                                                               ANALYSIS MEETING IN PLANICA, RESTRUCTURING DECIDED

PLANICA (SLO), 19 March 2010—As planned, a season analysis meeting regarding the discipline of Nordic Combined was held among FIS President Gian Franco Kasper, FIS Secretary General Sarah Lewis and Walter Hofer, Head of Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined, at the FIS Ski Flying World Championships 2010 in Planica.

The analysis meeting decided that a restructuring of the discipline will take place until the FIS Congress in Antalya scheduled from 30th May to 5th June. This restructuring will in the first instance be focused on the level of the officials.

The restructuring will be the next step in the consolidation of Nordic Combined that began at the FIS Congress in Cape Town in 2008.

The re-organization of competition formats and competition rules, successfully initiated by Walter Hofer two years ago, can now be considered as complete and final.
