In the upcoming 2023-24 season, Granerud is aiming to win his third overall World Cup trophy, making him the fourth man to achieve this feat. The 27-year-old dominated last year’s competition, winning six more titles than his closest rival. He will be facing stiff competition from Poland’s Dawid Kubacki, a two-time world champion, who is looking to improve upon his fourth-place finish from last season and challenge Granerud for the title.
Austrian veteran Stefan Kraft, last year’s runner-up, 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 ones to watch in the upcoming competition.
Switzerland’s Simon Ammann, a four-time Olympic champion, will be competing in his 26th World Cup season. This adds another layer of excitement to the competition as he tries to secure another championship title. Additionally, the Polish duo of Zyla and Kubacki are favored to win the men’s large hill super team event after taking home the inaugural competition in Lake Placid last year.
