Interesting facts & figures

Norway has won eleven Olympic gold medals in Ski Jumping over the years, but PyeongChang 2018 was the first gold in the team event. Norway is now only the second nation behind Germany to take gold in every Olympic Ski Jumping event.

The Norwegians also topped the medal standings in Ski Jumping with five medals (two gold, one silver, two bronze) ahead of Germany with four (one gold, three silver) and Poland and Japan with one each.

Special achievements

Robert Johansson (NOR) won a medal in every Ski Jumping event in PyeongChang 2018 with bronze from both the normal and large hill and gold in the team event, where he was the last jumper ultimately giving Norway the gold. Andreas Wellinger (GER) performed the same feat with gold from the large hill and silver from the normal hill and in the team event.

The last ski jumper to win a medal in each of the three men's Ski Jumping events at a single Olympics was Gregor Schlierenzauer (AUT) in Vancouver 2010.
