Holmenkollen's ski jump controversy

The Holmenkollen ski jump is one of the smallest hills in the World Cup tournament, and the International Ski Federation made it clear in September 2005 that the current hill does not meet the standards to award Oslo the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. The International Ski Federation/Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS) is the main international organisation of ski sports. ...


Options were to spend large amounts of money updating the ski jump, demolishing the jump and building two jumping hills in its place (large and normal hill), or building two new hills and keeping Holmenkollen as a historical monument. But in December 2005, Norway's Directorate of Cultural Heritage, Nils Marstein, approved the demolition of the ski jump.


It had been revealed that in order to get Holmenkollen up to athletic requirements then NOK 310 million (USD 46 million, GBP 26.5 million) would need to be spent on it. Of this amount, at least NOK 155 million would be expected to come from the City of Oslo, however in February 2006, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and Finance Minister Kristin Halvorsen offered only NOK 70 million (USD 10 million, GBP 3.8 million). Then in March 2006 a presentation was made by Oslo officials to show what a newly rebuilt Holmenkollen Ski Jump might look like, but the price had increased to NOK 450 (USD 74 million, GBP 39 million). The City of Oslo are still only offering NOK 70 million, but Oslo Mayor Per Ditlev Simonsen and Ski Association official Rolf Nyhus are still moving forward with Holmenkollen redevelopment plans. Jens Stoltenberg (born March 16, 1959) is a Norwegian economist, leader (since 2002) of the Norwegian Labour Party and the current Prime Minister of Norway. ... Kristin Halvorsen, 17 October 2005 Kristin Halvorsen (born September 2, 1960 in Horten, Vestfold) is a Norwegian socialist politician and is the Minister of Finance since 17 October 2005. ...


It was reported on the event's official website on March 23, 2006 that the ski jump (per a vote by Oslo's city parliament) would be demolished and replaced in the spring of 2007. The new ski jump will have a less steep inrun, artificial refrigeration of the inrun, a reconstructed lower part of the jump to the end of the outrun, lights for evening jumps, a new elevator for the jumpers, wind protection measures for the jumpers, new spectator grand stands, an improved loudspeaker system, and a new scoreboard. A new normal hill jump at Midstuen will also be constructed just below the ski jump as well. March 23 is the 82nd day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (83rd in Leap years). ... 2007 (MMVII) will be a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The FIS awarded the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships to Oslo in May 2006 for 2011. The Nordic skiing World Championships (officially the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships) have been held in various numbers and types of events since 1925 for men and including women since 1954. ... 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
