- Lindsey Van
Lindsey Van was born on November 27, 1984, in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. Lindsey Van won the very first World Cup ski jumping competition in 2009 at Liberec in the Czech Republic. In 2010, Lindsey Van was part of a lawsuit against Olympic organizers claiming discrimination because only men were allowed to compete in the ski jumping competition.
The lawsuit was dismissed, but women will be competing in the ski jump competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Lindsey Van was numb when she heard the news that women will be competing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in ski jumping.
