History is being written in Ljubno ob Savinji Author: Jože Mermal, President and CEO of BTC d.d.
Between 11 and 12 February we will be able to witness a historic event in Ljubno ob Savinji. In the first ever season of the Women’s Ski Jumping World Cup, Slovenia will host the best competitors in this beautiful sport. This is even more important in light of the fact that the first World Cup season is also an introduction to the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, where women’s ski jumping will be an Olympic discipline for the first time in history.
Ski jumping in Slovenia began to develop a long time ago, while our country was still a part of the former Yugoslavia. Throughout this history, our competitors garnered numerous medals at the largest events. We cheered for and celebrated with our jumpers as they competed in Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cup events. Now, a generation of excellent female jumpers is growing up in Slovenia and they are already achieving excellent results and are competing for top spots in the global competition. I am happy that Slovenia is giving them a chance to show what they can do. I am convinced that we will celebrate their achievements both in Ljubno ob Savinji as well as at the Olympic Games and other major events.
You are invited to join us at this world-class sporting event! Join us in Ljubno ob Savinji!
