FasterSkierJune 13, 2008

Every season, Forum Nordicum, an association of Nordic sports journalists, makes an assessment at each Nordic and Biathlon World Cup venue and awards the honor of the most ‘media-friendly' World Cup host per discipline. This year's winners in the FIS Nordic disciplines are the two German World Cup venues Willingen – for Ski Jumping – and Klingenthal — for Nordic Combined – along with the Finnish World Cup host city of Lahti for Cross-Country.

The top three in the Nordic categories for the 2007/2008 season were:
Cross-Country: 1st Lahti (FIN), 2nd Canmore (CAN), 3rd Falun (SWE)
Ski Jumping: 1st Willingen (GER), 2nd Val di Fiemme (ITA), 3rd Engelberg (SUI) & Lahti (FIN)
Nordic Combined: 1st Klingenthal (GER), 2nd Val di Fiemme (ITA), 3rd Lahti (FIN)

“First of all, I would like to congratulate the winners on behalf of Forum Nordicum for their excellent work for the media. We can see that this evaluation helps to develop our working conditions,” noted Uwe Jentzsch, Chairman of Forum Nordicum, and added: “The award for the most media-friendly venue should be an incentive and help the hosts continue to improve the working conditions for on-site media in the long-term.”
