Occupation Athlete
Languages spoken English
Club name Norge Ski Club [Chicago, IL, USA]
Coach Scott Smith [club], USA; Bine Norcic [national], SLO (nwherald.com, 31 Dec 2017; bild.de, 03 Jan 2018)
Debut World Cup Debut - 2009 in Oberstdorf, Germany
Start He first tried ski jumping at age five at the Norge Ski Club in Fox River Grove, IL, United States of America. (usanordic.org, 01 Apr 2017; teamusa.org, 31 Dec 2017)
Reason His parents were looking for a winter activity for him and his brothers, so his uncle, a recreational ski jumper, took the family to try it. "I don't remember saying this, but apparently I told my uncle, because we were supposed to go in and get lunch and take a break and come back, 'No I'm going to stay out here until I get it right'." (parkrecord.com, 03 Jan 2018)
Influence His family. (usanordic.org, 01 Apr 2017)
Philosophy "Find a way or make one." (Facebook profile, 03 Jan 2018)
Awards He was named Central Division Skier of the Year on six occasions between 2009 and 2016. The honour can be won by athletes from Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois in the United States of America. (usanordic.org, 01 Apr 2017)
Additional information General
PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF
He secured a spot on the US team ahead of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games by winning the ski jump event at the US Olympic Team Trials for Nordic Combined & Ski Jumping in Summit County, Utah. Having missed out on qualification ahead of the 2010 and 2014 Games, he was almost six years older than any of his other rivals looking to make it to Pyeongchang. "I've never jumped in front of a crowd that big in the United States of America before. Everyone was super pumped up. Anyone on our team could have won today. It's great to be the older guy. [The other athletes] keep me young. They keep me up to date on all the Twitter stuff and Instagram. I can show them around some of the places we travel to. I've been going there for all of the competitions the last 10 years and I have a little more experience." (teamusa.org, 31 Dec 2017)
