Sarah Catherine Hendrickson (born August 1, 1994) is an American ski jumper, 2013 World Champion and a member of the Visa Team. Hendrickson was born in Salt Lake City, UT. She attended Park City High School until 2011 when she began competing in World Cup competitions for Ski Jumping, at which time she moved to The Winter Sports School in Park City, where she graduated in November 2012.

Sarah Hendrickson took 1st place on December 3, 2011 in Lillehammer and won her first World Cup ski jumping overall in season 2011/12. She has 13 World Cup wins in total. She also has two individual victories from the Continental Cup in Zakopane and Bischofsgrün.

It was announced on January 22, 2014 that Hendrickson was one of three women to make the U.S. Olympic ski jumping team competing at the 2014 Winter Olympics.[2] Hendrickson was the first woman ever to jump in the women's ski jumping event in the Olympic Games. [3]


On August 21, 2013, Sarah Hendrickson suffered a knee ligament damage in Oberstdorf.[4] Hendrickson is the last of five top female jumpers who, within a few months, had a bad fall and had to rest forcedly for a long recovery period, thus putting their good chances at the Olympic Games in Sochi at risk.
