A giant springboard will appear on Sakhalin

An ice springboard will be erected not far from the Kristall ice palace in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which will make it possible to host international competitions on Sakhalin. The idea of ​​building this structure came up a year ago. Today Deputy Prime Minister of the Sakhalin Region Sergey Khotochkin received President of the Federation for Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined of Russia Dmitry Dubrovsky and Race Director of the competitions in the same disciplines of the International Ski Federation (FIS) Walter Hofer. The guests arrived on the island to inspect the future construction site.

Sergey Khotochkin said that the future springboard is now going through a design stage.

“We are aware that such facilities are very complex in terms of sports technology and expensive in terms of finance. Therefore, we would like to enlist the support of the Ski Jumping Federation. We expect this organization to support our initiatives and plans. Everything we do fits into the concept of the Winter Sports Center to prepare the Russian national team for the 2018 Olympic Games in the Republic of Korea, "said the Deputy Prime Minister of the Sakhalin Region.

The guests examined the place where they plan to install the giant springboard. According to Walter Hofer, he is completely satisfied with the results. In his opinion, the new sports facility should become the hallmark of the island capital. It is necessary that the springboard was visible from the city, and the panorama of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk opened from the height of the sports facility.

Walter Hofer expressed the opinion that the K-120 springboard will allow holding the World Cup stage on Sakhalin if it is ready for the 2017 year.
