Having the most problems is the Austrian team, where the nine positive jumpers include Stefan Kraft, the world record holder Four of them have since returned negative tests, including Kraft.
The decision on who will represent Austria is expected to be taken by Wednesday. This time, the role of favourite will be played by Halvor Egner Granerud, who has won the last three World Cup events.

Slovenian "eagles" have eight medals from world championships, but none from Planica Slovenian ski jumpers have so far won eight medals at the Ski Flying World Championships, but none of them comes from Planica, which will this year host the event for the seventh time after , , , , and Many unknowns about competition as coronavirus affects ski jumping Ski jumpers have not been spared the coronavirus pandemic in the new season, and Ski Jumping World Cup director Sandro Pertile will miss the event as he has tested positive.
It was replaced by a new instep lightweight concrete facility. Again and again the outrun was dug deeper and the hill profile adapted, so after the last conversion for WSC distances of more than m are now possible.
This meant: new inrun track, new inclined elevator, reconstruction of the take-off table, new landing area.

On the same day, and in a span of the next four, Matti Hautamäki set a hat-trick of consecutive world records of When interviewed soon after the event, Hautamäki said that "The longer one stays in the air, the more fun it is.
In , the venue continued its dominance of ski flying when the world record was shattered four times on the same day. This is all getting too dangerous now!
He was stretchered away and able to wave to the crowd, and returned later in the event to step onto the podium for winning the World Cup.
In , Ahonen revealed that the consequences of not reining in the jump prematurely in the way he did would have likely resulted in broken legs, or worse:  [nb 10].
In the initial flight phase I thought, 'Oh damn, now we're going far. This is certain to be a new world record. This is really not going to end well.
I'm going to break my legs at the least. In the aftermath of the Planica event and following numerous near-flat ground landings, it became clear that ski flying had once again outgrown an older hill and needed enlarging in the years to come.
In , almost immediately after the conclusion of the World Cup season, talks were under way to upgrade the hill in Vikersund.
Anticipating a renewed world record rivalry, organisers in Vikersund welcomed the healthy competition with Planica.
This served as a preparation event for the Ski Flying World Championships , which went on to draw a crowd of 60, Between and , upgrades from K to K were also completed in Kulm, Planica, and Oberstdorf.
Harrachov remains the only hill, at K, to have not been upgraded in any major way since the s. Although the new hills are much larger than ever before, they generally feature longer and less steeply angled slopes, designed purely for the V-style and with the knowledge of 80 years' worth of world record progression.
Inrun tables have also been placed further back from the knoll and flight curves made shallower in order to allow athletes to glide more efficiently and safely along the contour of the slope.
This has significantly reduced such precarious heights over the knoll as was the case in the early s and prior: in that era, athletes using the parallel style would jump in a more upward trajectory off the table, reaching vast heights but at the expense of distance; and rather than glide, they instead plummeted towards the slope.
At the end of the World Cup season, following Prevc and Fannemel's world records, then-FIS race director Walter Hofer stated that the limit had been reached on the newest hills, and that no further expansion to their size was expected in the near future.
I knew the ramp in Vikersund can jump pretty darn far. It was an incredible flight and it was important that I was able to do it.
During the flight, I thought "it's now or never". Although his achievement initially came under scrunity, as it appeared that he touched the snow with his backside as he was forced to squat down on essentially flat ground,   slow-motion replay analysis confirmed that his landing was valid with only millimetres to spare.
Kamil Stoch would set a hill record of Unlike ski jumping, which can be contested in the summer on specially equipped hills with plastic surfaces, ski flying is strictly a winter sport and not part of the Winter Olympics ; no world records have therefore been set in the history of the Olympics.
Rather than being considered a separate sport on its own, ski flying is essentially an offshoot of ski jumping involving larger hills and longer jump distances.
You're going faster and flying higher. Basically, it's just a real big jump. The main difference between ski flying and ski jumping pertains to hill design, as mandated by the FIS.
Since , there have only been five of these hills in Europe and one in the US. In the landing zone, the angle of the hill is between Seven ski flying hills in total were constructed between and , with subsequent renovations being made in the decades since.
Six are currently in use, but only five of them as flying hills. There have been a number of proposed ski flying hills, most of which never reached the construction stage.
Two were announced in in Finland, in Kemijärvi and Ylitornio , but neither project was realized. In the US, plans are ongoing to reopen Copper Peak , the only ski flying hill built outside of Europe.
It would remain the smallest of the active hills, but the only one equipped for summer events and out-of-competition training. The most prestigious event in ski flying is the World Championships , which was first held in Planica in and has been staged biennially since , in a rotating schedule at all hills except Ironwood.
