Nov 21, 2023

Granerud is chasing a hat-trick of globes in the overall World Cup trophy, hoping to become the fourth man to achieve this feat in the 2023-24 season. He dominated last year, winning six more titles than his closest rival and facing tough competition from Poland’s Dawid Kubacki, who is aiming to improve upon his best World Cup finish of fourth place. Austrian veteran Stefan Kraft, last year’s runner-up, is also hungry to secure his fourth overall title, while reigning Olympic champion Kobayashi Ryoyu of Japan, who finished in fifth place last season, is determined to climb the rankings. Anze Lanisek of Slovenia, who finished third overall last season, and Piotr Zyla of Poland, the reigning individual normal hill world champion, will also be contenders to watch out for. Additionally, Swiss four-time Olympic champion Simon Ammann is competing in his 26th World Cup season and cannot be underestimated. The Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are expected to be the favorites in the men’s large hill super team event, having won the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year.
