Biography

Jerry Mountain was US ski jump champion in 1971, 1973, and 1975. In September 1971, while pounding a nail into brick, it bounced back and struck him in the right eye, and he lost the eye. But he made the 1972 Winter Olympic team only four months later. He competed as a one-eyed jumper for the rest of his career, winning two national titles. Martin represented the US at the 1970 and 1974 World Championships. In 1971 he set the Pine Mountain ski jump record of 345 feet (105 m). He was the ski flying champion at Copper Peak Hill in both 1973 and 1975.
