now there is still time for it, later it may be too late for any changes.

And the equipment plays a big role in today’s ski jumping. A few years ago, the so-called chocolate overalls of Polish jumpers. The whole world envied us. Later, the Norwegians found a great black material for the suits.

Who will surprise you at the most important events this season? We will soon know the answer to this question and we do not mind that the Polish jumpers will again get the most attention in this respect. This will mean that their hardware is working and performing well.

We are counting on these better results during the Saturday team match in Wisła. The competition starts at 4:30 PM. Broadcast on TVP 1, Eurosport 1 and WP Pilot.
