Medvedev visits Olympic ski jumps of 2014

on 2011-08-27

There is good progress on the ski jumping hill construction works in Russia. Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev just inspected the hills for Sochi 2014 and a FIS delegation reviewed the state of construction works at Chaykovsky.

On last Tuesday Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev visited the construction sites of the Olympic sports venues for the Games 2014 at Krasnaya Polyana valley near Sochi. First he made a helicopter tour over the area of the ski jumping hills at Esto-Sadok and was entusiatsic acoording to "The site looks rather impressive, from the helicopter you'll get a clear view of the size and the challenges of the project. From what I see, a good job is being done here to the date and the venue promises to be looking great."

Although the works are difficult due to soft terrain of the site and at the moment the foundations for the inrun tower are placed and they are set up, the ski jumping facility with the ski jumps HS 105 and HS 140, as well as the cross-country and biathlon center, should be completed by 2012.

On the completely new-constructed "Snezhinka" ski jumping complex at Chaykovskiy the first Continental Cup of Nordic combined is already scheduled for February 2012 and the works are on full speeds now. The progress on the five hills from K20 to K125 was just checked by a FIS inspection lead by Finnland's Pekka Hyvärinen also this week.

In the last weeks the concreting of landing hills was done and they will get plastic covered soon. Additionally the inrun structures, which were already set up long time ago, still have to be completed and equipped with inrun trails etc. in order to the ready for jumping in record-breaking time by end of this year.
