Utah to Host 2008 US Ski Jumping Championships

First Tracks reports that the U.S. Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined Championships will be held in Park City on March 15-16, marking the event's return to Utah's Olympic sites for the first time since 2001

The online magazine reports: "The two-day schedule on the 2002 Olympic venue at Utah Olympic Park includes jumping titles for men and women. The 134-meter large hill jumping championships are set for March 15 and the 100-meter normal hill title events the next day. The nordic combined championship, a sprint event, will include one jump on the large hill and a 7.5K race March 15 at Soldier Hollow, the Olympic cross country venue."

"These championships are a key part of the Olympic legacy, just as the cross country championships of 2005 and 2006 at Soldier Hollow were. These are outstanding venues," (Nordic Director Luke) Bodensteiner said, "and it's good we have another opportunity to make use of them. They're outstanding facilities for us in training and we use them constantly, so it's thrilling to bring a major competition to them."
