Kamil Wolnicki: Did you look at Planica’s World Cup final or is that time where there’s nowhere to jump in your head?
David Kobacki: Marta and I watched not only the final, but all the competitions. Well, apart from that Saturday morning, because I was driving to the hospital at the time, so I just listened to what was going on on the road. Besides, we’ve seen it all.
I know what’s going on in your life right now is private, but I have to ask, how is Marta doing? Because you also know that her story moved all of Poland, but also the world of ski jumping.
That’s right, it’s a thing for me too, which shows how close we are. We are competitive with each other in terms of sports, but even though we are competitors, we love and respect each other. There is no place for stupid theatrics. beautiful thing. And what happened on Sunday…we’ll probably get to that in a bit.
I asked about Marta. I don’t want to get into the medical stuff, but it’s getting better every day. My wife is tired and sore from everything behind her, but it doesn’t surprise me at all. But I think we’re making a lot of progress in such a short time. From a medical point of view, the most important thing is that the heart parameters are good and there are no abnormalities or unexpected conditions.
In a very short time, everything got better, and doctors say it must be described as a miracle, because after these experiences people got back into shape, but they needed more time.
The news you gave yourself, as well as the rumors, because they also appeared, were very shocking.
You know… what you wrote wasn’t the full picture. What we lived together and what we went through is probably indescribable. Now, however, the most important thing is that the meeting with Saint Peter has been postponed. At least for the next fifty years!
You just said that you and Marta watch competitions, which in itself is great news.
Well, after these experiments … I, we, lead. see progress. The most important thing is that we can have problems, simply because we may not have them anymore. Therefore, we rejoice and fight. We qualify and work.
My wife has already said she wants to go home. We just know we’ll be spending some time here. Then more about getting back to full fitness at home.
You both saw what Anże Lanisek did, who brought a cardboard figure to the podium in Planica …
You know what… I never imagined it that way. She gave me a lump in my throat and immediately texted Anzi about our reaction. Because Marta and I cried together. Now that we’re talking, he’s still hugging me.
The #skijumpingfamily hashtag didn’t turn out to be empty.
Absolutely! I really didn’t expect that. I told you that we compete on the hill, but outside of it … One wins, then the other, the athlete’s vein takes off, but you will always go and congratulate. I can get angry because I made a mistake, but not because someone else was better and I think he showed up all season.
This was the case with me, Halvor, Annie and Stefan, because the four of us were fighting for the top positions. On the hill we can eat sport, but we pass through the gate and we are together. No one thinks the other might have messed something up.
What Anże did… Respect, because it proves what kind of character he is and how big his heart is. My wife and I also saw a board on which everyone signs health wishes.
How do you feel? I ask because moments like these leave a lasting impression.
I can’t comment on that now. What I went through this week…the last two weeks will definitely leave an imprint on me. I will also have to work with a psychologist. Now it’s hard for me to describe what I feel.
I acted on tasks, driving on adrenaline. When it was over, it was hard to hold myself. It’s a little better now, but emotions and experiences will have to be dealt with in the near future.
Have you ever had moments where you looked for second thoughts and came back up the hill?
I’d run back up the hill while covering the contest, especially when my wife actually got up. I dealt with it a little bit of each day in all of this. Yes, to feel normal.
I spent the first week and a half in the hospital and didn’t move much from it. Now I’ve been home with the kids for a few days. We have family support, so they have the care and what to do. I am with my wife as often as I can.
Maybe it’s not the time for recaps, but you’ve never had such a crazy season. You were in control, but you also lost the podium in the general classification. You finished the season in a moment that no one will ever want to experience. Absolute swing.
Then there was the birth of a second daughter at the end of the 4-Hills-Tournament. The level of emotions was under the cork.
Fifteen people can share their experiences.
rest! Hence the realization that I will have to work through it myself, because it is not easy. I think I have the right people to help me. And if we consider the whole season in sporting terms, it was the best of my life. And I am glad of that, and at the same time grateful to everyone who helped me.
I made mistakes as in the past and I hope in the future. However, it was the best. It’s over as everyone knows, but it’s anything but sporty. I scored enough points to be fourth. It wasn’t anyone’s fault I had to finish early.
Today, jumping, which is a very important part of your life, is actually unimportant.
The case is so exceptional that it couldn’t be more. Jump went to the second or third plan. The values must be reset. At the same time, it’s not like I have to stop jumping. On the contrary, I hope to come back and be able to prepare normally or at least as usual.
Maybe on an individual basis? So I can continue to compete and enjoy the sport. And I have such an assumption that many times with my wife and daughters they will come to the hill to support me and enjoy my successes. I think so because I think it is possible.
You say that alternatives to normalcy are emerging. We don’t appreciate it, do we?
I wish for myself and my family that Marta would be nervous again, that I would leave again, that I would be absent again, etc. This means that it is fine, normal.
I realize that the work that lies ahead after leaving the hospital will require ups and downs and sacrifices, but we will manage the logistics. Our coach always said that the sport is very specific that you have to be able to adapt. Whether it’s windy or they’re making the start, racing at 7 in the morning or 10 in the evening, you have to adapt and keep going. It is in life too.
I hope we will be able to adapt, change something and live on. And normality … Sometimes you don’t appreciate it, maybe it happened to me too. It is a pity to find out for yourself that it is worth appreciating it every single day.
