THE MOST EXTREME AND INTENSE SKI JUMPING TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD!
* 16 jumps in total for both men and women in Holmenkollen, Granåsen and Vikersund.
* Competitions will be held in normal hill, large hill and ski flying.
* Only 10 men in a final, third round on the Sunday in Vikersund.
– Last year we saw the anticipation connected to which of the women who got to jump in Vikersund, now we are adjusting to increase the excitement for the men’s RAW AIR as well. This will heighten the drama and interest around the athletes having to master three different sizes of hills in RAW AIR 2024. This has never happened before, says project leader of the tournament, Ståle Villumstad.
Monday there were held FIS-meetings after the Summer Grand Prix final in Klingenthal. The details, change of rules for competitions and equipment for the upcoming World Cup season was made official.
This winter the first ever FIS-event for women in ski flying was held in Vikersund, this winter there will be two competitions and they will hold the status of World Cup-events. The past season, only 15 women were allowed to participate in the ski flying event, this year it is increased to a maximum of 20. The international ski jumping committee, FIS, decided that the 15 best women in the overall World Cup, and the 15 best in the RAW AIR tournament will be allowed to ski fly, but there will be a limit of a total of 20 athletes.
RAW AIR starts in Holmenkollen, continues on to Granåsen and the finals are held in Vikersund. There will be RAW AIR-competitions in the new World Championship hills in Granåsen for both men and women.
– This continues to develop RAW AIR, initiated by race director in ski jumping FIS, Sandro Pertile, which shows that Norwegian ski jumping has created a tournament that has a lot of value and interest in increasing the value of our sport. This shows that we continue to live our vision “We want to be the World’s most important ski jumping nation”, says chief of sports for the Norwegian ski jumpers, Clas Brede Bråthen.
In addition to RAW AIR, Norway will host a World Cup-weekend for both men and women in the first weekend of December. All suggestions from the international ski jumping committee will be officiated by the end of October.
The women who will be permitted to start in the ski flying competitions in Vikersund, will be the top 15 from the World Cup-overall, and a possible addition of 5 athletes from the top 15 of RAW AIR after the competitions in Granåsen. The 50 best men in RAW AIR after the competitions in Granåsen will participate in a qualification in Vikersund on the Friday, where 40 will qualify for the competition on Saturday. For the finale on the Sunday, it will only be the 30 best men starting. The 20 best will be jumping in the 2nd round and the top 10 will proceed to a final 3rd round to fight for the RAW AIR overall title.
The final of the RAW AIR 2023 was dominated by the duel between Stefan Kraft and Halvor Egner Granerud. Both athletes once again delivered outstanding performances and in the end both could be celebrated as winners. Kraft won the day with spectacular flights, Granerud celebrated the overall victory at the RAW AIR (50.000,- Euro) and additionally the early win of the overall World Cup, which Granerud could celebrate already before the start of the competition, because his only remaining competitor, the Pole Dawid Kubacki, had cancelled his start due to private reasons.
Slovenia's Ema Klinec won the first ever women's ski flying event in Vikersund (NOR) on Sunday. The 24-year-old clearly prevailed over Silje Opseth of Norway and Yuki Ito of Japan in the world premiere with flights to 226.5 and 223 meters. With her success, Klinec also won the overall ranking of RAW AIR 2023.
Selina Freitag and Katharina Althaus managed to jump to third and second place in the RAW AIR overall ranking behind overall winner Ema Klinec, a great performance of the German team.

The women are ready to take on the ski flying hill. The 15 best in the standings after the races in Lillehammer will get the chance to compete in the historic ski flying competition on Sunday, March 19th. After years of campaigning, the women's world elite will jump down the mammoth hill in Vikersund during the finale of the RAW AIR tournament.
Since Granåsen is under renovation before the 2025 World Championships, there will be double races in Lillehammer. There have never been so many counting jumps in RAW AIR before. With a total of 18 counting jumps for the men and a total of 14 counting jumps for the women spread over ten days, the athletes must be extra focused to reach the top of the standings.
In addition to the traditional World Cup prize money, extra prize money has been set up for the RAW AIR standings. The prize money is equal for women and men, but the total amount on the women's side is lower due to one fewer race.
RAW AIR has sustainability at its core, and, among other things, there will be electric transport of equipment between the competition venues as a new feature in the 2023 tournament.
In addition to the prize money regulated by the FIS WC rules, there will be paid extra prize money to the FIS World Cup RAW AIR Tournament overall top 3 athletes. First Prize Second Prize Third Prize € 50 000 € 20 000 € 10 000 € 40 000 € 15 000 € 5000
