Jason Myslicki, Nordic Combined
Originally uploaded by Points North.
For several Olympics now, I've had to watch all the ski jumping competitions without a single Canadian to cheer for. But this year, for the first time since 1988, Jason Myslicki is leading a new crop of enthusiastic CANADIAN ski jumpers back into the Olympics. Whoo hoo!
Jason's a senior in this sport, and here he is flying in the Nordic Combined. He was 41st. It doesn't matter because you can't go from no-show for 18 years to a medal. Instead, his placement means Canada has a future.
