    I hoped that Peterka would do better.

    I read in a newspaper today that the Norwegian coach, Kojonkoski, is forcing the jumpers to weigh themselves in order to control that they do not loose any more weight. I think that's a really good thing!

    It was nice to see Janne won this four hills tournament for second time. And it was nice to see such norwegian success for a change. Kojonkoski has done great job.



    Here's a nice news article about [link=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/funny_old_game/1194090.stm]Eddie The Eagle[/link] from last year.

    Now that Ahonen won he's got some financial problems. He got about 30000 ? and that car which is worth about 70000 ? but thanks to Finland's tax system he has to pay taxes about 40000 ?. Ahonen said that if he accepts the car he'll have to sell his house. It's interesting to see what he'll make.

    oh come on! I could understand he´d have to pay tax for the cash he got, but for the car? That´s just not fair. He wins once and he´s to pay so much tax! I think he should move to Monaco ;)

    EDIT: Can´t he just sell the car (he´d have about 100,000) then pay the taxes (-40,000) and he´d still have 60,000 Euro. He could still buy a pretty decent car. I mean 60,000 Euro is still a lot of money... at least WAY MORE than I have ;)

    Yeah, I think that would be a good idea, I would also accept if he wanted to give the car to me.

    I think it's sad when all stars leaver their countries and go to Monaco just because of the taxes.

    well, if you pcik me up for a ride, you can have the car if you want ;)
    Btw. I´ll probably come to Sweden in June. It´s a University fieldtrip to discover Sweden´s rocks :D It will be 8 days just running around in the countryside looking at granite and other stones ;)

    sure it is sad, but i kinda understand why they are doing it. austria somehow managed to get a lot of them back, though. lowered the taxes or something. dunno exactly.

    Do you know where in Sweden you are going?

    Ohh, and I heard that he wont exactly need to sell his house, that was an exaggeration.

    One problem seems to be that they can't value the car, it's worth more in Finland than in Germany. (and you though the euro would solve that kind of problems)

    Well today wasn't very good day for Finnish skijumpers, only Veli-Matti "Vellu" Lindström managed to get into top ten. Janne Ahonen was 20th which is not very good result.

    Hannawald was again best but I'm quite worried about the Austrian jumpers: again 5 jumpers in top ten. It will be difficult to beat them in Val di Fiemme. It's not very long time to that.

    yeah Morgenstern for example. how old is he? 16? and he´s already one of the best. well, could be just for this season, like Amman just for the olympic games...but still... I hope Janne does better tomorrow!

    It's really annoying not being able to watch ski jumping. :(

    On a funnier note, Sweden seems to get a decent cross country team this year. Can't wait to Val di Fiemme. (I will probably go there :D )

    Well Ahonen jumped better today than yesterday, otherwise practically nothing else changed.


    I don't watch much cross country skiing anymore, but I like to practice it myself. And this winter I have had good chances to do that even here in South Finland.

    I did downhill quite actively until I turned 15. Then my equipment got too small for me and didn't ask my parents to buy me a new set. So after that I haven't done that. I might someday try it again. I was pretty good in it after all. :cool:

    As I read that Nagiller has won in Hakuba, my first thought was "Who?" :p

    The Austrians are scary this winter...

    I had exactly same thought.

    Austrians are scary.

    But it was nice thing that Matti Hautamäki jumped well for a change.
