Welcome to the Nordic Opening | FIS Nordic Combined


We’re here in Ruka to have a great kick off for the start of our World Cup season with three competitions in a raw. I mean I love it and hate it here at the same time. It’s one of the most challeging hills, but as you can see it’s not even December and it looks like full time winter. If I can figure out a way to jump far, I’ll be very happy! Winter wonderland! That’s pretty much what Ruka is, every year when we get here it looks like winter. There’s always a lot of snow and cold temperatures, that’s how it should be so it’s always fun to have the first competition here. We’ve been here for almost two weeks, I feel ready for the World Cup, it’s good to be in winter and in this weather. I know that if I’m first I meet Santa Claus, so I need to be first. It’s a different atmosphere with all the Cross-Country skiers, also all the Ski Jumpers. I think it’s a really cool atmosphere to have all the Nordic disciplines at one venue. I think it’s a cool idea.
