Last Friday in Zurich, during the FIS meeting, the representatives of the federation talked about the future of ladies ski-jumping. Starting from March next year, it could be possible to see the «flying-girls» on the big hill and the premiere may take place on the wonderful hill of Holmenkollen, one of the main theaters in ski-jumping.
Until now, the international races for ladies in ski-jumping have taken place only on normal hills and even at national level there aren’t so many races on the large hill. Nevertheless, the proposal has received a warm welcome by FIS. Lars Brede Braathen, sports director for Norway, seemed very satisfied with the decision of FIS: «This is a very important step for the development of the entire discipline and now there is a possibility that we will see also some large hill competitions in the World Cup and World Championships schedule».
