Jumping. Dawid Kubacki after the lottery competition in Sapporo. “We would take it in the dark”
– The jumps were not fun today, they lacked a lot, I could probably put it down to the hour when the competition was taking place and when we had to arrive at the hill, but actually the legs did not work properly, maybe a little tired of this trip – said Kubacki in front of the cameras Eurosport about the competitions played in the morning.
However, he assessed that technically his attempts were defending themselves.
– That’s why I wouldn’t break down, because we know that in Japan it can be much worse, you can find worse conditions, which maybe I wasn’t lucky with, but that’s how it is – he added.
After three competitions in Okurayama, his advantage over Granerud, second in the World Cup, decreased to 48 points.
“What does that change?” I have to do my thing on the hill. And that’s it. There were three competitions in Japan and I think that given the changing conditions we had here, I could have done even worse and it would have looked completely different. I think that despite the subtle mistakes that I will work on, I defended myself with my jumps, although of course it was not what I would like to show – he noted.
However, he emphasized that he does not intend to let this performance down.
“This 11th place is pretty good, and last season we would have taken it blindly, so I take it on my chest and keep working. One bad day does not rule out the chances, the season is still long – he summed up.
Ryoyu Kobayashi, a representative of the hosts, won for the second time this season in Japan. The third was quite unexpectedly the German Markus Eisenbichler.
The next cup stop will be the Austrian Bad Mitterrndorf, where the jumpers will compete on the mammoth hill Kulm.
