The next Nordic World Ski Championships in 2015
will be held in Falun (SWE). For ski jumping in
Sweden this is not only an important goal, this
major event also increases the chances of a more
Carl Nordin, one of the hopes of the hosts in the
ski jumping events at the World Championships, already
noticed a positive development.
"The World Championships on home snow have
already had a great impact on Swedish Ski Jumping.
The Swedish Ski Association has increased their
investment and, overall, the discipline enjoys greater
public attention. It seems that itТs slowly moving
in the right direction", the 23-year-old said
in an interview published on falun2015.com.
An important step for ski jumping in Sweden will
already happen in the near future: The new hills
in Falun will be opened. "It will be fantastic
to have a hill for international competitions here
in Sweden. That will facilitate our work incredibly.
I plan to train in Falun regularly so it will indeed
be my home hill when the World Championships in
Falun take place."
But Carl Nordin has set high goals for himself also
apart from Falun 2015. "We need to remain humble,
I have recently changed my technique. But the goal
is to establish myself among the best in the world.
I know that I have the ability, but I need to take
it step-by-step", said Nordin, who often trained
in Trondheim (NOR) this summer with the new head
coach Trond Joeran Pedersen.
The first international competition on the new hill
in Sweden will be the men's World Cup in Falun late
February, followed by a Continental Cup and a ladies'
World Cup in March.
