Ministry of Education and Sport has partaken a lot of effort in restoring the former glory in Planica. The plan is to upgrade Planica into a modern center for the Nordic disciplines.
We think this is the perfect opportunity for the candidacy of the FIS Nordic World Championships. Slovenia has a long standing tradition in organizing events in Nordic skiing and loyal fans to support them.
Ambassadors for the World Championships in Nordic disciplines in Planica 2017:
Bronze medal winner from Winter Olympics in Vancouver 2010, silver and bronze medal winner from World Championships. She has achieved 24 victories in World cup, two time winner of the small Chrystal Globe in sprint. With her warm and easy going personality she is the perfect choice to bring the name of Planica into the world.
