Additional information General
HISTORIC ACHIEVEMENT
In 2017/18 he became only the second ski jumper to win all four events of the Four Hills Tournament in a single season, following German Sven Hannawald, who achieved the feat in 2001/02. (fis-ski.com, 06 Jan 2018)

GRAND SLAM
In 2017 he became only the fifth person, after Matti Nykanen, Jens Weissflog, Espen Bredesen and Thomas Morgenstern, to complete the ski jumping Grand Slam of individual victories at the Olympic Winter Games, world championships, overall World Cup and Four Hills Tournament. Stoch completed the set by winning the 2016/17 Four Hills Tournament. (sport.pl, 07 Jan 2017)

BUSINESS OWNER
In 2015 he founded the clothing brand Kamiland. He and his wife also run the sports marketing agency Eve-nement. They also founded KS Eve-nement Zakopane with the aim of training young ski jumpers. "Watching these young jumpers gives me joy. Seeing their smiles after each jump is a beauty of the sport. It gave me a lot of positive energy and motivated me to look ahead instead of back." (eve-nement.com, 2018; Eurosport, 30 Nov 2017)

INFLUENCE OF MARRIAGE
He met his wife Ewa at a World Cup event in Planica, Slovenia, in 2006. "Ski jumping was the most important thing for me, but when I got married I realised that a lot of things are much greater. This understanding helped me achieve results. Marriage helped me look at things from a different perspective. If something doesn't work in competition, I always have someone to come back to, someone who loves me regardless of whether I win or come last."
