Huge crowds expected at the Kulm
Due to the recent successes of Thomas Diethart and Thomas Morgenstern with the first and second place in the 4-Hills-Tournament, the organizers of the ski flying World Cup at the Kulm (AUT) expect huge crowds at the competitions this weekend.
35 000 tickets were already sold so far, about 100 000 spectators are expected to attend the events from January 10th to 12th.
Many fans are also anticipated from the home of shooting star Thomas Diethart: "We think that, because the great performance of Thomas Diethart, at least an additional 5 000 spectators will come from Lower Austria", said organizer Hubert Neuper, a former 4-Hills-Tournament winner himself.
Tickets will still be available on the day of the events.
