Stoch on the reasons for disqualification. “The measurement of the suit is a controversial issue”

“Measuring the suit is a delicate and controversial issue. Measuring half a centimeter lower or higher generally makes a few centimeters around its circumference” – said Kamil Stoch about the reasons for disqualification for non-regulatory suit. The judges noticed shortcomings in the volume of the suit around the jumper’s hips.

It was a bittersweet weekend for Kamil Stoch. The Pole jumped really well, but he struggled with his bad luck. In Saturday’s competition he made a landing error and damaged the ski binding. On Sunday, he could not take part in the competition due to disqualification.

He explained the Saturday error when landing with the fight for meters. He admitted that when he tries to jump as far as possible, he is just risking a landing error.

The regulations apply to all competitors, without exception. On the other hand, the measurement of the suits themselves is a delicate and controversial issue. In fact, measuring half a centimeter lower or higher generally makes a few centimeters around its circumference. However, it happened as it happened and here we need to draw conclusions for the future. I am glad that we had the opportunity to talk to the controller on how to avoid this situation in the future – said Kamil Stoch.

There is a lot of rest before the jumper. The World Cup will not be back until the end of November in Ruka, Finland.
