Meet the Athletes:
Ski Jumpers in the Eastern USA

Pictures of many young Eastern Ski Jumpers

Young jumpers grow and mature. Athletes move on and new youngsters burst on the scene. The last edition of Meet the Eastern Athletes page was six years old so we made some changes, removed a few inactive people to make room for new faces, and posted more up-to-date photos. Two previous versions are still available in Grampa's Attic and we comment below on some of the faces that have disappeared.
