After the turbulent World Cup opening in Klingenthal last weekend, the ski jumpers also had to deal with difficult conditions on the first day in Kuusamo.

Strong wind at the Rukatunturi-hill forced the jury to postpone the start of the official training and the qualification before it was finally decided at about 6:00 pm CET that ski jumping would not be possible on Thursday.

The official training and the qualification shall now be held before the first competition on Friday.

Training shall start at 1:00 pm CET (2:00 pm local time), followed by the qualification. The competition will then start at 4:00 pm CET as originally planned.
