The upcoming 2023-24 season of the World Cup will see several talented athletes vying for the top spot, including Granerud who is looking to win his third overall title and become the fourth man to achieve this feat. Last year, Granerud dominated the competition by winning six more titles than his closest rival. He will face tough competition from Poland’s Dawid Kubacki, a two-time world champion, who finished in fourth place last season and is looking to improve upon that performance.
Austrian veteran Stefan Kraft, who finished as runner-up last year, will also be competing for his fourth overall title. Japan’s Kobayashi Ryoyu, the reigning Olympic champion, is hoping to improve upon his fifth-place finish from last season. Slovenia’s Anze Lanisek and Poland’s Piotr Zyla are also ones to watch in the upcoming competition.
Switzerland’s Simon Ammann, a four-time Olympic champion, will be competing in his 26th World Cup season and adding another layer of excitement to the competition. Additionally, the Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are favored to win the men’s large hill super team event after taking home the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year.
