At 3pm an individual competition takes place at Adam-Malysz-hill. This is the first time in history that the season opening is held in Wisła.

First individual competition of World Cup takes place on Sunday in Wisla-Malinka. 50 ski jumpers from 12 different countries will participate in the first round of the event. Unfortunately Denis Kornilov decided not to jump in the competition due to the accident that happened on Saturday. He will be replaced by the 51st athlete from Friday’s qualifications – Robert Kranjec. Polish team will be represented by 7 ski jumpers: Jakub Wolny, Aleksander Zniszczoł, Stefan Hula, Dawid Kubacki, Piotr Żyła, Maciej Kot and Kamil Stoch. Competition will be interesting. All the tickets have been sold, so 8 thousands of fans will cheer up the athletes.  Also the Polish President, Andrzej Duda, will be watching the competition at the hill. As it comes to the weather, it has started to snow during night.

Trial round is planned for 2pm and the first round starts at 3pm.
