Re: Ski jumping


Larinto's injury is bad, the season's over for him... and we were already having hard time to find four good jumpers for team events.


Third FHT hill Innsbruck was good competition... except for Finns. But we still have Hautamäki 4th (almost even to 3rd) for the finale. No real chances to win the tournament anymore, but third in total would be nice; could even make second with perfect jumps.

Re:


I hate to hear of sportsmen being badly injured so I hope Larinto will be okay - and holding thumbs and crossing fingers for at least, at the bery least, a third place for Finland.

Re:


...and it's disaster. After three good hills the firsttimer Koivuranta barely fails to get on second round in last competition and ends up 23rd instead of relatively good places 10-15 he could've made with just couple more meters.

And Hautamäki, after rising to third place in total on first round, totally failed the last seventh jump of FHT and went down to seventh place in final results.


And today more bad news. We had Hautamäki and Olli Muotka (who replaced injured Larinto in last couple FHT hills) in Harrachov flying hill, but both failed pretty bad (though Muotka being a new kid, 18th place wasn't total loss).

Re: Ski jumping


This year's Four Hills Tournament began with a... I'm not sure if to call it circus or scandal.

I admit jury made bad mistakes and the decision wasn't entirely unreasonable, but basically what happened was that Austrians and Germans did bad on first round and then their people made jury to restart the whole thing, wiping away the results of original almost finished first round.

Re: Ski jumping


This season looks as bad as last few. Janne Happonen, who appeared to be our best man, broke his knee and returns next season, in best case.


Special thing about skijumping this year is new event: mixed team, two men and two women. Finland wont do well because we have only one good woman jumper.

Re: Ski jumping


Correction te earlier. This year isn't as bad as last few; it's worst ever.
At least the Four Hills Tournament is. We only have one man there, other were called home after failing to qualify.

And this will likely be how this winter goes.

Re: Ski jumping


Huge news: Janne Ahonen is once again coming back from retirement. It is uncertain if he'll compete this winter, but aims to be in next olympics.
2011 was the second time he quit; one of the reasons to his return are recent equipment rule changes that give less advantage to small and lightweight jumpers (Ahonen is over 180cm).

Re: Ski jumping


The Four Hills Tournament is on again, but not much to talk about for me.
I think this is first time the event is on pay TV.
And Finnish jumping has hit bottom. Once great champion Janne Ahonen is making another sad comeback after retiring twice (to be in olympics) and he's about 20th. The horrible thing is he's the best Finn, he or Koivuranta who originally competed in combined.

This used to be our best sport...
