The upcoming 2023-24 World Cup season is set to be a thrilling competition, with several talented athletes vying for the top spot. One such athlete is Norway’s Espen Granerud, who is aiming to win his third overall World Cup trophy. If successful, he would become the fourth man to achieve this feat.
Granerud 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. Austria’s Stefan Kraft, who finished second last year, will also be vying 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 expected to be contenders in the upcoming competition. Switzerland’s Simon Ammann, a four-time Olympic champion, will be competing in his 26th World Cup season.
In addition to the individual events, the men’s large hill super team event is also expected to be highly competitive. The Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are favored to win this event after taking home the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year.
