Ski flying history is being written in Vikersund. On Saturday, the ski jumpers tested the Norwegian airfield for the first time in training, and today at 10:00 a.m. they will have their first competition in the flights.
You will be tested in Vikersund in live broadcast on TV SLO 2 and MMC. The test series will start at 9.15 am.
This year, the FIS only listened to the jumpers’ desire to fly on skis. The first match is thus hosted by Vikersund, and the right to play in it was given to the 15 girls who were ranked best in total of the tour Raw Air. The test does not count for World Cup points, but it will count for the mentioned ranking.
It’s here in Ema Klinec, who also impressed in Saturday’s training, is in the best position. In the second series, as the first – Daniela Iraschko had already flown 200 meters 19 years ago in Kulm, but of course not in an official competition – she flew over the magical 200-meter mark when she landed at 203 meters.
Her third flight was exceptional, measuring as much as 221 meter. More meter the Canadian Alexandria was able to go further then Loutitt, but the current junior and members’ world champion started five places higher. In addition to Ema Klinec, Nika Križnar, last year’s winner of the tour, is also representing Slovenian colors at the first match Raw Air.
