Vikersundbakken ski flying hill

Vikersundbakken is the only ski flying hill in the nordic countries. With a hill record at 219 meters, Vikersundbakken is the world's third largest ski jumping hill. The hill was built in 1936 and was rebuilt to a ski flying hill in 1966, when BjÝrn Wirkola set a new world record, jumping 146 meters. The hill has been rebuilt and renovated many times, the last time before the 2000 Ski-flying World Championships. The hill is owned by "Stiftelsen Vikersund Hoppsenter", a foundation created by Vikersund IF. In 2006, Vikersundbakken became the first ski flying hill with permanent floodlights, and in 2007 became the first hill to arrange a ski flying night event. 14 - 15 march 2009 World Cup Skiflying and Nordic Combined will be organised in Vikersund. In 2011 World Cup Skiflying will take place in Vikersund. The skiflying event this year are trial World Championships. In 2012 Vikersund will host the Skiflying World Championships.
