Jussi's First Real Ski Jumping Experience
On 5th of May 2005 Jussi Koskela, the developer of Deluxe Ski
Jump games, made a visit to
Herttoniemi ski jumping center
in Helsinki to perform his first ever jump on a real ski jumping
Jussi's aim was to make a successfull jump on the Herttoniemi
K15 Hill in the footsteps of the two time olympic champion
Toni Nieminen who holds the hill record of 17.0 meters for that
After slipping into a nice looking ski jumping suit Jussi
picked up a pair of skis for waxing and received the jumping
instructions. Then it was time to do some training.
Jussi slided down the landing hill a couple of times to train
his balance and to familiarize himself with the speed. It went
all well, so Jussi was ready for the real thing...
