Ski-jumping is one sport where
form counts as much as it does in
golf. The first essential in the snow
sport is nerve to try it and the second
is form.
The ski-jumper starts with his
body straightened, his arms down at
his side. During the slide he bends
his body forward and bends his knees
gradually. At the take-off the body
and knees are straightened. In the
air the body is straight and the arms
are used for balance. In landing, the
body should be limper, the skiis close
together, one a little in advance of
the other.
