The organizers in all four locations are also in close contact with the relevant authorities on Covid-19, which is also confirmed by tour president Johann Pichler: "The top priority is the health of all those involved, regardless of whether they are athletes, carers or spectators. We will ensure this in all four locations in the best possible way. Nevertheless, we recommend all ski jumping fans to secure their tickets at an early stage if there are still restrictions until the event that do not allow full use of the stadiums. "
The ski jumping world deeply misses the sports photographer Hans Rauchensteiner.