A team competition was introduced in , in which medals are also awarded. Ski flying events outside of the World Championships are a regular feature on the Ski Jumping World Cup calendar, usually occurring on two or three hills; unusually, the season staged events on four hills one as part of the World Championships, three in the World Cup.
Because athletes almost always participate in both disciplines, points scored in ski flying also count towards the Ski Jumping World Cup standings.
From to , and from onwards, an additional title and trophy for the Ski Flying World Cup has been awarded at the end of each season to the overall points winner of solely ski flying competitions, even if only one took place.
David Goldstrom, longtime commentator for Eurosport , has described the appearance of ski flying as that of "flying like a bird".
The FIS race director , assistant race director , and jury the latter consisting of the chief of competition , technical delegate , and assistant technical delegate  are a core team of personnel in charge of an entire event.
Sandro Pertile has been the FIS chief race director of ski flying and ski jumping events since Spectators at the venue watching from large screen displays , as well as viewers watching on TV, are able to see instant replays and on-screen graphics provided by the FIS, which display a multitude of detailed information.
A ski jump or ski flight begins from the inrun , a ramp structure at the top of the hill in the form of a tower, or set naturally against the hill formation.
Access to this area is via ski lift or on foot. The inrun is Near the top of the inrun, there is a start gate — a metal or wooden beam — on which an athlete sits and awaits their signal to jump via a set of traffic lights green, amber, and red.
An athlete may enter the gate when amber is shown. If red is shown after an athlete has entered the gate, the jury will have deemed the wind conditions to be unfavourable for a safe jump.
The athlete must then carefully exit the gate as they had entered it and await another opportunity to jump. Failure to dismount the gate within ten to fifteen seconds of being shown a red light, or jumping without having been given the signal to go, will disqualify the athlete.
In ski flying there are ten separate wind sectors that are measured along the hill, with five in a staggered arrangement on each side; in ski jumping there are seven or less sectors.
In especially tricky conditions, athletes may sometimes be forced to exit and re-enter the gate multiple times before they are cleared to jump. If conditions are normal and a green light is shown, the athlete's coach — who is situated in a coaches' section lower down the inrun with a flag in hand — gives them the final signal to go;  coaches may sometimes have to whistle or give a shouted confirmation in low-visibility conditions.
To begin descending the inrun, they drop down from the gate to a crouching position. Speed is rapidly picked up within seconds via built-in tracks, made from porcelain or ceramic , into which the skis are slotted.
The athlete's streamlined crouch minimises air resistance along the inrun,  and a further effort is made to reduce friction by not allowing the skis which have wax applied to them to bump too much against the sides of the tracks.
Inrun speed is measured from the table using a radar gun. No ski poles are used, and no assistance from others such as being pushed from the gate is allowed.
In heavy snow conditions the tracks can become clogged up, which reduces inrun speed and may cause an unpredictable descent for athletes.
Event personnel standing by the sides of the inrun are often assigned to use leaf blowers to prevent the tracks from clogging up with snow.
Moments before being launched off the table, the athlete undergoes a sudden increase in g-force due to the curvature — or 'compression' — of the bottom of the inrun.
They then initiate a very powerful, explosive jump that requires great leg strength. This highly aerodynamic "V" essentially turns the athlete into a 'flying wing', and all of this takes place in only a tenth of a second  before the transition is then "closed"  and the flying position maintained until the end of the jump.
Timing is crucial and there is next to no margin for error at this phase: a jump that begins too early or late off the table can mean the difference between an excellent, average or poor effort.
The most challenging stage of the takeoff is carrying the speed forwards from the inrun with sufficient height over the knoll , and achieving the correct trajectory down the hill.
On modern ski flying hills the table is placed considerably far back from the knoll, so as to reduce the steepness of the flight curve.
Skilled athletes are able to aggressively 'snap' into the transition so as to clear the knoll with ease, thereby allowing them to focus completely on using their flying technique to maximise distance further down the hill.
Those of the highest skill level can also consistently compensate for a lack of inrun speed with perfect timing off the table and an excellent transition.
However, there is a fine line between aggressiveness and over-aggressiveness at takeoff. This excessive angle of attack causes the skis to act more as a spoiler than an efficient aerodynamic device to cut through the air,  resulting in more height than distance; a flight curve that is too steep or shallow is unfavourable.
In a well-executed jump, athletes will spend several seconds longer airborne than in ski jumping — up to five seconds more — which requires a different level of skill in order to sustain flight for a longer period, and showcases how the role of aerodynamics is magnified in ski flying.
