Excited about Ljubno Author: Gian Franco Kasper, President, International Ski Federation (FIS)
Dear friends of skiing, following the success of women’s ski jumping at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec (CZE) and Oslo (NOR) in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and the women’s FIS Continental Cup series since the 2004/2005 season, we are excited to see the launch of the women’s FIS Ski Jumping World Cup, which will be presented by Viessmann this season.
Between 11 and 12 February 2012, the ladies’ inaugural World Cup season will have the great pleasure to stage a competition weekend in Ljubno, where they are guaranteed to enjoy the organizational experience and quality of top-class competition venues of the Slovenian Ski Association, a long-term active member of the international ski family. After hosting the women’s Continental Cup regularly since 2006, Ljubno will now join Planica as the second Slovenian venue to host a FIS Ski Jumping World Cup event.
On behalf of FIS, I wish all participants – and most importantly, the fans – great fun and a great ski jumping experience at the women’s FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Ljubno.
