Ski jumping at the 1924 Winter Olympics


Ski jumping at the 1924 Winter Olympics

At the 1924 Winter Olympics, one individual ski jumping event was contested. It was held on Monday 4 February 1924. The event was unusual, as the bronze medallist was not properly rewarded until 50 years later. Originally, Thorleif Haug was awarded third place, but a calculation error had been made. Upon its 1974 discovery, the medal was awarded to Anders Haugen of the United States.

This competition took place at Le Mont with a K-point of 71 meters.[1] The winner of the competition Jacob Tullin Thams also won a silver medal in sailing at the 1936 Summer Olympics; he is among very few athletes to win both Winter and Summer Olympic medals.
