In the upcoming 2023-24 World Cup season, Granerud is looking to make history by winning his third overall trophy. This would make him the fourth man to achieve this feat in ski jumping. The 27-year-old dominated last year’s competition, winning six more titles than his closest rival.
Austrian veteran Stefan Kraft, who finished as the runner-up last year, will be competing for his fourth overall title. Poland’s Dawid Kubacki, a two-time world champion, will also be looking to improve upon his fourth-place finish from last season and challenge Granerud for the title.
Japanese reigning Olympic champion Kobayashi Ryoyu will be hoping to improve upon his fifth-place finish from last season. Slovenia’s Anze Lanisek, who finished third overall last season, and Poland’s Piotr Zyla, the reigning individual normal hill world champion, will also be ones to watch in the upcoming competition.
Adding another layer of excitement to the competition is Switzerland’s Simon Ammann, a four-time Olympic champion who will be competing in his 26th World Cup season. The Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are favored to win the men’s large hill super team event, having taken the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year.
