Four Hills Championship: schedule and program.  When are the competitions?

My number one favorite is Stefan Kraft. The Austrian previously won the traditional and prestigious tournament in the 2014/15 season, and began the current World Cup series by winning four competitions. He was also the best in Engelberg before Christmas and is definitely at the top of the general classification.

The Germans, who have been waiting for victory in TCS for more than 20 years, are counting on a breakthrough. In the 2001/02 edition, Sven Hannawald was the best. Two years ago, Karl Geiger entered the tournament as the World Cup leader, but finished fourth. Now Geiger occupies fourth place in the overall standings, ahead of his compatriots – Andreas Fellinger and Pius Paschke.

Ryoyu Kobayashi, who won the TCS title in 2018/19 and 2021/22, will attack from the second row. In the current World Cup, the Japanese stood on the podium only once – it was third place in Klingenthal.

The Norwegians face a similar situation to the Poles, although not as bad, and their performance is also below expectations. Halvor Egner Granerud, the defending Crystal Ball and Golden Eagle, is only 13th in the World Cup.

42-year-old Swiss Simon Ammann will be making his 25th TCS appearance. Only the legendary Japanese Noriaki Kasai has more participation in this event – 28. The upcoming edition will be the 19th in Stoch's career.

Since the 1979/80 season, the TCS, known as the Grand Slam of skiing or the cycling equivalent of the Tour de France, has been included in the World Cup classification. The first Polish winner in 2001 was Adam Małysz.

On the occasion of the 45th edition, the KO system was introduced, where 25 pairs (according to the key: first out of 50, second out of 49, etc.) of the first scoring series are created based on the qualification results. Each winning pair and the five “lucky losers”, i.e. the players with the highest scores among the defeated pairs, will advance to the final.
