About Jumping Hill

The construction of the new ski jumping hill in Wisla Malinka turned out to be almost the national issue owing to “małyszomania” which spreaded across Poland as a result of international success achieved by a ski jumper form Wisła – Adam Małysz. Polish people loved the modest jumper representing Wisła Ustronianka Sports Club. The success , including four  Trophies of Crystal Balls in Ski Jumping World Cup, silver and bronze Winter  Olympic medal, the victory in Four Hills Tournament not to mention many others, did not change the priorities of “the Eagle from Wisła.” Małysz always emphasized he was dreaming of a venue in his hometown Wisła which would be inseparable part of the town tradition and would make the ski jumping world of the Beskid Mountains more attractive. It seemed natural that the ski jumping hill was to be named after him. However, it took a long time to convince the outstanding  Wisła’s citizen to agree. He finally did, concluding that nothing would associate with him more  than the hill itself.
