Paweł Słowiok was the best among the Poles, finishing 22nd, more than 2 minutes and 35 seconds behind Frenzel.
Two other Poles, Szczepan Kupczak and Adam Cieślar, were 39th and 42nd respectively among the 47 finishers.
Japan’s Akito Watabe took the silver, and Austria's Lukas Klapfer claimed the bronze.
