Starting January 30, the world’s best nordic junior and U23 athletes will descend on the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, offering a preview of the Olympic podiums in 2022 and beyond. All twenty-four events of the 2017 FIS Nordic Junior and U23 World Ski Championships will be available live, worldwide—exclusively from the National Nordic Foundation (NNF). Access links to all events can be found at www.nnf.ski/tv.
In producing live coverage of the World Junior/U23 Championships, the NNF is not only pleased to provide the global skiing community with access to high-level international competition, interviews, and skier education but also to raise funds for nordic athletes across the United States. Live access to each event will be available for $4.95 or all events for $49.95. By offering this pay-per-view model worldwide, the NNF aims to generate funding that will support future athletic programming.
“This is a unique and exciting opportunity,” said Hennie Kashiwa, Executive Director of the NNF. “Not only are we able provide a service to the community and support the event’s organizing committee, but this is a chance to find new revenue that can go right back to our athletes. Tell your friends about it; this is going to be great.”
Once the Championships have concluded, all competitions will be archived and available, along with edited interviews and educational segments, at www.nnf.ski/tv.
The NNF's mission is to support athletic excellence in developing nordic athletes in the United States.
“NNF has continued to impact our sport in momentous ways….You’ve mobilized the entire ski community towards a common challenge and we are just starting to see the results.”- Ida Sargent
