All Norwegian top stars attending Summer Grand Prix
As opposed to last summer when large parts of the Norwegian team did not take part the Summer Grand Prix at all, head coach Kristian Hammer's team will be back in full force for the competitions in Germany and Austria.
Joergen Graabak, Jan Schmid, Haavard Klemetsen, Magnus Krog, Mikko Kokslien and Magnus Moan will be attending the five competitions in seven days, hoping to top Magnus Moan's result of one victory and one fifth place of last year's Grand Prix series.
"My goal is to enjoy myself and perform my best to date. I want to do some good ski jumping and maybe get a top 5 position or two", Mikko Kokslien elaborates.
"We had the Norges Cup competitions and the training program to prepare for the season so far. Now it will be very good to have a international comparison so the athletes can get a feeling of their level of performance at the moment", sports director Sverre Rotevatn says.
