On the ski flying hill in Planica, Matti Hautamäki set three consecutive world records – 227.5,[6] 228.5[7] and 231 metres[8] – in a span of four days, becoming the first ski jumper to officially break the 230 m barrier.[9] Prior to Hautamäki's 231 m jump, Veli-Matti Lindström became the first to unofficially surpass 230 m with a jump of 232.5 m during the 21 March trial round,[10] but his jump was rendered an invalid world record due to him touching the snow with his hand.[11]
