DDR (East German) stamp - Memorial for the Ski Jumper. The ski jumper shown in the top center of the stamp is demonstrating the Daescher technique.

The Däscher technique is a ski jumping technique that was created by Andreas Däscher of Switzerland. This technique was created in the 1950s as a modification of the Kongsberger technique where the arms are placed backward toward the hips for a closer lean. This would become the standard for ski jumping until the development of the modern V-technique, popularised by Jan Boklöv of Sweden in 1985.
