THE MOST EXTREME AND INTENSE SKI JUMPING TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD!
Ema Klinec wins Raw Air 2023 and the new world record is 226 meter.
Halvor Egner Granerud wins Raw Air 2023
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

It all starts in the heart of skiing!
Welcome to the hill on top of Oslo! Holmenkollen hosts the premiere of RAW AIR.
In Holmenkollen you get to experience three competitions - starting with qualifications on Friday with free entry. The next day, the men will perform in a team competition before finishing off with individual competition on the traditional "Holmenkollen Sunday". The Ladies have their qualification on Saturday, before finishing off with an individual competition on Sunday.
All tickets to the Holmenkollen event, which includes competitions in XC skiing and Nordic Combined, will automatically give you access to RAW AIR.
Holmenkollen is a traditional and unique arena, dating back to 1892 when the first ski event was held here. Now, it's a vibrant venue on top of Norway's capital city Oslo.
Legendary Norwegian commentator - Arne Scheie:
Within the ski jumping community, Holmenkollen is a hill everyone is familiar with. Maybe not so strange, considering the first ever competition was held there as early as 1892".
Norwegian ski jumper – Anders Fannemel
"Growing up I used to watch the Holmenkollen competitions on TV, and of course I want to perform my best there.
