The take-off is one of the most important phases of ski jumping.
The jumper tries to get into an aerodynamic flight-position as soon as possible with the help of the inrun-speed and physical jump. Perfect timing, automated movement and enormous courage mark this phase.
The take-off takes place on the 6 – 8 meter long table. With a speed of 90 km/h and a table-length of 6 meters the athlete has to implement the take-off within 150 milliseconds.
A strong and precise take-off at the take-off table is a prerequisite for long jumps. This phase of a jump is especially important on smaller facilities because the athlete can't use a good feeling during the flight to make up for mistakes as much as on larger hills.
