Men's Normal Hill, Individual

Ski Jumping at the 2002 Winter Games: Previous Winter Games ▪ Next Winter Games


Host City: Salt Lake City, United States
Venue(s): Utah Olympic Park, Park City, Utah
Date Started: February 10, 2002
Date Finished: February 10, 2002

Gold: SUI Simon Ammann
Silver: GER Sven Hannawald
Bronze: POL Adam Małysz


The 2001-02 season had dominated by Germany’s [Sven Hannawald] who had become the first man in the fifty-year history of the tournament to perform the remarkable feat of winning a clean sweep of the Four Hills Tournament. If he was to be challenged in Salt Lake City then conventional thinking said that this challenge might come from 2001 world champion [Adam Małysz] of Poland.

Although he had performed consistently throughout the season few would have picked the bespectacled Swiss [Simon Ammann] to feature but he led the way after the first round as his superior style marks helped him push into a small lead. With Małysz having already guaranteed a rare winter medal for Poland only Hannawald and Amman were left to jump. Although the German’s leap was half-a-metre longer than Amman’s it failed to close the points deficit and Switzerland’s first Olympic ski jumping title was confirmed.
