Prime minister of Republic of Slovenia mr. Borut Pahor has accepted the honorable presidency of Organizing committee Planica. The biggest slovenian sporting festival, which is considered to be one of the most recognisable slovenian marketing brands in the world, will once again, from 19th till 22nd of March, host the finals of the FIS ski-jumping World cup. This way Planica is obtaining a new drive in light of construction of nordic centre, which will enable further development of this noble skiing discipline. An important turning-point is waiting for Planica in 2010, when Ski-flying World championships are scheduled.
»Planica is synonymous to sport, home and abroad. The best ski-jumping aces of the world, which move the boundaries of possible are admireable. I am convinced that everybody, who participates in organisation of the biggest slovenian sporting festival, can in years to come prepare everything neccessary for unforgettable experiences of competitors, visitors and more than 160 million TV-viewers all around the world. In the past Planica has, with its rich history, taken care of generations which have overcome the magic 200-metre boundary. Together we must, for those who come, make possible to reach over 300. In the place where it all started – Planica,« said mr. Borut Pahor at this occasion.
