What is Ski Jumping?

Ski jumping is a sport in which skiers go down a take-off ramp, jump and attempt to impress judges, who give points for style. The skis used for ski jumping are wide and long (260 to 275 centimetres (102 to 108 in)). Ski jumping is predominantly a winter sport, performed on snow, and is part of the Winter Olympics Sport , but can also be performed in summer on artificial surfaces – porcelain or frost rail track on the inrun , plastic on the landing hill. Ski jumping belongs to the nordic type of competitive skiing.

His Inspiration.


"Anders was one of the most consistent of the guys last season. While there was some highs and lows, he generally jumped to a consistent level. If he brings his overall game up a notch he will be a consistent top 30 World Cup performer."

New TV Series

Each of the Johnson boys Anders, Mike, Axl and Ty has his own godlike power; it's just that their powers aren't all that powerful.

Anders




Anders is the incarnation of Bragi, the Norse God of Poetry, and also the black sheep of the Johnson clan. He has little or no shame in using and abusing his powers of persuasion both for business, through his boutique PR company j:pr; and for pleasure, through his love of beautiful women.

Thus Anders’ power has served him alright in a business sense. He runs a small (or boutique as he prefers to think of it) PR company, where he makes a respectable, if disreputable, living off of a client base who is largely more shallow than he.
