The world's top ski jumpers will flock to Innsbruck for the Jack Wolfskin Four Hills Tournament Jan. 3.
The event will take place at the Bergisel Stadium - a futuristic tower with an elegant curved run designed by London architect, Zaha Hadid in 2002. Skiers will take off at a speed of up to 92 kilometres per hour from the 134-metre-high jump-off platform.
Hundreds of spectators will gather in the resort to watch the tournament. There will also be a video screen displaying the latest information and interviews from the tournament; millions are expected to tune in at home.
The present title for the farthest jump is held by Adam Malysz's with 136 metres. Watch the event at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 3 to see if the record will be toppled. Spectators can also watch the training and qualifying jumps the day before the competition, at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 3.
