Worlds in Oslo Norway Feb 25th

I am about to head out the door to begin my journey to Norway in a few minutes. I am headed there for World Championships. The Nordic Worlds are being held in Norway, the birth place of these sports. It is expected to be a great atmosphere with lots of people watching kinda like the Super Bowl is here.
Over the last few weeks I have been training here in Park City. I have had about 40 jumps on the K120 here with great training weather. I have also been in the gym, doing lost of cross country skiing, and some yoga. I feel confident in my jumping, and I am healthy! I am very excited to go to Norway for this competition. I think the competition will be at very high level. Austria’s Daniela Iraschko, Coline Mattel, are jumping very well so it should be a tight competition. My team consists of Jessica Jerome, Sarah Hendrickson, Abby Hughes, Alissa Johnson, and myself. You can watch the comp on, if you click on the women’s jumping link.
When I get back from Worlds I will be on my way to San Francisco to donate bone marrow. This is very exciting for me, and of course a bit scary. I was identified as a match for someone with Leukemia back in the fall, and after going through multiple test, I will be donating March 14th and 15th at UCSF. I hope I can help save someone’s life. You can sign up at The next few weeks should be exciting with Worlds, and then donating bone marrow. Thanks for the support. I will be updating while I am in Norway.

  1. I’m a supporter of Coline Mattel, but I hope a good competition and good fight for all in Oslo. I hope the best of you will win the medals. Congratulation by advance to give part of you own body for others: sportpeople have big heart.

  2. I am wishing you good luck… I will be watching and reporting on my blog about it. Perform well and I might write a post about you ;-)

  3. Yes, viel Glück, Van! Hope to see you there/here.
