"Anders was one of the most consistent of the guys last season. While there was some highs and lows, he generally jumped to a consistent level. If he brings his overall game up a notch he will be a consistent top 30 World Cup performer."
Age: Born April 23, 1989
Hometown: Plattsburgh, NY
Longest Jump: 173 meters, Planica, Slovenia
Anders made his first Olympic team at the tender age of 16. He has been a member of seven USA World Junior Teams and won the U.S. National jumping titles in both 2008 and 2009. His first World Cup event came at Bischofshofen AUT in 2009. Anders has now been a member of three USA Olympic ski jumping teams, most recently at Sochi 2014.
In October 2014 he was second at the US National Championships (NH) in Lake Placid, NY. A sign that he has started the season off right coupled with his great start in December 2014 with a fourth place finish at a FIS Cup in Notodden, NOR.

Anders Johnson made his first Olympic Team in 2006, followed up by making the Vancouver Team and then added Sochi to his already impressive career. He has a massive amount of ski jumping experience at the international level. He's also showen his true toughness in bouncing back quickly from injuries, even though it required much dedication and hard work. Anders saw great success in 2012 at the famed FIS Cup event at Brattleboro's Harris Hill, by taking a pair of wins. The sky is the limit for the coming 2014-2015 season.
Anders was born April 23, 1989, in Plattsburgh NY. He started jumping at age three in Lake Placid—his dad, Alan, is a former USST coach, well known figure in the Nordic world, and member of the Board of Directors for USA Ski Jumping.
The 24-year-old tied with Peter Frenette for the U.S. National large hill title in August in Park City, then followed it up the next day with an outright win on the normal hill. The season is starting off right for Anders. In January 2014, Anders was named as a member of the USA Olympic ski jumping team for Sochi, Russia.
Still with things to work on, he says his best jumps are still to come. We like that.
