In the 1970’s the Czechoslovak ski federation decided on common the project of the Czech Ing. Belonoznik and the Swiss Grasser to build the Čertak. After the o.k. of the FIS until 1979 at Čertak (in English devil’s mountain) the sixth ski flying hill on the world was created. At the same time next to it the large hill K120 was constructed and for this measure over 200,000 m³ of soil had to be removed.
In March 1980 the giant hill was opened during a ski flying week. In 1983 it had the first ski flying world championships with around 60,000 spectators. But in the following years the flying hill was criticized very much. Bad fallings were frequent and the air position at flying was to high with up to 12 m and so the FIS blocked the jumping facility. But this lack did not only concern this jump. Experts noticed at that time that a maximal air position of 5 m height is much safer for the jumpers and, however, large widths could be reached if the profile of a jump was adapted.
It was a fundamental realization in the way of building ski jumps and the up-coming V-style made profile changings necessary for nearly all jumps worldwide. Belonoznik reconstructed the flying hill from 1989 to ’92 according to newest standings, whereby the K-Point was changed on 185 m and a wind protection wall was installed. In 1996 Andreas Goldberger was the first one in an official competition to jump over the magic two 200 meter line on this jump with his 204 m.
In late summer 2009 floodlights were installed in order to be able to host further attractive competitions in the future on the Ski Flying WSC hill of 1983, 1992 and 2002 and the large ski jumping hill.
In preparation for the Ski Flying World Championships in 2014, the infrastructure around the hills was significantly improved already in 2012 and new spectator stands set up. Since then the ski jumping area with flying and large hill is called "adidas arena".

Mir ist bezüglich Modernisierungs-/ Umbauplänen nichts bekannt und ich habe auch Zweifel, ob die Skiflug-WM 2022 dort statt finden wird. Soweit ich weiß wird die WM erst im Sommer 2018 vergeben.

Umbau zur WM 2024

Weiß jemand wieso seid der WM nicht mehr geflogen wird?
Entspricht sie nicht mehr der FIS regeln? Wenn ja gibt es Umbau Pläne?

Skocznie obie nieoficjalnie mają status nieużywanej gdyż do buli zapadł się ratrak a zaplecze skoczni rownież nie jest w dobrym stanie. Ostatni skok na K125 oddał najprawdopodobniej Richard Freitag w niedzielnym konkursie w grudniu 2011 roku. Na mamcie ostatni lot był w drugiej serii MŚWL 2014 od tego czasu Adidas Arena jest publilcznym punktem widokowym :(

Record Morgenstern

Morgenstern jumped 214.5 m in training (round 2) on Friday 18, which was not counted as a fall and thus is considered a hill record. In the trial round on Saturday 19, he jumped 214.5 m again, but fell. Results see

Gregor Schlierenzauer sprang einmal 215,5m und stand den Sprung

*Neues Deutschland, 23.03.1992*

Japanersieg nach Abbruch
Harrachov (dpa). „Made in Japan"
heißt das neue Gütesiegel im nordischen
Skispsort. Nach dem Olympia-
Gold von Albertville in der
Kombinationsstaffel holte Noriaki
Kasai am Sonntag erstmals den
Weltmeistertitel der Skiflieger
nach Japan. Dem Nachfolger von
Dieter Thoma (Hinterzarten) genügten
seine Bestweiten vom
Samstag (zweimal 182 Meter/392,5
Punkte), da die Wettkämpfe am
Sonntag in Harrachov nach einem
sensationellen Flug des Sehönwalders
Christof Duffner abgebrochen
werden mußten. Der 20 Jahre alte
Schwarzwälder sprang-auf die vom
Polen Pjotr Fijas 1987 vorgelegte
Weltrekord-Weite von 194 Metern,
stürzte aber bei der Landung. Danach
sollte der erste Durchgang
mit verkürztem Anlauf neu gestartet
werden, was aber von starkem
Wind und Schneefällen verhindert

Duffner mystery - 194m-Harrachov'92?

Does someone knows the real truth about 194m long jump in Harrachov.

1. Some people still claiming he actually fell at +200m?
2. That he fell at 194m?
3. That he also tied WR 194m in som previous jump?

What is the official truth?

There is no video of this jump.
