The title of U.S. Champion is on the line in the upcoming U.S. Ski Jumping Championships at the Utah Olympic Park (UOP) in Park City Sunday, Aug. 4. The event on the HS134 meter large hill, taking place in the summer for the sixth-straight year, will be part of the Utah Olympic Park’s annual Springer Tournee.

Among the favorites will be World Champion Sarah Hendrickson of Park City, who sat out last year’s event while recovering from knee surgery, and large hill women’s titlist from 2012 Jessica Jerome, also from Park City. Defending champs Anders Johnson (Park City) and Peter Frenette (Saranac Lake, N.Y.), who tied for the title last year, are expected to compete for the men.

"I love being able to compete on my home hills and it’s a great time of year where we have almost every ski jumper in North America in Park City competing on all hill sizes at all ages," Johnson said. "It’s also a great chance for us to see where our competitive level is before we head over to Europe for the Grand Prix circuit that begins in just a few weeks."

Jumping Championships are set to start with the trial round at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4, at the UOP.
