Athletes to Watch

Come out and cheer on these athletes, many of whom have just returned from the Beijing Olympic Games.

Anna Hoffmann | Anna “Squirt” Hoffmann is the youngest of three siblings that all grew up loving to ski. The Hoffmann had an affinity for ski jumping in particular. Two of her Hoffmann’s siblings, sister Elyse and her brother Joe were both on the U.S. Junior National Ski Jumping Team. At 15, Hoffmann was barely making it off the takeoff, but Coach Blake Hughes saw her passion, pushed her to continue pursuing the sport. Hoffmann went on to qualify for World Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany in 2021. She has also competed in four Junior World Championships. Hoffmann’s personal sports philosophy is that talent is great, but hard work takes you further. Currently, she attends the University of Utah and lives in Salt Lake City. Beijing Olympic Results: 37th Overall in Normal Hill and the only US woman to compete in Ski Jumping.

Jared Shumate | Jared “Jerry” Shumate started skiing at the age of 2 at his local mountain, Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. Ever since he can’t remember a time that he hasn’t loved skiing fast and catching air. Growing up in Park City, he had a myriad of Nordic Combined athletes that he looked up to, including Bill Demong, and coaches Blake Hughes, Logan Oxford, and Chris Francis. Shumate’s persona sports philosophy is it is better to focus on the process of reaching results-based goals rather than focusing on results-based goals themselves. Using this mentality, he hopes to score World Cup points in the 21/22 season, finish top-15 in a World Cup, and represent the United States at the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. Beijing Olympic Results: 19th in Normal Hill/10km, 17th in Large Hill/10km, 6th Overall in Team Large Hill/4x5km.

Jasper Good | Jasper “J-Spice” Good started off in the ski world as a freeskier, then entered Nordic Combined at 9-years-old. Good, alongside his teammate Ben Loomis, is a member of the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program (WCAP). A 2018 Olympian, and Good aims to once again qualify for the Olympics in 2022, and also become a consistent competitor on the World Cup circuit. Good graduated from Steamboat Springs, CO in 2014 and is currently attending the University of Utah. Outside of skiing, he also enjoys mountain biking, camping, traveling, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Beijing Olympic Results: 34th Overall in Large Hill/10km, 6th Overall in Team Large Hill/4x5km 

Ben Loomis | Ben Loomis grew up ski jumping at the Flying Eagles Ski Club in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. After watching his older brother Adam try the sport, he followed suit. He started at the young age of five and began traveling around the mid-west for competitions. After rising through the ranks, he knew he needed more. At the age of 15, Loomis moved to Park City, Utah, seeking a more adaptive school and higher quality training. After graduating from the Park City Winter Sports School, Loomis joined the U.S. Army in 2019 alongside Nordic Combined teammate, Jasper Good, to represent the United States of America as a soldier and as an athlete. Beijing Olympic Results: 15th Overall in Normal Hill/10km, 19th Overall in Large Hill/10km, 6th Overall in Team Large Hill/4x5km

LOCAL ATHLETES

Nina Lussi | As the middle sibling, Nina Lussi always wanted to keep up with her older sister on skis at an early age. She ski raced in her local NYSEF program in Lake Placid, New York before she tried jumping and cross country skiing. In the end, she loved the feeling of flying and ski jumping culture more than anything else. She looked up to Lindsey Van and Annette Sagen as a child and could not wait to compete internationally just like her idols. Being in a tough, competitive club growing up helped push her to the next level. Her dream as an athlete is to represent the United States at the Olympic Games and seek redemption at the Olympic Trials, where the last time she competed, she tore her ACL. During the off-season, Lussi focused on tumbling and acrobatic work to increase her body awareness in the air. Lussi has lived all over the world, in Lake Placid, Stams Austria, Park City, Kranjska Gora, Ljubljana, and now Courchevel. She speaks German and is learning French. Lussi is currently enrolled at the University of Utah.

Tate Franz | 16-year-old Tate Frantz was first named to the U.S. Men’s Junior National Team in 2020. In addition to attending the Northwood School, Frantz trains at the NTG in Lillehammer, Norway. His sports idols are Henry Johnstone and Sam Arquit because they have both helped push him to keep going in times of doubt. He has too many superstitions to count and enjoys running and mountain biking outside of Nordic skiing.
