Much as I like any recognition for the absolute legend and walking piece of ski jumping history that is Noriaki Kasai, it seems a bit useless to give him a certificate for a record he'll improve with every single competition he competes in :p (and has been improving for years with every single competition, since the closest 'rival' is at 438 competitions and that's Ammann, who has of course been adding to his number as well)

 

Fun, useless fact I just came across: in Kasai's World Cup debut in 1988 (yeah), one of his Japanese teammates was Takuya Takeuchi, more than two decades later followed by Taku Takeuchi :p

The new calendar for the next World Cup was published by FIS a few days ago. You can find it HERE

 

There are only a few changes from the usual season we have. The postponed Sky-Flying Championships from this season will take the spot of the German round in the beginning of the season.

 

Lahti is moving up to January from it usual March (late February) spot, as to make room for a mini-Asian swing in February with Sapporo and the Olympic testing event in Beijing. Rasnov is also back, just for the sole reason to have a mixed event before the Worlds. A perfect combination for the rest period.

Yeah, don't be sure about this season being held at all.

 

If there is one competition format which will suffer the most right now, then that is definitely any given WC format, where athletes are required to travel from country to country on weekly basis.

 

Spain, for example, has already cancelled their equestrian 2020/21 WCs, scheduled for December...

I'm hoping they are, behind the scenes, thinking about a smaller season with competitions held within one or two nearby countries. Probably not feasible, but theoretically it might be possible to have two parts or something, one half of the season in Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Slovenia (if these countries agree, but since some borders are opening up, it might be possible), followed by something like RAW Air in Norway only. Not too much back and forth travelling should be at least a little helpful.

If by November, in this very topic the minutiae of the current season is debated, it means that there will be no brutal second wave and at least part of the WC can be held.

Fingers crossed for that but not 100% sure this will be the case

 

BTW, if it wasnt mentioned earlier, Sandro Pertile from Italy will be the new Race Director instead of Walter Hofer who retired. (The name of the new guy was a novelty for me, but it seems he was already nominated at the start of the 2019/20 season)

Yeah, Pertile had pretty much been following Hofer's footsteps everywhere he went for the entire last season as final preparation for taking over :p
