    Fans of the king

    Here are few fans of the king of ski jumping. Janne Ahonen was breaking few records in ski jumping this season, he won the four hills tournament, the world championships and the ski world cup season. No doubt, the current king.

    Make no mistake here, she did not speak Finnish or English, must be a French then, it is just that it has been long time since a Frenchman was successful around the ski jumps competitions, but we will keep hoping.

    I am not sure about this one, I think she was from Germany but one thing I am sure about, she supporting the Norwegians jumpers and, of course, the No.1 idol of the ski jump world cup, Bjørn Einar Romøren.

    I did try to interview most of the fans, but those two, were very shy, I am not sure even where they were from, I did try to speak Finnish, English or German without much success, maybe I should have try Hebrew.

    And here is another lovely Finn, this time supporting the Austrian ski jumpers, I guess this one was especially for Thomas Morgenstern.

    Finn supporting the German jumpers.

    One of the interesting things in ski jump is that not always the fans supporting the jumpers from their own country. Here is a lovely Finn supporting the German jumpers.

    Lovely local girls supporting the Finnish jumpers.

    Ski jump is one of the most popular winter sports in Finland, it is tradition to go to competition and even more for international one as this was the world cup.
