A press conference with Polish ski jumpers took place on Thursday, 18th July 2019, in Golebiewski Hotel in Wisla. 12 Polish athletes who will participate in the qualification for Sunday’s individual event, as well as Michał Doležal, Head Coach, and Maciej Maciusiak, Coach of Team B, were present during the conference.

Head Coach is optimistic before the first competition in this summer season – “Our preparation go into a right direction and we realise them according to the system which we established at the beginning – says Doležal – The cooperation between Team A and Team B is functioning very well. Fortunately there is no health issues in our team and we are all ready for the first competitions. Summer has been always for us a preparation period for winter season. It is obvious that when we participate in the competition, we want to have the best performance as possible, but there is no special preparation for this event.

Also Maciej Maciusiak is contented about the cooperation between the teams. – The cooperation between Team A and Team is very good and we keep in touch with each other. We know about the exact shape of every ski jumper and how they perform at the facilities. It is worth to remember that summer is a preparation season and we have everything planned. Our main goal is to have a full cooperation and for the moment we cooperate perfectly.

Kamil Stoch, who likes the rivalry, waits for the competitions in Poland. – Summer competitions are different, of course each of us has its own perspective. Personally, I am happy when I think about the rivalry. This is why we train, spend a lot of hours at the gym and at the hills, to be the best and to compete with the best ski jumpers. However, I am aware that if something goes wrong, this such a period of preparation, that I don’t need to worry about that, because there a lot of time before winter and I have time to get rid of the mistakes.
