This year’s edition of the Summer Grand Prix in ski jumping is coming to an end. This weekend the carousel moved to Hinzenbach. After a few weeks, the best Polish jumpers, headed by Kamil Stoch and Dawid Kubacki, appeared at the start.

The winner of the Crystal Ball, Ryoyu Kobayashi, entered the competition for the first time this summer. The Japanese showed his great side right away, because in the first training he jumped 92.5 m and turned out to be the best in this series. The second place was ex aequo Dawid Kubacki (88 m) and German Karl Geiger (89 m).

The second training was a show of Kubacki’s great form. The Olympic bronze medalist from Beijing jumped over the Aigner-Schanze hill (HS 90), achieving 94 m. The Pole came to Austria in excellent shape, because he also jumped fantastically in qualifying. In them, the judges measured 92 meters, which gave a certain victory.

Ryoyu Kobayashi, who qualified 91 meters in qualifying, but was disqualified for illegal suit, may speak of bad luck. As a result, the Japanese will not present himself to the fans during the Sunday competition. The next opportunity is in Klingenthal, where the competition under the LGP will end.

The remaining Poles showed their good side in the qualifying rounds. The sixth place was taken by Paweł Wąsek, eighth Kacper Juroszek, ninth Kamil Stoch, tenth Piotr Żyła, fifteenth Stefan Hula and twenty-fourth Jakub Wolny.

Sunday’s individual competition is scheduled for 2:15 pm. From the point of view of the fight for the triumph in the general classification, it will be an interesting competition between Kubacki and Stoch, who rank ex aequo first.
