According to the Sochi 2014 website, Toronto native Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes advanced to the final of the men's large hill ski jumping final on Saturday.

Boyd-Clowes delivered a strong 25th place and became the first Canadian to advance to the final since Stefan Reid of Calgary finished 30th at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino. It was also the best result for a Canadian ski jumper at an Olympic Winter Games since Horst Bulau of Ottawa, Ontario finished in seventh place in the large hill competition at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. Bulau's seventh place is the best ever result by a Canadian ski jumper in Olympic history.

The gold medalist in the men's large hill ski jumping competition was Kamil Stoch, who also captured gold a week ago in the normal hill. Noriaki Kasai of Japan won the silver medal and Peter Prevc of Slovenia won the bronze medal.

The ski jumping team competition will take place on Monday.
