Perspective: Matti Nykänen state funeral would be a difficult place for Finland
The sports minister to find out whether I deserve Matti Nykänen flag burial. Would hill the hero didn't want to spend even its own feast in the kingdom in the public eye, asking the reporter Node Salminen.

ski jumping magnitude of Matti Nykänen died nuutinen wake has risen a debate whether Finland organises four of the olympic winners to the state funeral.

the European-, culture - and sports minister Sampo Terho (sin) announced on Tuesday that having the issue of the debate of the state council and the relevant ministry. Acorn position, the homage should think carefully, also on the basis of what level of citizen bashing typically is granted.

Some of the heart rings, that of a ragged life lived olympic hero wrap would be the Finnish flag on the last trip. Nykänen funeral collect certainly also that of the audience, which is the state funeral of the worthy.

the state council decision-making in the difficult years from 1989 came into force, the old days tighter regulatory state funeral.

Finland is back in the appreciated sports its these after death. Nykänen success is not a pale comparison to the state of the funds of the bury to the Paavo Nurmi or Hannes Kolehma - when you take into account that the heroes lived in a different world of time. In 1989, the power to become the practice of the official state funeral, however, only applies to presidents: even the prime minister of the flag to bury the need for a separate decision.

the Case continued to image after.

Finland is the latest in the award criteria considered eight state funeral. They were awarded the president Mauno Koivisto as well as the ex-prime minister Kalevi Sorsa , Ahti Karjalainen , John Estonian and Harri Holkerille . War heroes of honor have received the infantry general Adolf Ehrnrooth as well as the ranger-general Väinö Valve .

Only a one-time honor funeral is considered a person who rose to fame in the state room from the outside. He was kaleva cloth Tampere reclining writer Väinö linna .

a State funeral are nykysäännöillä missed all the olympic winners, and cultural sides of people like Tove or Kalle Main house . Skiing triple olympic champion Eero pine beach was buried with the usual ceremonies in 2013.

Matti Nykänen state funeral would create a new interpretation of the practice act. They would raise the sport society from the perspective of the same level as the culture - and maybe more. As the only culture-people to bury the Castle handprint can be interpreted more as a social than artistic.

Finland has multiple living olympic winner, whose sports career would be enough for the state funeral, if nykänen also get the credit. Their name can easily find a ski and ran to the honor table. Anyone public visibility has not been in the same class as Nykäsellä - and as is well known, Nykänen publicity is largely due to his difficulties and press.

on These grounds, Matti Nykänen is not the state to bury a great man. His popularity is among the people and needs the support of a marble or fanfare. The state council would give its position, taking into account the wrong message, if you would raise the skier from the presidents side.

on the other Hand it heart.

Sad news throughout the day to see some of the societal thinking in the name of the output, which made Nykänen mainly on the tavern stage for rotating a farce figure or disapproved of the deceased other way, because the background was sentences for violent crimes. Come to feel that it was the critics ' own construction of identity, as identity, which is the wind suit the people, yokelism and karaoke above.

I lived Nykänen success of the year, but understand him to admire after reading then archive the magazine for a few hours. Man drawing pie athlete and innate winner image. Jump in the tower Nykänen did not remain under the pressure of, even though they were terrible. In that regard, he is perhaps the only one of its kind in Finland's modern history.

Thus, the heart said that Nykänen state burial would not be väärinkään tribute to winning, and fall time, for ordinary people. Maybe even as a tribute to the silent majority and keskisormena elitisteille, who dictate to us the proper limits of life.

in summation: the Elections to prepare the politicians do not decide on the last place in state funeral, but the deceased's next of kin. So far so good. Perhaps most fundamentally we have to ask what Matti Nykänen think about. Would a ski jumper once again ready to give everything of himself to the people and to traverse the body may its live television thousands of under the eyes - or would he then be alone in my own modest place.
