Mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, and international ski jumper Bjørn Einar Romøren launched the new ski jump internet game with a head to head contest.

The popular ski jump game, which has already seen an amazing 260 million jumps, has now been launched in a new and upgraded form. The jump is now identical with the new icon of the Holmenkollen and Oslo skyline.

The launch took place in the World Ski Championship Pavilion in central Oslo. The mayor opened proceedings by saying that Holmenkollen is a proud national symbol, where all Norwegians should feel at home. He also said that the ski jump game is a fantastic marketing medium for directing attention to Norway’s capital.

Naturally, the launch provided the opportunity for a little duel between mayor Fabian Stang, international ski jumper Bjørn Einar Romøren, and not least the silver medal winner from the Lillehammer Olympics, Lasse Ottesen.
The game has been developed by Innovation Norway, in partnership with VisitOslo, the Federation for the Promotion of Skiing, WSC 2011 and Color Line.
