Springer Tourney is an annual summer competition in Park City, Utah which boasts competitions on all 6 jumpinh hills from the k-10 all the way up to the k-120. The week consists of physical testing for all athletes from as young as 7 up to 18 year olds and helps track development and talent identification. National team athletes from Nordic Combined and Men’s and Women’s Ski Jumping administer the tests to 120+ junior skiers as well as coach them on the Jump Hill. Today was the k-90 competition and this afternoon there will be a nordic combined race up the Utah Olympic Park road based on this mornings jumping. Bryan Fletcher led the first round of jumping against a very strong field but Canada’s Mackenzie Clowes took the over-all title after 2 jumps. Filling out the top 15 men was an impressively diverse group of North America’s top ski-jumpers, Nordic Combined skiers and older Juniors. Here are some pics from the hill today:
