The 20th round of the ski jumping men's World Cup was held in Willingen, Germany, the same place as the 17th round of the women's World Cup, where the Japanese team dominated the podium, on a large hill with a hill size of 147 meters.
Four players from Japan participated, of which Kobayashi, the ace, jumped 134.50 meters above the K point in the first time and placed 7th, 26.3 points behind the top.
In the second time, he caught a headwind that was advantageous for the jump and performed a big jump of 145m 50 that approached the size of the hill, marking a total of 252.3, moving up 5 places to 2nd place.
