Kamil Stoch won the first place on Saturday World Cup Wisla competition in a fantastic style. Thanks to his triumph at Adam Malysz ski jumping hill in Wisla Malinka he took the lead in general classification and outrun Domen Prevc by 42 points. Stefan Kraft from Austria was second and Andreas Wellinger from Germany took third place.
The qualification for the Saturday individual competition of Wisla Fis World Cup 2017 were held on Friday. German athlete Richard Freitag turned out the best after jumping the distance of 133 metres, which made his qualification triumph. 7 Polish ski-jumpers also managed to get their way to the individual competition. Dawid Kubacki received the highest note with the result of 133,5 metres.
As in previous years, traditionally after qualification a bibs distribution ceremony was held for ten best players, competing in the World Cup in Wisła. The audience gathered in the S. Hadyna Amphitheatre to greet with applause the best nine in general classification. On stage they could see four representatives from Austria: Stefan Kraft, Michael Hayboeck, Manuel Fettner and Andreas Kofler, Germany Markus Eisenbichler, Norway Daniel Andre Tande and the leader from Slovenia Domen Prevc.
Just like in the previous year, ski-jumping fans that come to Wisła can take advantage of many additional attractions. Those who could not get the tickets for Ski-Jumping competition can come to Wisla centre and watch a life transmission from the World Cup on a large outdoor screen. Fan zone also features concerts of music bands ranging from traditional folklore to disco and dance music.
Similarly to previous years, changes in the traffic organization around Malinka Ski-Jumping Hill are expected before the competition starts. On Saturday and Sunday shuttle traffic movement is planned in Malinka Street in the section of Malinka-Czarne junction up to Cienkow ski car-park. Shuttle movement is dependent on the intensity of car and pedestrian traffic. Changes in the traffic movement can be introduced a few hours before the competition starts and last until ski-jumping finishes. One road-lane will be reserved for pedestrians and the other for automobile movement. The police will assist traffic management. Traffic changes are not planned on Friday.
68 competitors from 17 countries are coming to Poland to fight in the World Cup, which takes place from 13th to 15th January at Adam Malysz Ski Jump in Wisla Malinka. Apart from the best Polish ski jumpers of the 65th 4 Hills Tournament, such as Kamil Stoch or Piotr Zyla, we will see the leaders of the World Cup, such as Domen Prevc (1st) and Daniel Andre Tande (2nd). Gregor Schlierenzauer from Austria comes back in the game after a long break and chooses Wisla for the place of his first competition.
