USANS will send a total of five Men’s Ski Jumping athletes to compete at this weekend’s World Cup events in Lake Placid, New York.

Park City, Utah (February 7, 2023) – On September 22, 2022, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS), USA Nordic Sport (USANS), and the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), announced the return of the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup to the United States of America (US). This weekend, Lake Placid, New York, will host three different Men’s Ski Jumping World Cup events on the HS128 hill at the Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex, with athletes will competing from February 10-12.

The last Ski Jumping World Cup in Lake Placid took place in 1990, with the most recent Ski Jumping World Cup host in the US being Park City, Utah, 19 years ago in 2004.

USANS will be sending five Men’s Ski Jumping athletes to compete in this weekend’s World Cup events in Lake Placid. Tate Frantz, a Lake Placid local, who grew up skiing for New York Ski Ed Foundation (NYSEF), will be making his Ski Jumping World Cup debut this weekend. He will be joined by Andrew UrlaubCasey LarsonDecker Dean and Erik Belshaw, who are all familiar with the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup circuit and have put together a great season so far. 

Belshaw has scored World Cup points twice this season, notching a 24th place finish in Engelberg, Austria, and a 26th place finish in Oberstdorf, Germany. Urlaub is coming off scoring his first-ever World Cup points in Willingen, Germany, last weekend, as he finished 26th overall. Both Dean and Larson have scored World Cup points in previous seasons, but are still looking for their first World Cup points of the 2023 season, as they hope to earn them on US soil. 

The “Super Team” competition will also be making its Men’s Ski Jumping World Cup debut in Lake Placid. This competition format was designed to accommodate smaller nations that are unable to field a four-person team. Each Super Team consists of two athletes per country, who compete in a three-round elimination format.

“What an honor it is to host the Ski Jumping World Cup in Lake Placid this weekend,” said USA Nordic CEO Adam Provost. “The two-day event will be an opportunity to showcase the best Ski Jumpers in the world in one of our most beautiful venues. We can’t wait to show the world that the United States should be an annual World Cup stop.”
