Dawid Kubacki might not be the biggest name in ski jumping, but after a stunning summer campaign in 2017, he looks set to make a big impact in PyeongChang.

  • Name - Dawid Kubacki
  • Date of Birth - 12/03/1990
  • Place of Birth - Nowy Targ, Poland
  • Sport/Discipline - Ski jumping
  • Honours - World Championships: Gold x1, Bronze x1

Kubacki, 27, claimed five Grand Prix events during the summer season in 2017 to win the overall Grand Prix title.

Those performances came off the back of his first gold in major competition, as Poland won the team event at the World Championships in Lahti in March.

Kubacki had also won a bronze in the team event in the 2013 World Championships.

His Olympic record is rather less starry, amounting only to a 32nd-place finish in the normal hill in Sochi in 2014.

But he served notice over the summer that he is ready to challenge for medals in South Korea.
