The modern ski jump complex in Turkey just collapsed in a landslide. It was opened three years ago, and it is the latest mishap in the construction projects that were developed under Turkey’s Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. The two ski jumps in Kiremitlik Hill in the eastern province of Erzurum were destroyed earlier this week when heavy rains and a natural disaster befell the sports facility. The facility had been evacuated and the national ski jump team was barred from training there since the landslide had started taking effect about a week ago. Erol Mehmet Yarar, head of the Turkish Skiing Federation, said an expert report would reveal how the complex collapsed. It consists of two jumping towers and smaller slopes for training. It is in the Palandoken Mountain and it famous for being the place skilled skiers go to ski. Read more and keep up with the story at Middle East Online.
