Sports Information: Ski Jumping

BACKGROUND TO SKI JUMPING

 

Skiing is a recreational activity and competitive sport in which participants attach long runners (skis) to their footware and attempt to travel faster, jump further or manoeuvre better than their opponents. Snow boarding involves a board rather than skis and the sport has grown in popularity over the last decade.

 

THE SPORT TODAY

 

There is an annual tour of individual event championships for both men and women. The World Championships and Winter Olympics take place every four years. These sports are widely televised in Europe and the USA, and controlled by the International Ski Federation.
