At the first and only summer Grand-Prix this year, the Polish jumpers were able to take advantage of their home crowd at the Adam-Malysz-Hill in Wisla. On both days Dawid Kubacki won.

Due to the current corona-situation, the ski jumping weekend in Wisla is the only international competition this summer. In front of 999 spectators, the athletes were able to compete for the first time after the abrupt end of the season. The Polish ski jumpers demonstrated their outstanding form. On Friday Kamil Stoch won the prologue, which was sponsored by the Polish TV, in front of Dawid Kubacki and the Austrian Phillip Aschenwald.

On Saturday, Kubacki was able to prevail before Stoch. In adverse weather conditions, Piotr Zyla jumped on the podium as the third pole. The 19-year-old Tomasz Pilch completed the Polish success. Stefan Hula also made it to the top 10 with sixth place. Surprisingly, two Swiss were also among the top 10, with Simon Amman (5.) and Gregor Deschwanden (7.). Moritz Baer was the best German in 10th place David Siegel, who made his comeback after his crash in Zakopane in January 2019, was 27th.

Also, on Sunday, Wisla were colored in white-red. As the day before, Kubacki, Stoch and Zyla secured first, second and third places in front of their home audience. Philipp Aschenwald (6.), Daniel Huber (8.) and newcomer David Haagen (10.) also ensured an Austrian success. With Killian Peier (5.) and Gergor Deschwanden (9.) again two Swiss finished in the Top 10. Martin Hamann was the best German in 15th place.
