HenrichTaylor Henrich will always have her place in the history books as the first woman to take part in ski jumping at an Olympic level. As a 16-year-old she wore bib number one during the first round of competition at the Innsbruck 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games where she finished fifth. Two years later Henrich participated in the Olympic debut of women’s ski jumping, finishing 13th in the individual normal hill event.

Henrich had made her international debut in August 2008 on the Continental Cup circuit before her 13th birthday. She would disappear from the international scene for two years, returning to the Continental Cup in January 2011. She competed at both the world championships and world junior championships in 2011, posting a better result against the senior competitors. That 18th place finish gave her a spot at the very first World Cup ski jumping event for women in Lillehammer, Norway in December 2011 where she finished 23rd.


Getting Into the Sport: Started ski jumping at age seven when she attended a summer camp at Canada Olympic Park… Outside Interests: Enjoys wakeboarding, water skiing, playing violin, dancing… Odds and Ends: Nickname: T-Dog…  Admires ski jumpers Gregor Schlierenzauer of Austria and Adam Malysz of Poland…
