After the turbulent World Cup opening in Klingenthal there's not much time to relax for everyone. The World Cup continues already on Thursday with the training and qualification in Kuusamo.

Near the Arctic Circle in northern Finland everything is already prepared and right now it also looks good concerning the weather conditions. "We have enough snow and the weather forecast is very good for the upcoming weekend. Temperatures remain below zero and hopefully we will get some sun on the end of the week", says Seppo Linjakump, General Secretary of the Ruka Nordic Opening.

Not only the ski jumpers, but also cross country skiers and nordic combined athletes will fight for World Cup wins in Kuusamo and the preparations for the events are going according to plan. "The setting-up of the event venue is on schedule. During Tuesday and Wednesday the stadium will be ready for action. Some teams are already here for training", told Linjakumpu.
