35,000 capacity Mühlenkopfschanze is a German ski jumping hill, located in Willingen. It is the world's biggest large hill, and holds World Cup events every year. The current hill record was made by Janne Ahonen in 2005. Ahonen jumped 155,5 meters, but the measuring system could only measure as far as 152 meters, downgrading Ahonen's jump from 155,5 to 152 meters.[citation needed]
