The fact that the career of ski jumping legend Noriaki Kasai is unique is now once again demonstrated by another award.
Guiness World Records awarded the 47-year-old Japanese for the most individual starts in the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup. The Japanese competed in 569 individual jumping competitions between 1988 and 2020. And the legend would like to jump further to extend his record.
But the award is not the first honour in the Guiness World Record book. Kasai has already received awards for his eight Olympic and 13 World Cup participations in the past.go back
The preparations for the winter are on and the ski jumpers are already training again on the hills - but it still takes time until the official World Cup start at the end of November. We want to use the time to take a look at the hidden talents of the jumpers. What do the athletes actually do besides competitive sports? Which star is also responsible for the Olympic victory of another athlete? And who almost made the night clubs insecure? Here are three, more or less “secret" talents of the ski jumping stars.
The dates for the season 2021/2021 are fixed. The competition calendar was finalized and presented. Fans can look forward to several seasonal highlights.
