Dear friends, It’s a great honor and a pleasure to address you once more again. This year we have the third edition of the Women’s World Cup in ski jumping and we will also see the ladies ski jumping competition for the first time ever on the Olympics in Sochi this year. Our sport discipline is still very young, but it is growing and is getting bigger also with help of the devoted organizers like in Ljubno. Women’s ski jumping is already a tradition in Ljubno, starting with Continental Cup competitions years ago and now for the third time as World Cup. I am grateful to the organizers in Ljubno and to the Slovenian Ski Association for their efforts in this small but upcoming and exciting discipline. We are also glad to see, the popularity of ski jumping is on a high level in Ljubno and in general in Slovenia. Competitions in Ljubno with strong effort of the organizers are attracting more and more spectators and I am convinced, this small and nice town on the banks of Savinja river and its passionate people will use the chance and follow the development in ski jumping also in the future. I wish you all the best for the competitions in Ljubno!
