Ukrainian jumper Yevhen Marusyak took 18th place in the penultimate personal start of the 2022/2023 World Cup. On the giant ski jump in Planica, the Ukrainian athlete flew 213.5 meters, 2.5 meters better than the national record of Ukraine, which was set by him the day before yesterday in qualifying.
18th place is the best result in the history of Ukraine at the World Cup. The previous record belonged to Alexander Lazarovich – 21st place in January 2010 in Sapporo, Japan.
Note that the competitions in Planica were held in one attempt. They were supposed to take place yesterday but were rescheduled to Saturday morning due to severe wind conditions on Friday.
For Marusyak, this is the final start at the World Cup this season. Today there will also be a team tournament in Planica, for which the Ukrainian team is not announced, and tomorrow – the final personal start of the season, in which only the top 30 in the overall World Cup take part.
Marusyak finished the season in 54th place in the overall World Cup standings with 21 points in the asset – this is the best result in the history of Ukraine.
The victory was won by the Austrian Stefan Kraft, who was ahead of the owner of the competition Anze Lanishek and the Pole Piotr Zhyla.
