Too windy in Kuusamo: Training
and Qualification canceled on Thursday
Too windy in Kuusamo - FIS
After the turbulent World Cup opening in Klingenthal
last weekend, the ski jumpers also had to deal with
difficult conditions on the first day in Kuusamo.
Strong wind at the Rukatunturi-hill forced the jury
to postpone the start of the official training and
the qualification before it was finally decided
at about 6:00 pm CET that ski jumping would not
be possible on Thursday.
The official training and the qualification shall
now be held before the first competition on Friday.
Training shall start at 1:00 pm CET (2:00 pm local
time), followed by the qualification. The competition
will then start at 4:00 pm CET as originally planned.
