U.S. Ski & Snowboard Nominates Anna Hoffmann To Ski Jumping Team Roster For Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022
U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today its nomination of Anna Hoffmann by the U.S. Olympic Ski Jumping Team to represent Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.
Hoffmann hails from Madison, Wisconsin, where she was a part of the Blackhawk Ski Club. She is a 2021 World Championship qualifier and a four-time Junior World Championship team member. Last month, Hoffmann also won the Olympic Trials in Lake Placid, New York.
Hoffmann’s nomination was granted following a reallocation of quota positions by the International Ski Federation (FIS). Once the quota was expanded to add an athlete from the United States, Hoffmann was selected based on her victory at the Olympic Trials event in Lake Placid and her World Cup and Continental Cup results.
Women’s ski jumping has one medal event at the 2022 Olympics: the Individual Normal Hill competition. The event will be two rounds. Both the first and final rounds are scheduled for Saturday, February 5.
