Ski jumper Erik Belshaw won the silver medal at the 2024 Junior World Championships.

Erik Belshaw took home the silver medal in the 2024 FIS Nordic Junior World Ski Championships individual HS102, becoming the first ever U.S. male ski jumper to medal at the Junior World Champs. 

In the first round, Belshaw jumped to 94.5 meters for 121.5 points, putting him fourth overall going into the final round. Belshaw was then able to best his first jump, soaring to 104.5 meters for 144.4 points, carding the longest jump of the day in the field of competition and earning a second place finish.

“Earlier this year, the staff and I sat down and made a goal to win a medal at Junior Worlds. We knew it was ambitious, but we also knew we had the athletes to do make it happen,” said Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined Sport Director Anders Johnson. “Today, Erik did something that has never been done in men’s ski jumping in the United States, which was winning a medal at Junior World Championships. I couldn’t be more proud and excited for Erik and the entire team.”

Jason Colby finished 23rd overall, going 92.0 and 93.0 meters for 233.6 points. Maxim Glyvka finished 56th overall, after tallying a 78.5 meter jump for 83.3 points. Tate Frantz was disqualified in the first round of competition.
