Geezers in ski-jumping

Recommended Posts

I accidentally watched some ski-jumping after several years and was immensely cheered upon seeing Jane Ahonen still jumping. And Noriaki Kasai. Oh my.

Slovenians have a new excellent jumper, not even 18 yet. I bet he won't still be jumping when he's 40... I guess I'll have to come back to watching ski-jumping in 2039 and see if I was right.

Domen Prevc, 17. His big brother Peter Prevc dominated last season and was runner-up the two seasons before. This will be a devastating season for the competition.

I love winter sports. The Winter Olympics is my favourite competition. Though some of the sports are a bit bizarre. 

Ski Jumping - Let's throw myself off a big hill on wooden planks...

Luge - Let's slide down a twisty, dangerous tube on my backside on a tea tray and do it incredibly quickly...

I'm into Biathlon since many years. I plan my winter weekends around the races, but there is so much more. Luge, bob, skeleton, ski- and boarder-cross and so on. Plainly said, winter season means the tv is set on single-chanel mode :-D
