Four Park City athletes make US. Ski Jumping Team
U.S. Ski & Snowboard this week announced the 18 athletes named to the U.S. Ski Jumping Team for the 2023-24 season, including four from Park City.
“I’m really excited about the progress that our athletes have made this summer, building off the great season we had last year,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined Sport Director Anders Johnson. “Nearly our entire team recorded new personal bests in the Summer Grand Prix circuit, and you can see that the confidence is building in each athlete daily. Our staff has done an amazing job preparing our team and I feel very confident this will be our best season yet.”
Two-time Olympian and four-time World Championships team member Casey Larson and 2022 Olympian Decker Dean return to lead the men’s team for the 2023-24 season. Women’s ski jumping will be led by two-time World Championships team member Annika Belshaw, who is the only athlete to be named to the U.S. Ski Jumping A Team.
The Park City members are Josie Johnson, Paige Jones, Sam Macuga and Rachael Haerter.
The 2023-24 FIS Ski Jumping World Cup season is scheduled to kick off with men’s ski jumping competitions in Ruka, Finland from Nov. 24-26.
