Ski Jumping World Championships Team named

Defending World Champion Sarah Hendrickson (Park City) headlines a team of two men and five women named to represent the U.S. in the Feb. 18-March 1 FIS Nordic Ski World Championships in Falun, Sweden.

Hendrickson will be joined by newcomers Nita Englund (Florence, Wisconsin) and Tara Garaghty-Moats (West Fairlee, Vermont) and veterans Jessica Jerome and Abby Hughes (both Park City). Junior Will Rhoads (Park City) will join Olympian Nick Alexander (Lebanon, New Hampshire) for the men.

"Going into this season I was very nervous about defending my title," Hendrickson said. "Now, I feel like there is very little pressure on me. Since I have had some mediocre results this season, I don’t think I’m seen as a threat. Of course, I am putting in more work and effort than ever to get back on top but I am seeing this year as building year."

The Championships open in Falun Feb. 18. The entire Championships schedule will be streamed live by the USSA at and will be available on the Live Arena Falun2015 mobile app in America.
