Sochi recap: Ski jumping, men’s large hill qualifying

This round only cuts the field from 61 to 50, and the top 10 get a bye, anyway. The top 10 can take practice jumps, but the pressure’s on everyone else to take the remaining 40 spots.

Date: 14-Feb

Sport: Ski jumping

Event: Men’s large hill qualifying

How U.S. fared: Survive and advance is the name of the game, and Nick Alexander (30th, 120 meters), Nick Fairall (31st, 120 meters) and Anders Johnson (36th, 112 meters) did just that. Peter Frenette (43rd, 111 meters) did not.

What happened: Nothing of consequence, but it’s always cool to watch.
