Final competitions will take place today in the RusSki Gorki Ski Jumping Center.
During the competition, athletes will compete for another set of medals in Nordic combined, taking place at the start of the team championship.
To date, six sets of medals have already been competed for in the RusSki Gorki Ski Jumping Center, four of them in ski jumping and two in Nordic combined. And it was in the RusSki Gorki Ski Jumping Center where the first Olympic gold medal in women's ski jumping was contested.
During the Olympic starts, qualifications and training sessions, athletes have been able to check the quality of the jumps and runs.
After the first training session, two-time Sochi Olympic champion in the individual championships Kamil Stoch of Poland said:
"This is the kind of hill you need to practice on and get to know. To do this I took part in the qualification round and I think I discovered all the secrets of this hill and hope nothing will surprise me tomorrow."
This factor helped Stoch win two gold medals at the Olympic Games in Sochi.
After his victory in the ski jumping qualifying round, Austrian Michael Hayboeck spoke about his impressions of the slopes:
"I like this hill; we are very familiar, so we are a good team."
Friendly relations with the ski jump enabled the Austrian national team to compete for the silver medal in the team competition.
After the training, Norwegian two-time champion Mikko Kokslien said:
"It's holding up pretty well. They [the venue staff] have been doing a good job and I actually prefer it slushy anyway, so it could be an advantage."
In his statements, American two-time champion Brian Fletcher analyzed the features of the RusSki Gorki Ski Jumping Center in Sochi:
"The rhythm of the hill is different. The in-run and the landing are both flatter than most hills. It kind of throws off your senses a little bit, but that's what makes it exciting - the challenge."
After the first training sessions, Austrian ski jumper Daniela Iraschko-Stolz expressed her admiration for the descent, where she managed to win the silver medal in the Olympic Games:
"It's one of the best hills ever. I love that hill."
RusSki Gorki Jumping Center is located in the village of Esto-Sadok on the northern slope of the ridge Aibga.
The hill, at the juncture of two ridges, was specially chosen by international experts, so that the ski jumps would fit in naturally with the surrounding landscape, and so that the jumpers would be afforded protection from gusting side-winds.
The center consists of the most modern Olympic ski jumps, K-95 and K-125, and the spectator stands have a capacity of 7,500. RusSki Gorki Jumping Center has already staged such competitions as the FIS Ski Jumping Continental Cup (July 2012), a Stage of the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup (December 2012) and a Stage of the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup (January-February 2013). After the Olympic competitions, the venue will be used for competitions in ski jumping.
