A new milestone has now been passed on the road towards the 2015 Nordic World Ski Championships in Falun. On Thursday May 24th, it was exactly 1,000 days to the opening ceremony of the great festival of skiing in Falun on February 18th,2015. The Championships are expected to attract more than 200,000 spectators.
The day was celebrated with plenty of positive energy and enthusiasm about the preparations for the fast-approaching World Championships – and not least about the new Nordic World Ski Championships logo that was released during the 1,000-dayscelebrations in Falun.
The new logo is a colorful representation of the ski-jumping hills in Falun and its release on Thursday provided a powerful symbol for the increasing tempo of the work preparing for the World Championships.
“Our new logo is both exciting and attractive, well-suited to Falun’s profile as a skiing and culture destination. We’re also very pleased that the logo has been so well-received by the International Ski Federation FIS, by the EBU and by Swedish Television, SVT. “Naturally the approval of stakeholders like these carries some weight” says Sven von Holst, CEO of the World Championships organizers in Falun.
Work on preparing for the 2015 Nordic Word Ski Championships is accelerating for each day that passes, which is of course very encouraging for Sven von Holst:
“Today’s very enjoyable celebrations were also a reminder for us all that time really does fly. So I’m very pleased to say that we are well up to schedule in our World Championships preparations. Most sub-projects are progressing to plan and our organization now has a stable structure and a fast increasing tempo in its work”, Sven von Holst says and continues:
“The only hitch so far is that renovation work on the jumping hills hasn’t kept up to the schedule we’d been hoping for. But we’re very aware of that issue and are now working hard so as not to lose any more time on the project. We all know that time is at a premium.”
