History:

On February 12, 1879 the first competition "Husebyrennet" was organized by Christiana Skiklub on Kastellbakken at Oslo was hosted. Jon Hauge from Morgedal was winner of the competition and Olaf Haugan set up a new world record with 20.7 meters. During the practice ahead of the competition, he even jumped 22 meters, but this distanc was not recognized as official World Record. Two years later Sveinung Svalastoga managed to set a new World Record with 22 meters (again).
But then in 1891 this ski jumping hill renamed Husebybakken was given up, because in January 1892 5 km further north Holmenkollen was inaugurated, which is still today popularly used. In the place of former Husebybakken today a reminding bronze board shall keep the heritage of the origins of ski jumping.
