”How does it feel - flying in the air?” I asked one of the athletes at the ski jumping competition at the Olympic Games in Sochi, where I was the photo manager of the ski jumping venue and thus not allowed to photograph the sporting activities.

“Well, you know, all these bird moments…”  he said, and smiled. I had no idea what he meant, but ever since that moment I have been thinking about birds and flying people.

These images were taken at the Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined competition in Lahti (Lahti Ski Games 2014), Finland, in March 2014. A big thank you to FIS for making this possible.
