The Vogtland Arena in Klingenthal is the stage for the Summer Grand Prix finals. With one individual and one mixed team competition on the HS140, it is promising to become an exciting weekend. Espescially now that Hopplandslaget has decided to send in the big guns.

Return of the superstars

It's already been an exciting Summer Grand Prix season, where two of the Prosjekt 2026 talents, Heidi Dyhre Traaserud and Nora Midtsundstad, accompanied by Hopplandslaget rookies Kjersti Græsli and Ingvild Synnøve Midtskogen achieved good rankings and career highs.

For the final competition, the team will consist of well-known names. Anna Odine Strøm, Silje Opseth, Thea Minyan Bjørseth, Eirin Kvandal and Maren Lundby will take the trip Germany. For Maren it will be the first time she will put on a bib since flying in Vikersund in March. The Ski Jumping Queen struggled with a knee injury for some time this summer, but has been jumping consistently and is well prepared.
