Anders Fannemel (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈɑnːəʂ ˈfɑnːəˌmeːl]; born 13 May 1991) is a Norwegian ski jumper. He is a former ski flying world record holder, with 251.5 m (825 ft) set in Vikersund on 15 February 2015.

Career[edit]

Fannemel started ski jumping when he was 14 years old, which is rather late compared to other elite ski jumpers. He made his debut in the Continental Cup in September 2008 in Lillehammer, scoring two seventh places over two days. He finished in lower positions throughout the rest of the 2008/09 season, but in the 2009/10 season he recorded a fifth and a first place in the Continental Cup, again in Lillehammer, in August 2009.[citation needed]

He made his World Cup debut in December 2009, again in Lillehammer, and collected his first World Cup points by finishing tenth.[1] He has two world cup wins and another five podiums. In 2015 season he was the first time in his career World Cup overall leader.[citation needed]

He holds the world record for the world's longest ski jump at 251.5 meters (825 feet), which he jumped in Vikersund, Norway on 15 February 2015, beating Peter Prevc's record that was set the day before by 1.5 meters.[citation needed]

He represents the sports club Hornindal IL[1] and lives in Hornindal.[2]
