Kobayashi seals Planica7 title to cap off fantastic campaign

Kobayashi’s victory caps a truly remarkable season that saw him demolish all of those before him and afterwards he was lost for words simply saying, “I cannot believe it.”
As well as winning the overall World Cup title and the Planica7 title he also won the Raw Air, Willingen Five and Ski Flying titles.
And of course he also won a historic Four Hills Grand Slam, just the third man to do so.
