History:

Algeria was a French colony in northern Africa before World War I. In the capital Alger the first ski jumping hill was built already in 1906. In this year there was held the first ski jumping competition, probably the first in whole Africa! Winner was Alfred R. Henriksen from Norway. He stay in Algeria for the next 6 years (until 1912) and won all ski jumping competitions in Alger with jumps about 16 to 18 meters.
In 1933 other ski jumper from Norway - Ragnar Ørmen jumped there 28 metres.
The ski jump in Alger was probably the only one in Africa and was probably destroyed before World War II.

Tutaj jest błąd, powinno być przed II wojną światową (1939-1945), a nie przed pierwszą (1914-1918).
