Schlierenzauer's winless drought continues

>>

Gregor Schlierenzauer's (AUT) last individual World Cup win came in Lillehammer on 7 December 2013.

>>

Since then, Schlierenzauer has competed in 16 individual World Cup events without a victory, the second longest winless drought of his career. From March 2010 to February 2011, he had a winless streak of 18 consecutive individual World Cup competitions.

>>

Austrian jumpers as a whole have not won any of the last 11 individual World Cup competitions since Thomas Diethart's victory in Bischofshofen on 6 January. It's Austria's longest individual World Cup winless streak since a run of 30 straight events without a victory from January 2005 to February 2006.

>>

Schlierenzauer has only two individual World Cup victories this season with five individual World Cup events remaining, his lowest victory total in a single season (excluding 2005/06, when he only competed in one event).

>>

His lowest win total in any other season was three in his injury-interrupted 2010/11 campaign. His lowest win total in a full season was five in 2006/07 and 2011/12.

>>

Schlierenzauer has never won in Kuopio. His only individual World Cup podium there was second place in March 2008.

>>

Schlierenzauer's third place on Sunday in Lahti was the 86th individual World Cup podium of his career. He is third on the all-time list, but there aren't enough events left for him to catch second-placed Adam Malysz (POL, 92) this season.

 

Stoch, Poles can equal national podium record

>>

Polish jumpers have made 13 World Cup podiums in individual events this season – courtesy of Kamil Stoch (10), Jan Ziobro (2) and Krzystof Biegun (1).

>>

The record for most individual World Cup podiums by Polish jumpers in one season is 14, set in 2000/01 and 2001/02. Of course, in both of those seasons, all podiums were courtesy of Adam Malysz.

>>

Stoch's win in Lahti on Sunday was his fifth World Cup victory of this season and his seventh win of the season including his two Olympic titles. If he records his eighth victory of the season in Kuopio, he will have won as many times this season as in all previous seasons combined (WC, WCh, OWG). He won three times in 2010/11, twice in 2011/12 and three times in 2012/13.

>>

With 12 career individual World Cup wins, Stoch is equal with Andreas Kofler (AUT) and Dieter Thoma (FRG/GER). If he wins in Kuopio, he will reach 13 and equal Horst Bulau (CAN) and Armin Kogler (AUT). Stoch can be second man to win back-to-back WCs in Kuopio

>>

Stoch won in Kuopio last season and can join Martin Schmitt (GER) as the only men to win consecutive events at the Finnish resort. Schmitt won two in a row in March and November 1999 as part of his four total wins in Kuopio.

>>

With Schmitt's recent retirement, there are no active jumpers with more than one World Cup victory in Kuopio. 

>>

Schmitt, Malysz (2) and Matti Hautemӓki (FIN, 2) are the only jumpers who won more than one World Cup event in Kuopio.

>>

Of the jumpers competing on Tuesday, the only ones to have won in Kuopio before are Stoch, Simon Ammann (SUI) and Ville Larinto (FIN).

>>

Ammann has won four individual World Cup events in Finland and could equal Ahonen and Malysz on five with a victory in Kuopio.
