What's in a ski jumper's mind during jumping?

The video shows a ski jumper from the beginning (the waiting phase before the green signal), the leap and landing in the target area. It is loud, the spectators wait for his action. He is very concentrated. We cannot see what he thinks and feels. This video shows what he may feel and think, and this shows with simple and comic-like expressions. The stress at the start, the uncertainty and the fascination of the flight phase, the desire for a good landing, the release after the successful leap, the expected admiration of the spectators.