Not all athletes who excel in ski jumping are able do so in ski flying see the section on specialists , and it can be difficult for them to hone their skills in the latter due to the hills being off-limits when competitions are not staged.
Once the athlete has taken flight, characteristics similar to that of a glider come into force. The heel of the boot is then attached to a wedge on the ski using a hinged binding peg and backup strap,  allowing the athlete to lean forward into their preferred aerodynamic position and spread the skis wide apart.
Much like aircraft wings, the skis are flexible to an extent, resulting in them bending and vibrating significantly upon takeoff.
Maintaining stability in the air is paramount: a loss of balance, or a differential pressure under the skis, can lead to disaster see list of ski flying accidents.
A few athletes have a tendency to drift over to one side of the hill, a technical defiency which invariably shortens their jump distance.
Skilful use of headwind and thermal updrafts along various sections of the hill is used to generate additional lift , creating pressure under the oversized skis and enabling athletes to effectively ride on a 'cushion of air'.
A reasonable amount of headwind is favourable to a long jump as it has the effect of keeping the athlete aloft and delaying their descent back onto the hill.
Conversely, despite providing somewhat of a boost in speed,  a tailwind is unfavourable and tends to shorten a jump by pushing the athlete downwards towards the hill prematurely.
In particular, a tailwind forms one of the most challenging aspects of clearing the knoll and achieving a competitive distance. A crosswind is just as challenging, as it can create dangerous instability in the air.
Ideal headwind conditions can allow an athlete to 'catch' an updraft or 'bump'  against it at various points of the hill — which always involves some degree of luck  — and use it to glide even further, making for an impressive visual effect for audiences.
To further aid athletes in gliding as aerodynamically as possible, they wear a one-piece fabric bodysuit more similar to a wingsuit than a ski suit.
If the level is exceeded, that athlete is disqualified due to an equipment violation. The ultimate aim is to land on, or ideally surpass, a line marked across the hill called the K-point , critical point , or calculation line.
In order to attain the most points from the style judges, athletes strive for a Telemark landing: instead of landing with simply both feet together a two-footed landing , one foot is planted clearly in front of the other without sliding the skis , the other knee bent, both feet held no more than four ski widths' apart, and the body held stable with a straight back and arms outstretched.
This pose must be maintained until the outrun — a line at the very end of the hill, where the slope has fully flattened out — is reached.
Considerably more points are lost if a landing fails before the outrun line, such as falling over or touching the ground with any part of the body except the feet.
When the hill begins to flatten out, it becomes increasingly difficult to make a Telemark landing.
Jump distance is measured from the edge of the table to the placement of landing by increments of 0. This is done using electronic and video monitoring systems together with event personnel assigned to observe jumps by the side of the hill; the latter are known as distance measurers  or backup judges , who are present in case the monitoring technology fails.
Both sides of the hill are also marked highly visible in red to indicate the landing zone , while the point beyond the hill size is marked in green on the sides.
The current leading jump — the distance 'to beat' — is laser-projected as a bright green line across the hill, and is visible to everyone including TV viewers.
Ski flying uses the same points system as ski jumping, but with two differences. For every metre beyond the K-point, bonus points are awarded.
In ski jumping, a metre has a value of 2 points for normal hills and 1. These bonus points are then added to those received from reaching the K-point.
Failing to reach the K-point instead results in a deduction of points from the base mark to the same aforementioned values.
Another crucial element of scoring are style points awarded by the judges. A new set of judges are selected for every competition.
They each award points up to 20, in increments of 0. Notably, both the highest and lowest judges' scores are omitted to cancel out any discrepancy, giving a maximum of 60 style points.
However, such a scenario is only an example and not representative of the highly variable nature of the sport.
Gaining one or more scores of 20 is very rare, and five is extremely rare. Generally, a good to excellent jump can be expected to receive judges' scores of 18 to While a lower score for style puts an athlete at the risk of being less competitive, this may be mitigated or even nullified if they have attained substantial bonus points for distance.
For the Ski Flying World Cup season , beginning in Oberstdorf, and from thereon used at all ski flying and ski jumping events, a supplementary points system was introduced.
This system takes into account the wind speed and direction during each jump, as well as mid-round start gate adjustments, in order to enable a more fair contest.
The amount of deduction or addition is calculated via linear coefficient using complex instrumentation which analyses the wind conditions at the time of a jump,   and the value of the points themselves are in minimum increments of 0.
The second aspect of the compensation system involves the start gate position.
