This year’s Planica 7 trophy reflects the courage of our winter heroes

The winner of Zavarovalnica Triglav’s “Design a Trophy” competition, Tjaša Vreš, presents her creation to the winner of Planica 7

The courage of winter heroes, unspoilt nature and the unforgettable atmosphere of Slovenia’s biggest sporting spectacle – these all provided the inspiration behind the Planica 7 trophy design drawn by 12-year-old Tjaša Vreš from Limbuš. The trophy that she designed (and even painted herself) was presented to Austrian Daniel Huber, whose 1,374.6 points were enough to crown him the winner of the Planica 7 competition on the final weekend of the World Cup ski jumping calendar.

Although I’m quite a shy person and was quite a bit scared, I’m proud now that I was given the opportunity of handing the cup over to the Planica 7 winner,” said Tjaša. Daniel Huber, who collected the most points across the seven flights, received a trophy portraying mountains, a ski flying hill and jumper, and a large victorious eagle. With these elements the young designer wished to show the courage required of every ski jumper, and the unforgettable atmosphere and unique backdrop of Planica.

Design competition winner enjoys an unforgettable day in Planica
The young artist began the day in Planica in the company of Cene Prevc, former ski jumper and member of the Zavarovalnica Triglav “Design a Trophy” jury. She was invited to the top of the hill before the trial jumps, to see the wonderful valley spread out below. “Although it was a bit foggy, I did get an idea of just how brave the jumpers have to be to even dare to jump from that height,” said Tjaša. After some vocal support in the company of her parents and brother, as well as of the teacher who encouraged her to enter her drawing into the competition, the time came for her to show some courage herself, overcome her shyness and hand her design over to the winner of Planica 7.
