A new chapter in the story of Slovenian women's ski jumping
Last season, Slovenian women's ski jumping surpassed all expectations and goals, as the Slovenian jumpers won historic medals and warmed the hearts of their fans on the renovated ski jump in Ljubno.This year, the girls are facing new challenges and optimistically looking to the future.The primary goals for Ljubno have been accomplished.Nowthey want to continue this Slovenian women's ski jumping fairy tale by reaching new and even higher goals.
“On the international scale, the competition in Ljubno is the most spectacular FIS Ski Jumping World Cup Ladies event,”states the Olympic Committee of Slovenia on its website.This can be attributed to the renovated ski jump and even more so to the people of Ljubno, who with their effort and persistence, as well as significant financial means, contributed to a modern ski jumping centre and an excellent organisation of the event. Besides that, Ljubno has enchanted Slovenian and foreign visitors alike with its local cuisine, its tourism, and its cultural riches.
Last year, the Slovenian ski jumpers paid tribute to their fans, supporters, and the people of Ljubno in the best possible way as they secured their first victory in FIS Ski Jumping World Cup Ladies on the renovated Ljubno ski jump.This victory and two additional podium positions were witnessed by 20 thousand people on Valentine’s Day weekend.
After the event in Ljubno, Lillehammer hosted the European Junior Olympics, where Ema Klinec won, while Maja Vtič embellished the season with the 3rd place in the World Cup 2015/2016 standings.But our ski jumpers did not rest on their laurels.They stepped on the podium during the FIS Cup summer events, scored excellent results in the Grand Prix summer events and in the Continental Cup competitions.
