Planica, Ski Flying World Championships 2012

Tu pride flash

2012 competition was concluded in Planica, Slovenija on 24 - 25 February. Particularly exciting for the Slovenian home crowd was the great performance by the local ski champion, Robert Kranjec, who received the gold medal for the overall performance in 2012 World Cup championships. The atmosphere generated by the patriotic home crowd, that cheered thunderously and waved Slovenian flags was truly wonderful. Planica has truly come into its own in 2012 with the success of Slovenian ski jumpers, since it was designed by a Slovenian engineer between the two world wars, and was the first great ski jumping spot in the world for some time.
