Get Ready for Thrilling Ski Jumping Action: A 2023-24 World Cup Season Preview and the Athletes to Watch

In the upcoming 2023-24 World Cup season, Granerud is set to compete for his third overall trophy, making him the fourth man in history to achieve this feat. The 27-year-old dominated last year’s competition, winning six more titles than his closest rival.

Poland’s Dawid Kubacki, a two-time world champion, will be looking to improve upon his fourth-place finish from last season and challenge Granerud for the title. Austrian veteran Stefan Kraft, who finished as the runner-up last year, will also be vying for his fourth overall title. Japan’s Kobayashi Ryoyu, the reigning Olympic champion, hopes to improve upon his fifth-place finish from last season.

Slovenia’s Anze Lanisek and Poland’s Piotr Zyla will also be ones to watch in the upcoming competition. Lanisek finished third overall last season, while Zyla is the reigning individual normal hill world champion. Switzerland’s Simon Ammann, a four-time Olympic champion, will be competing in his 26th World Cup season.

In addition to these individual competitors, the Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are favored to win the men’s large hill super team event. They took home the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year. With such a strong field of competitors and exciting events on tap, it promises to be an exciting and highly competitive 2023-24 World Cup season for ski jumping.
