Picture This: Flying High in the Alps


Among ski jumpers, the annual Four Hills Tournament is the highlight of the year. Athletes from across Europe have already completed the first two stages, with the third stage set to take place on Friday in Innsbruck, Austria. Here, Anders Jacobsen of Norway soars off the jump during a training session on Thursday. Jacobsen won each of the first two events in the quartet, in Oberstdorf and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The fourth "hill" is in Bischofshofen, Austria.
