Christian Nagiller set absolute hill record with fall at 220 meters. Daniela Iraschko holds the ladies world record with 200 meters and she is the only woman in history who managed to fly over magic two hundred meters. World record by men was improved three times in this hill. This venue also hosted four FIS Ski Flying World Championships in 1975, 1986, 1996, 2006 and will be hosting it in 2016. In 2014-2015 hill was completely renovated with K 200 and HS 225. It will be possibly to fly up to 235 meters. Jumping a new world record from this hill will be extremely difficult to do, even though Kulm has HS225 the same as Vikersund its landing zone starts earlier.
