See Sarah's current WC results at FIS's website.
Sarah won 9 of 13 events in the inaugural World Cup (WC) ski jumping circuit in 2012 to become the overall World Cup champion — a first for the sport. She’s the first American (male or female) to medal at a Junior World Championships — she has a bronze and a silver.
For as long as she can remember, her childhood weekends were filled with 8 a.m.-4 p.m. ski days with her family. While skiing, every little jump in the run was an opportunity to get some air and take a risk. When her brother discovered ski jumping at age 8 and she was 5, it seemed like the perfect fit. Brother Nick started jumping and after watching him for two years, she had had enough and decided to try it. That was just the start.
Her favorite feeling in the world is flying over 60 mph and going as far as she can. Her longest leap is 143 meters in Lillehammer, Norway. She’s a talented soccer player and loves to alpine and tele ski.
