RAW AIR: Extra prize money also for the ladies

Two years after the first edition of the men's RAW AIR Tour, there will also be a ladies' RAW AIR Tour in Norway next winter.

The competitions of the first ladies' RAW AIR will be held in March 2019 together with the men's events in Oslo, Lillehammer, and Trondheim. There the athletes can not only look forward to various large hill competitions but also to some extra prize money.

A total prize money for the ladies will be 55 000,- Euro. The winner will get 35 000,- Euro, the second place will be rewarded 15 000,- Euro, the third-placed athlete of the overall ranking will get 5 000,- Euro.

"This is a big day for us female ski jumpers. It means that I could double my income from the Olympic season. But of course I'm not jumping because of the money, if that was the case I would have had to choose another sport", said Olympic champion Maren Lundby.
