Sara Takanashi (高梨 沙羅, Takanashi Sara) (born 8 October 1996) is a Japanese ski jumper. She is the most successful female ski jumper to date, as well as one of the most successful athletes in the history of the sport, having won four World Cup titles (an all-time record shared with Matti Nykänen and Adam Małysz) and five World Championship medals. In her six-year World Cup career, Takanashi has never finished lower than third in the overall season-long standings. As of March 2017 she also shares the record for most individual World Cup victories—53—with Gregor Schlierenzauer.[1]

Career[edit]

Takanashi placed sixth in the 2011 World Championship in Oslo. 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 21 February.[2]

During the 2013/14 season in the lead up to the Winter Olympics, Takanashi won 15 out of 18 individual World Cup ski jumping events. At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, she was ranked third after her first jump in the medal round with a jump of 100 meters for 124.1 points, but her second jump was only 98.5-meters, dropping her to 4th overall in the final standings and missing the podium.[3]

In the 2015/16 season she won her third and record World Cup overall title four events before the end of the season.
