Sara Takanashi (高梨 沙羅 Takanashi Sara?, born 8 October 1996 in Kamikawa, Hokkaido) is a Japanese ski jumper.[1]

Career[edit]

Takanashi placed sixth in the 2011 World Championship in Oslo.[1] In World Cup she debuted on 3 December 2011 in Lillehammer where she took fifth place.

Takanashi is the current women's record holder of the Kiremitliktepe Ski Jump (HS109) in Erzurum, Turkey with 110.5 m set at the 2012 FIS Junior World Ski Championships on February 21.[2]

Takanashi has a record of 24 World Cup victories followed by Sarah Hendrickson's record of 13 wins.[3][4][5]

She has won 15 individual World Cup ski jumping events out of 18 in the 2013/14 season. At the Olympics event, she was third after her first jump, in which she flew 100 meters for 124.1 points, but her second jump apparently failed—the 98.5-meter jump earned 118.9 points, or ninth in the ranking, then ranked as 4th overall, thus missed the podium first time in the season.[6]
