Lindsey Van

While no American woman was able to medal in the first-ever ski jumping competition, it was still an important event for the athletes. Lindsey Van, the ski jumper who had been pushing to get the competition into the Olympics for years, was a favorite to win and ended up placing 15th. However, she said afterward that she was happy just to be able to compete in the debut competition.
