The Austrians were left out of Sunday’s competition. Coronavirus tests have been positive for Daniel Huber, Thomas Lackner, Manuel Fettner and Jan Hoerl. It was decided that the rest of the players in this country (Markus Schiffner and Maximilian Steiner) who had a negative test result would not compete that day.
Coach Michal Dolezal did not call in the main Polish jumpers: Piotr Żyła, Dawid Kubacki and Kamil Stoch for the Russian competition. They are preparing for the World Flight Championship that will start on Thursday in Planika.
