Biography

Jens Weißflog's international career spanned 12 years, remarkably long for a ski jumper. His first season was exceptional, winning the Four Hills Tournament, the Overall World Cup, and gold and silver at the Sarajevo Olympics. Nicknamed "Floh" (flea) because of his low bodyweight, he again took the Overall World Cup in 1985, adding the normal hill world title in Seefeld. He remained a consistent top competitor for years, totalling 33 World Cup wins, a host of World Championship silver and bronze medals, as well as the 1989 world title in the normal hill. His greatest performance came at Lillehammer, when he won the large hill event, both individually and with the German team. He said goodbye to the sport with a fourth victory in the Four Hills Tournament. At present, Weißflog works as a ski jumping analyst for German television and owns a hotel.
