Amman Takes Gold...In Salt Lake City

Over the weekend Swiss Ski Jumper Simon Amman took gold in the K95 Ski Jumping event at the Vancouver Olympics. This wasn't the first time the Harry Potter look alike stood atop the medals stand. At the 2002 Salt Lake Games he swept the individual honors winning gold in both the K95 and K120. Below is video of the gold-winning jump along with his competitors. Although Ski Jumping is a sport familiar only to Americans every four years there are a few things that should jump out to the Olympic fan. Adam Malysz of Poland is among the world's best and Finland is know for some of the best ski jumpers in the world. Amman is the third individual to jump.
