|This site has been designed to support ski
jumping in the United States of America, introduce the sport to those who
never really understood how men could fly and, most importantly, spread
the word about this wonderful sport in the USA and provide detailed
information and results for fans and supporters all over the world.
|Alborn's 221.5m in March
2001 and Ken Anderson, webmaster of the most popular english website
dedicated to ski jumping (www.skijumpingcentral.com),
got me started and after getting to know more about ski jumping in the
USA, athletes, coaches, hills and especially the fact that it lacks media
and public recognition, I was hooked.
First step was
the so-called "Alan Alborn Yahoo! group", meant to bring
together fans and supporters of US ski jumping from all over the world.
Soon there were more than 60 members, discussing about different topics
and exchanging information about international and national competitions
and events. It still exists, have a look at the link-section!
The first version of the "Ski
Jumping in the USA"-website was created in summer/autumn 2001, new
and more detailed profiles, pictures, as well as yearly interviews with
the athletes attending the summer competitions in Germany, were added over
the years, all with the help of many, many great people here in Europe,
but especially oversea in the United States.
was online in July 2004.
