The Winter Olympics are great for getting to know all kinds of international athletes. Like Polish skier Kamil Stoch, who is competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Although we’re definitely watching his events and in awe of his skill, what we really want to know is who Kamil Stoch, 30, is dating. You know, the important stuff.
If you’re into ski jumpers, you’re definitely out of luck, since Stoch has been married to Ewa Bilan since 2010. They met while they were both studying at a sports academy in high school. He was reportedly studying ski jumping and she was studying ju-jitsu. He joked to NBC that that was “part of the reason he was nice to her,” so he’s a good skier and a smart guy.
According to her Instagram account, she’s in Pyeongchang to root for her husband, though he doesn’t need a lot of good luck with his records. Although he has knee problems, according to NBC, Stoch is the guy to keep your eye on this year. His first time competing at the Olympics was back in 2006 in Torino, where he placed fifth in the team event and 16th and 26th in his individual events. He competed in 2010 and then took two gold medals in Sochi, so this is his year.
It better be, too, since according to NBC, “Stochmania” is taking over Poland already, despite the Polish Ski Federation’s best efforts to protect him from too much media exposure. “He’s very stable at a very high level,” Billy Demong, executive director of USA Nordic and 2010 Nordic combined Olympic gold medalist told NBC about Stoch’s fans. With all that love, and his wife there to support him, he’s destined to take home another medal this year.
