World Ski Flying Championships Planica 2010

 


The valley beneath the Poncas will host the World Ski Flying Championships from 18-21 March 2010. The competition will begin with qualifying on Thursday, 18 March, and the opening ceremony in Kranjska Gora at 7 pm on the same day. On Friday and Saturday the competitors will compete for the title of World Champion, with the team competition featured on Sunday. A superb accompanying programme will take place in both Planica and Kranjska Gora.

Planica is considered the cradle of ski jumping and ski flying. Its history is filled with countless stories of athletic success and failure. The first international competition in Planica was held all the way back in 1934, when Norwegian Birger Ruud won with a jump of 92 metres. The milestones have continued to fall by the wayside in Planica for the past 75 years, including the first jump over 100m, by Austrian Sepp Bradl, and the first jump over 200m by the Finn Toni Nieminen. The current record at Planica has been held since 2005 by Norwegian ski jumper Bjoern Einar Romoeren, with a flight of 239 metres.

The FIS Ski Flying World Championships return to the “scene of the crime” from 18 to 21 March 2010. A lot has changed since 1972, but Planica still commands fear and respect from competitors and visitors alike, as well as all those who follow the sporting holiday on television and radio.
 
Preparations for this year’s event are in full swing. The flying hill will also undergo a partial renovation for the first time in several years. The landing area will be expanded and a new chairlift will be installed, which will bring the competitors to the top of the highest ski jump in the world.
