Our ski friend Andrzej Lodzinski from Poland sent us a kind e-mail as follows:

"Better late than neither!

I would like to send you my congratulations on your very successful event Pokal Loka 2013. I greatly appreciated splendid organization and profesionalism of your people. 

We love the specific friendly atmosphere of the event. Participants, coaches and parents received a lot of help and attendance from all people around it, both on the slopes and at the accomodation places.

The parallel slalom in the centre of the city was a great attraction and fun.

I wish to express my thanks for everything and hope to bring the Polish team for Pokal Loka 2014.

Best regards   Andrzej"

Hubert Rumpler's greetings

Our dear ski friend Hubert Rumpler from Austria sent us a cordial e-mail which we want to present you in original language:

Liebe Freunde in Skofia Loka!

Herzlichen Dank für die Zusendung des Video vom 38. Pokal Loka. Da bekommt schon ein wenig Sehnsucht, aber auch Wehmut, aber nicht zuletzt Freude, wenn man das Video sieht, mit welcher Freude der Kinder beim Skilaufen sind.

Ich habe einmal bei einer Frage beantwortet:

"Kinder hören gerne Märchen, erzählt Ihnen doch das Märchen vom Skilauf, Skilaufen ist eines der schönsten Märchen, welches man Kindern erzählen kann."

Zu diesen Märchenerzählern zahlen die Veranstalter von Internationalen Kinderrennen, in Italien, Kroatien, Kanada, eben überall wo solche "Kinderspiele" veranstaltet werden, wie eben in Slowenien, in Skofia Loka.

Nun ist auch für Slowenien die Saat aufgegangen, herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Tina Maze, da kann man wirklich nur von ganzen Herzen gratulieren, aber Tina ist auch über solche Veranstaltungen gross geworden. Nicht nur Tina Maze, viele Talente von verschiedenen Nationen wurden bei Internationalen Kinderrennen angespornt, Weltmeister, Olympiasieger zu werden. Ich war immerhin 32 Jahre (von 1975 - 2007) bei Internationalen Kinderrennen unterwegs und habe vielen der späteren Sieger bei Olympia und Weltcup auf die Beine, auf die Ski geschaut.

Von der FIS leider unbedankt, sind diese Wettkämpfe die wahren  Wegbereiter für spätere Sieger.

Dazu "Allen" Gratulation.

Pokal Loka on TV

24.02.2013, 08:02

All main TV stations in Slovenia reported about 38. Pokal Loka. They focused mainly on the parallel event and the opening ceremony on Friday evening. The comment of Slavko Bobovnik on RTV SLO 1 was interesting: "If the competition in the middle of the town can be organized in Munich and Moscow why not also in Skofja Loka. And the question at the end? What else remains the Greats? Nothing, if we do our best."

The survey over 38. Pokal Loka

19.02.2013, 03:58

Pokal Loka is no more only the competition but a feast lasting three days. Unfortunately pretty hard for all participants as for the competitors as for the organizers. Friday begins with the opening ceremony and concludes with the parallel event. This year night event under Loka castle was very picturesque. Norwegian team won before Slovenia, Sweden and Spain. 

The slopes on Stari vrh are not easy but the course was good prepared. Only on Saturday giant slalom the fog disturbed the children. As FIS increased the age limits a lot of athletes came repeatedly. 242 competitors from 33 countries started so the races lasted from 9.30 till 3 p.m.

The competition was wide. Two girls in U14 and U16 won twice: Italian Lara Della Mea (last year Topolino winner) and Slovenian Andreja Slokar. Also Norway was successful twice with Brudevoll Björn in U16 in GS and Vollo Rosberg Gustav U14 in slalom. The other gold medalists were French Fita Mateo among U14 in giant and Bulgarian Popov Albert U 16 in slalom. It was the first year in history of Pokal Loka that Austrians are leaving Skofja Loka without victory. The team winner was surprisingly Slovenia rather tight before Norway and Austria.

The organizers hope the participants were satisfied and expect all of them next year.

Detailed results are found under the file "Results".
