Even though the new ski-jumping hill ‘New Holmenkollen Fyr’ in Oslo designed by the Danish JDS Architects is not fully completed, some jumps will be held on 13th and 14th of March. It is a trial test before the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships next year in Oslo, 24th of February – 6th March 2011.
“On the 3rd of March, Annette Sagen became the first official ski jumper to jump 106.5 meters during the opening ceremony of the Skijump, which set a new Holmenkollen jump record. From the 20 ski jumpers taking part of the opening ceremony, Rune Vetla, a local ski jumper had the longest jump at 141 meters, breaking and currently holding the record at Holmenkollen hill!”
After this weekend’s event, JDS Architects will continue the remaining work on the completion plans until 2011.
