No excuse for Maren Lundby anymore. She said women are build better to reach longer distances than the men. Now it's time to put that into action :lol:

 

Realistically ca. 15 female jumpers have a chance of reaching 200m. And half of them are Slovenians. Those jumpers who struggle to reach 100m on a big hill probably won't even reach 150m on a ski-flying hill IMO.

Due to the World Cup in Qatar the new season will start on November 6th in Wisla and for the first time ever the competition will be held on plastic run-offs which is standard for the summer events. The season will close on April 2nd which makes it the longest ski jumping season ever. Pretty expendable in a sport where only 10 nations compete on a reasonable basis and some of them are semi-professional to say the very least.

 

Also :BUL Vladimir Zografski has moved to Poland full-time (his wife is Polish).

World Cup starts on the 21st, why it has to be so early in Wisla and not November 12-13th, heck even the normal 19-20th? It is still before the WC starts :d

 

Longest season only in timeframe, but as usual in number of rounds. This time we are getting only 4 stops, instead of 5, in the pre-4 Hills period. Iron Mountain and Rasnov are the odd ones and by the look of their place in the calendar they will be the break ones for the top competitors before the Worlds. 

 

The bigger question though is, where have the Team events gone?! I see only 3 regular ones + 1 mixed one (with one Rasnov TBC). Last year we had 5 and 3-4 years ago we had 7-8 team competitions a year..

@Federer91There is lack of teams for a "competition" to be held. Only 11 teams took part in WOG, take away China & Russia you have nine, including Switzerland which sometimes skips team events on purpose and USA which doesn't have four spots to enter in individual rounds anyway. And Finland didn't bother entering WOG and they have more problems with this sport overall. Italy & Kazakhstan don't appear to be interested and France lost interest many moons ago.
