FIS Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping World Cup races in Val di Fiemme
Tonight QR at the Ski Jumping Arena of Predazzo
1st Ryoyu Kobayashi, 2nd Kraft, 3rd Kubacki
Tomorrow from 4 pm the competition round


After the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup, Val di Fiemme hosted the Ski Jumping qualification round. The legendary Adam Malysz, who was the first athlete to win the World Cup three years in a row (from 2001 to 2003), was in the "cradle of Nordic skiing" to watch the performances of the Ski Jumping World Cup athletes during the qualification round at the Ski Jumping Arena of Predazzo. As usual, the Japanese Ryoyu Kobayashi confirmed his good shape (146.5), giving only the crumbs to his opponents: "I do not feel like a rising star of this sport, rather a 'competitor' able to deal with the best athletes. I've been here before at the Junior World Championship on the normal hill, but it's my first time on the large hill. Stefan Kraft (142.7): "I'm very satisfied, it has been a good qualification round and I made an almost perfect jump. The organisation of the event was almost flawless. I've already jumped here in the past and coming back was very nice", and the Polish Dawid Kubacki (141.6), the least expected among the protagonists: "My main goal is to improve the jump, which in fact is the only thing I can do at the moment. The results will speak for themselves", with Kamil Stoch fifth (137) and Piotr Zyla 16th (124.2). Tonight's jump defined the best 50 that will start tomorrow in the race at 4 pm. It was a beautiful evening full of 'colour' with many foreign supporters, especially from Poland. The fans supported their stars and danced in the pre-race to cope with the cold temperatures. Tomorrow the race will start at 4 pm while the Nordic Combined athletes will participate in the Team Sprint event.
