Duration of video 02:01 min.
In reality, a ski jump takes only a few seconds. At the Audi wind tunnel, the athletes have up to two minutes to work on the position of the head, arms, shoulders and legs. Now, Germany’s best ski jumpers around Severin Freund have again used this unusual training opportunity in Ingolstadt to prepare for the new season. For the jumpers, the modern facility simulates wind speeds of up to 100 km/h and can thus provide the crucial advantages in the battle about centimeters and style scores.
