At Murau in Styria the very first ski jumping hill was build up in 1933 with Thurnhofer-Schanze. Then in 1936 Gumpold-Schanze was inaugurated, on March 8 Norway’s Bjarne Karlsen won with 56 meters.
After Wolrd War II there were two attempts to get Nordic Skiing WSC on Mur river, but these failed. Instead in 1978 and 1982 the Gumpoldschanze was host of Junior WSC competitions in Murau, on 1982-03-03 Ernst Vettori won the title in his home-country there on the former 70 meter ski jump. Later the K85 and afterwards also Hans-Walland-Großschanze were hosts of World Cup competitions of specialized jumpers and Nordic combined. The only ski jumping World Cup in 1994 was won by Noriaki Kasai. The last combined World Cup took place in 1996, winner was Mario Stecher and Bjarte Engen Vik jumped the last hill record.
Today both larger ski jumping hills are out of order. The Schülerschanzen were dilapidating, but in 2005 even the K35 and K20 were covered with new plastic mattings. In 2007 the inrun of K60 was made out of concrete and the profile renewed. If possible also this jump will be covered with plastic mattings.

Laut hat Noriaki Kasai und nicht Takanobu Okabe den Weltcup 1994 gewonnen.

4ST Murau

Das war natürlich ein Fehler, das Springen fand wie immer in Innsbruck statt :-)

4 Schanzentournee

Ich wag ja stark zu bezweifeln, dass 1954 die 4 Schanzentournee in Murau Station machte...

Gab es an der Schanze einen Lift?

Laut Ergebnisliste hat keiner von beiden den Rekord auf der K35 egalisiert

Falsch information

Entschuldigen sie.
der Schanzenrekord wurde von Thomas Schwaiger (AUT, ESV Mürzzuschlag) gesprungen.
ich bitte vielmals um entschuldigung.

Hill Size

On older hills, that had a "jury distance", but are not homologated anymore and don't have a "hill size", the HS stated corresponds to the former jury distance. I think handling it this way makes sense...

Hill Size

Taka mała sugestia, jest tutaj wpisany punkt HS na obu największych skoczniach, ale czy powinien w ogóle być wpisany? Przecież pojęcie to wprowadzono do użytku około 5 lat temu, a skocznie pozostają nieużywane sporo dłużej. Rozumiem, że tutaj dystans HS zastąpił stare pojęcie 'Jury distance' na obu skoczniach, ale jak wiadomo te dwa punkty nie zawsze się pokrywały. Więc nie wiem czy powinno to działać wstecz. Dotyczy to oczywiście wszystkich skoczni, które są zniszczone i nieużywane wcześniej niż powstało pojęcie 'Hill Size'. Co o tym sądzicie?
