Kongsberger technique

Kongsberger technique

The Kongsberger technique (Norwegian:"Kongsbergknekk") in ski jumping was created in Kongsberg, Norway by Jacob Tullin Thams and Sigmund Ruud. The technique was developed after World War I, and was characterized by the upper body being bent at the hip, and arms extended at the front with the skis parallel to each other. This technique would extend jumping lengths from 45 meters to over 100 meters and would be the popular ski jumping technique until it was superseded by the Daescher technique and Windisch technique in the 1950s.
